"This is supposed to be a copycat of the sauce served on Hooter's Hotwings. I've never been in a Hooter's (and won't ever be)so I don't know how authentic the taste is, but these are quite tasty on hot wings, deep fried plain or breaded either one works nicely with this sauce."
Serving Size: 1 (96 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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!"
