Just like the halftime show and cheerleaders, wings are considered to be a great component on game day, but who says they can't be the main event? If you're willing to travel beyond the buffalo, the poultry possibilities are boundless, and prepping a wing buffet is easy to boot. Just fry up enough wing parts to feed your crowd, and toss them in a variety of make-ahead sauces to keep palates piqued and appetites sated. Check out our wing wrap-up for inspiration, but don't be afraid to get creative and experiment with your favorite flavors and ingredients!
