ps. I forgot, I also added a tad of A-1 and Worcheshire sauce to give it a bolder taste. My husband was very happy with the latest creation!
I made this, followed the recipe exactly as stated. But you see here's the problem. It doesn't take long to realize that this is mostly butter. I mean its like 75% butter. Not a good sauce to dip wings in. As for the heat, there's just none there with all that butter diluting it. I haven't been to hooters in 3 years because their hottest sauce is quite weak. This is coming for a guy who tries the hottest wings at every place that has them. The flavor is ok but tobasco has a TON of vinigar in it. If your interested in a sauce thats hot, your wasting your time with this one. PS the comment by the hooters anorak below made me laugh.
This is NOT the real Hooters recipe.
As a regular Hooters customer who, in his lifetime, has consumed more than his share of their fine wings, I feel more than qualified to be able to compare this recipe to the taste of the actual Hooters sauce. While it comes close, it is not an exact copy. I will say, however, that is is very tasty and I will use it often for my tailgate and Sunday afternoon football parties. Bottom line: this sauce rocks!
I've never had Hooters wings so can't really compare this to theirs but I like it nonetheless. I used it in a different way. I had Costcos Buffalo style meatballs and was looking for a sauce to drizzle over them. I found this recipe and it did the trick. I loved the Balsamic Vinegar in it. I'm a huge fan of the stuff. It was so easy to make. I made half the recipe. Try this you'll like it.
This is nothing similar to the "copycat" recipe of Hooters Chicken Wings I have which is published by Todd Wilber "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes". I'm sure it's good, but wondering about the "copycat" recipe.
I prepared 1/3 of this recipe because I had only a few wings. I used left over wings from a local restaurant that were supposed to be hot and spicy, well they were not, they were really rather bland. I dunked these wings into this sauce and reheated them. This sauce "rescued" my left over wings. They were so good reheated in this sauce! I even drizzled some over the wings after reheating. This is a really good sauce! Thanks Kay!
Wowowow! this sauce is fantastic. I made it at the weekend, using your suggestion of re-frying the wings after I dunked them in the sauce. I served them with bleu cheese dressing and everyone gobbled them up! Thanks so much for a real winner!
It tastes so much like Hooter's. I am very impressed by this recipe!
