Our Top 10 Big Game Recipes Never Lose

We gathered the stats, we crunched the numbers, and these 10 recipes came out on top! They're the big winners, dominating play at last year's football watch parties. They're the wings, dips, and finger foods that America reached for at game time.

How many will you be making for the big game?

1. Baked Buffalo Wings

"These easy to make hot wings are crispy without being fried. Always yummy to snack on. They only take 10 minutes for prep, but need to be refrigerated for about an hour so the flour coating is firm. You can add more cayenne or use a higher hot sauce to butter ratio if you like them spicier!" -- Leesah

"My whole family is licking the Crock Pot! With Super Bowl weekend coming up, I thought I'd give this a test run tonight, and they are screaming that I have to make it again before next weekend!

6. Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

"I made them as directed minus the homemade sauce. As it was Super Bowl Sunday and I'd already made tons of other things I didn't want to hassel with that part. The breading was a perfect touch and I really think keeping the wings in the fridge for 90 minutes worked wonders on helping the chicken hold the breading. I made a ton of these and boy did they go fast! Can't wait for an excuse to make them again!" -- newbieveggie
