    Buffalo Sauce recipes are all too often more complicated than they need to be. There are only a couple of buffalo sauce ingredients needed for the classic sauce.

     

    Before I share all I know about buffalo sauce, let me tell you about the time I went on a date with John Stamos, yes, Uncle Jesse from Full House.

     

    I attended a wedding in Buffalo with my husband. It was winter, cold and dreary. We got to the airport for an early flight back to Baltimore, but were a little sad we missed out on going to the famous Anchor Bar, home of the Buffalo wing.

     

     

    Luckily, there is a 24 hour Anchor Bar at the Buffalo Airport. We sat down for some breakfast wings. There was one other table in the small space, all carrying on and laughing. We sat down and ordered when my husband starting texting me (from across the table.) Hey… is that Uncle Jesse?

     

    Me: No… he is too short. John Stamos is much taller and more handsome. 

     

    We sat in silence eavesdropping, as one does when they think they might be sitting next to Uncle Jesse. Lo and behold, it WAS him! I totally Instagram stalked him and he had just posted his own plate of wings from the Buffalo Airport Anchor Bar.

     

    So the version of my story goes, I was on a date with Uncle Jesse. We sat next to each and awkwardly ate buffalo wings. Turns out he was playing a gig at the casino with the Beach Boys, who were also at the table, but less recognizable (at least to me.)

    So now onto buffalo sauce…  buffalo sauce ingredients are typically a base of vinegar and butter. Generally speaking, the two are on a continuum; the more butter the more mild, the more vinegar, the spicer. Different types of chile powder are used, but generally it is a basic cayenne pepper.

    Anchor Bar Buffalo Wing Sauce is only two ingredients: Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and Butter. Yep. Those are the only two ingredients in classic buffalo wing sauce. Check out my recipe notes for some buffalo sauce alternatives!

    Tools for making Buffalo Sauce:

    Heavy Bottom Sauce Pan– this will be one of your most used kitchen tools. Having something that is heavy bottom will distribute heat better and prevent burning whether you are using an electric or gas range.

    Ramekins– I like giving folks their own individual sauce cups. Then you don’t have to worry about double dipping! use them for buffalo sauce, blue cheese or ranch dressing! Ramekins are also great for ingredient preparation and baking mini soufflés.
