Hot sauce is to wings what gravy is to turkey. You can't have one without the other. Making sauce for buffalo wings like Hooters makes is not hard at all. You need Louisiana Hot Sauce and butter as the main ingredients. Add garlic powder and black pepper to suit your taste buds. You can even add a little sugar if you like that sort of thing.

Start with 1 cup of Louisiana Hot Sauce and 1 stick of butter. You can use the butter to control the heat of the sauce. If you like a mild sauce, use more butter. For a hotter sauce, use less butter.

You can melt the butter into the hot sauce on the stove or in the microwave. I think the microwave is the easier way. Put it on for 3 minutes in a microwave safe bowl, take it out, stir it, and you have a perfect sauce. If you use the stove to make your sauce, use low heat and melt the butter gradually. If your heat is too high, the sauce will not mix uniformly.

Now it is time to coat your wings with Hooters sauce.

Put the wings in a large bowl. They put the wings at hooters in a large stainless steel bowl, but any bowl will work.

Now pour some sauce in with them. A good rule of thumb is to use about half a cup of sauce per dozen wings or one big ladle scoop full. Next, toss the wings in the bowl gently, using a circular motion.

If you like your wings extra saucy, put extra sauce on once they are on your plate. If you put too much sauce in your bowl, then try to toss the wings, the wings will remain in the bottom of the bowl and the sauce will end up on your shirt and possible your face.

Slide the wings out of the bowl and onto a plate. You can use a cake spatula to scrape the remaining sauce out of the bowl and onto your wings. Wings go great with celery and ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing.
