How To Make Buffalo Sauce

Making buffalo sauce at home is surprisingly easy! All you need is a few ingredients for this classic sauce. Real butter is a must, as it brings a velvety smoothness and richness to the sauce, while also balancing the tanginess and spiciness of the other ingredients.

Get Started

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

Gather unsalted butter, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and cayenne. Make sure you use cold butter, as it’ll keep the sauce silky smooth as it melts and combines together.

Step 2: Combine Ingredients

Heat a saucepan on medium-low heat and begin combining ingredients. Gently begin stirring together.

Step 3: Bring to a Simmer

Once all ingredients are stirred together, let the butter melt and bring the mixture to a simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Step 4: Cool the Sauce

Once the sauce has thickened slightly, take the saucepan off the heat, allowing it to cool. This step is important to ensure the sauce thickens for a delectable texture.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!

Once your buffalo sauce is cooled and thickened, use it to coat chicken wings, drizzle over cauliflower or add to potato skins. The possibilities are endless. Check out the full recipe for the perfect homemade buffalo wings!
