Beer? Check. Big comfy sofa? Check. Game in high-definition? Check. Wait, there's something missing though. Why, of course — wings! Watching a football game with a bunch of friends just wouldn't be the same without this iconic party food, and The Daily Meal has rounded up some of its best wing recipes to help get your party off the ground and keep it going strong.
Looking for a no-frills classic recipe? Be sure to check out this Traditional Buffalo Wings Recipe, which uses Frank's RedHot (a must) and a touch of butter and cider vinegar. Or, if you're looking for a sweet-hot twist, then don't miss out on these Honey-Sriracha Glazed Buffalo Wings from Randy Clemens, author of The Sriracha Cookbook (surprise, surprise). For a more Asian-inspired twist, try Namiko Chen's Garlic-Miso Chicken Wings which can't be beat for their umami flavor, and for the really adventurous, there are Cranberry Sweet Chili Wings with Creamy Feta Sauce.
Whatever wings you decide to make though, to ensure success at every step, be sure to read up on How to Make Perfect Hot Wings. Making hot wings isn't rocket science, but it definitely helps to have a few pointers. Then, get ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy the game!
