Seriously, the only reason I would bother to watch football is for the tight butts in shiny pants and the snacks. Since you can’t seem to avoid football this time of year, bring on the snacks!


Buffalo Wings
1/4 – 1/2 recipe Fat Man’s Brine
3 1/2 lbs chicken wings

3 T unsalted butter
1 c Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
2 1/2 t Tabasco sauce
1 1/2 t cayenne pepper

Blue-Cheese Dressing

Celery sticks

Brine wings for 1/2 hour to an hour. Rinse and pat dry. Bake in a 400°f oven for 20 – 30 minutes, or until skin is golden brown and insides are cooked.

While wings are cooking, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add Franks, Tabasco, and cayenne pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until hot. Lower heat, and keep warm until ready to use.

When wings are done, toss wings and sauce together in a tightly sealed tupperware container and shake until wings are covered.

Serve with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.
