We're Bringing Buffalo Wings to the Communal Table: Big-Game Edition

By: Victoria Phillips

The Super Bowl: It's the pinnacle of the pro football season. Even more important than which teams are playing, however, is what you'll be serving to keep family and friends fueled until the last touchdown. Whether you have your recipes in order for the big day or you’re looking for some inspiration, we thought we would share some of the best offerings out there.

We kicked off our first Communal Table on Food Network back in November for Thanksgiving, and the response was so outstanding that we decided the Super Bowl deserved the same attention. Today, experts from the industry are excited to “pull up a chair” to our table and offer readers their favorite recipes for appetizers, desserts and drinks for the big game.

We've chosen to bring Alton's Buffalo Wings to the table — an easy, last-minute recipe with only five ingredients. Alton's secret for success is to first steam the wings before baking them in the oven on parchment paper. Tossed with garlic, hot sauce and salt, all of the flavors seep into the crispy chicken for tangy wings the whole family will love.
