the best ever baked buffalo wings

Serious question --

When you hear the word football, what's reeeeeally the first thing that pops into your mind?

If you said fantasy leagues and bro claps, please click the x and the top of this screen. However, if you said beer & wings, well, I think you just found yourself a new best friend.

I really don't understand people who genuinely enjoy the season just for the sport itself, because in my opinion, there is so much for to football season then just a bunch of guys chasing after a ball and destroying your life financially. It's about getting together with friends over good food and good beer and enjoying a game of who's going to cheat this year

LAWL, I'm kidding. But really -- let's start focusing on the real MVP's of footballs season, and we can start by making some of these wings.

(they're world famous, or at least that's what my friends tell me)

the best ever baked buffalo wings

2 1/2 lbs wings (washed and patted dry)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon lawrys season salt
1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning 
1 tablespoon paprika
1 cup franks hot sauce
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

preheat your oven to 425.
after you have washed and dried your wings, place them in a ziploc bag. to the bag, add lawrys season salt, cajun seasoning, olive oil, and half of your garlic powder. seal and shake all ingredients together being sure to coat the wings.

set aside for 10 minutes.

line a baking sheet with tin foil, then add your wings one by one in a single layer. sprinkle on your paprika and bake for 1 hour flipping them over half way through.

when wings are just about finished, add your butter to a saucepan. allow to melt then remove from heat. add in your hot sauce, black pepper, and remaining garlic powder. stir to combined.

pour sauce over wings, toss to coat, and enjoy!
