No B.S. Recipes: Mel's Red Hot Baked Wings


This week's No B.S. Recipe is Mel's Red Hot Baked Wings. Enjoy.


16-18 wings


  • 16-18 chicken wings
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup Frank's RedHot Sauce (original)
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


Sprinkle cayenne (or chili powder) directly on uncooked wings. Bake/roast wings, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 45-55 min, until they're cooked through and golden brown.

(My wings were frozen...and I just stuck them in frozen at 400 for about an hour and 10 min; it’s variable).

Mix together 1/2 cup Frank's RedHot sauce (original), 1/3 cup melted butter, and about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Pour over hot wings and coat evenly.

Stick back in the 400 degree oven for 10 more minutes, turning often. About half way through, sprinkle a little more brown sugar on top, and mix in. Bake until the sauce gets gooey. Remove from oven and let sit for a few minutes, sauce will continue to goo up a little.

Enjoy, preferably with celery, blue cheese dressing, and of course, beer.
