Check Out GameDay Eats

Posted by Dave On October - 3 - 2008

I got an email a few days ago alerting me to a new website called GameDay Eats. I went ahead and checked it out and it is a site dedicated to tailgate food and tailgating recipes. Right now they have 450 recipes and they plan on adding about 50 new recipes on a monthly basis. And with all kinds of recipes categories ranging from Appetizers to Breakfast / Brunch to Mexican / Tex-Mex to Soups to Vegetables, it looks like the site just about has all the bases covered.

I clicked on their Featured Recipe and it gave me Restaurant Style Buffalo Wings. I am sure since they contacted me asking for a little pub they wouldn’t mind me sharing with you all a recipe or two. Feel free to check them out and add a recipe of your own. Who knows, if it is good enough, yours might be the next one they feature.


Vegetable oil (for frying)
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup Crystal Louisiana Hot Sauce
Dash of ground pepper
Dash of garlic powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 chicken wings, cut into thirds and wing tips discarded(defrosted and dried if frozen)
Blue Cheese dressing
Celery sticks

Pour 2 inches of oil into deep fryer and heat to 375 degrees F.

In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add sauce, black pepper and garlic powder and stir until well mixed.

Rinse chicken wings under cold water and drain excess water. Drop wings into bag, a few at a time, shaking to coat after each addition. When all wings have been coated, remove from bag and place on wax-paper lined plate or tray. Refrigerate at least 1 hours to help set coating.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Carefully lower a few wings, at a time into oil. Fry 15 – 20 minutes or until light brown. Drain wings on paper towel and repeat with remaining wings.

Place cooked wings in large ovenproof bowl or baking pan; pour sauce over wings and stir to coat thoroughly. Place in oven 5 minutes or so to make sure all wings are served hot.
