3 Best Wing Flavors to Serve at Your Next Event
Hot wings — a quintessential American classic. Whether you prefer them smothered with sauce or coated in dry rub, wings are a crowd pleaser that goes over well at almost any gathering. If you’re planning to offer a hot wing bar at your next event, here are three great flavors to try!
A savory Italian style wing loaded with herbs and cheese, garlic parmesan wings are sure to be an instant hit with your guests! Start by marinating your naked wings in a blend of salt, minced garlic, garlic powder, black pepper, fresh or dried Italian herbs and a splash of white wine; once your wings are fried, toss them in a sauce of butter, minced garlic, grated parmesan cheese and more fresh herbs. Garnish with extra cheese and a pinch of parsley.
Sweet Hawaiian Barbecue
Barbecue wings are popular wherever they’re served, but this method adds a splash of the tropics for a twist! Marinade your wings in your favorite sauce or dry rub, and drain well when they’re done frying; before tossing in your favorite barbecue sauce, add a generous splash of pineapple juice, soy sauce and a hint of spicy chili sauce (like Sriracha).
For a zesty Asian kick, spicy teriyaki wings are the way to go! For your marinade, use a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, green onions and white or rice wine vinegar; your sauce will use several of the same ingredients, but will swap out green onion and garlic for brown sugar and red pepper flakes or chili sauce.
The best part about serving wings at your next event is the ability to serve something for everyone — whether your guests like spicy and exotic or classic buffalo style, hot wings are a great finger food for any occasion!
