We got tired of spending $30 a week (and that was the "special coupon") for wings/fries! Time to get "thrifty!"

How to Make Wing night on a budget!


  1. I love to use our Fry Daddy so I start by filling her up with Veggie Oil and setting it to Wings
  2. Remove approx 15 wings (serves 3) and thaw. when they are defrosted completely, rinse and pat dry.
  3. place wings 5 at a time in basket and lower into oil. I set my timer for 8 minute intervals then check the wings. I like to turn them a bit then lower back into the oil for another 3 min approx. It depends on the size of the wings. Mine (from Walmart) were large so I cooked them a lil longer wanting to make sure they were fully done.
  4. remove the wings from oil and pat dry lightly.
  5. coat the bottom of a big lidded bowl (or do what I did and use a gallon bucket from ice cream) with your hot sauce of choice.
  6. Toss in your wings, lid it up and give 'er a good shakey shake. If you have kids around, make sure the lid's on good and give it to them. Keeps them away from the deep fryer!
  7. Finish the rest of the wings the same way, frying, drying then coating to your desired strength.
  8. Serve with homemade french fries (see other recipes) and lots of napkins!
