3 Tasty Buffalo Sauce Recipes You Should Know

You might have contemplated once on how Buffalo wings got their name due to the fact that they are actually chicken. These tiny chicken wings share no resemblance to the meatiness of a wooly buffalo, so why are they called Buffalo wings? It all started with a town located in upstate New York. There was a local joint named Anchor Bar, which accidentally slathered a mixture butter and hot sauce onto some deep-fried chicken wings. They were then served alongside blue cheese dressing and celery sticks. The aforementioned serves as the basis of the chicken wings that we know today. These Buffalo wings are often served in sports bars as spicy and deep-fried complement to cold beer as well as a game of soccer.

If you are planning to hire some barbeque catering to your home sometime soon, it is good to know that Buffalo sauce can be used in conjunction with many recipes.
