Have you ever eaten one of those pizzas where the crust is just so good, so buttery and garlicky with sprinkles of Parmesan cheese. It’s that crust where you can forego the pizza and just eat that delectable, flavorful bread alone. Possibly dipped in ranch or marinara sauce.
Maybe I’m the only one that loves that tasty crust that much, but the flavors in that crust is what I was going for with this weeks wing flavor for #WingItWednesday – the Buttery Garlic Parmesan Wings. I’m pretty sure I nailed it too.
I decided to dredge the wings in a flour/corn starch combo with garlic powder seasonings mixed with red pepper flakes and a few others and whip out the deep fryer again to get a nice, crispy crunchy texture. Then I melted some butter – not just any butter, but a salted sweet cream butter. What can I say, that’s just how I roll. Everything tastes better with salted sweet cream butter. Oh, then I sauteed the minced garlic in it to, then added some Parmesan. I tossed these crunchy wings in that buttery garlic Parmesan sauce and served it with marinara sauce and I swear I heard the gates of heaven open up.
It’s safe to say they’re good.
This would be a great addition to the appetizer table for your next game day get together.

It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve shared different ways to make the wings as well as a variety of sauce flavors.
