Barfalo Wings Recipe Shopping List
for 12 People:

___1 - 5 pound bag of frozen drummette style chicken wings

___oil for frying

___salt, pepper and garlic powder

___8 ounces of corn syrup

___8 ounces of your favorite BBQ sauce

___a little hot sauce


The Day of the Party:

When frying, keep the chicken frozen. That’s right, you’ll be dropping frozen chicken wings into the hot oil – so be careful. Use a pan/pot that will have enough oil to fry, but not more than half full with oil.

Always use metal tongs to handle the chicken. Don’t splash the chicken into the oil, instead hold the chicken with tongs just above the oil surface and let it gently fall. Use a glove or potholder, never a towel. And remember, this method works with wings, not necessarily with other chicken parts.

We recommend using a Fry Daddy frier from Presto:

You’ll be deep-frying with hot oil at 350°F . You will need a fairly large container of oil, or plan on making several batches in a smaller unit. TIP: If you are going to be doing a lot of frying in your home, you might want to buy a small deep-fryer. Often inexpensive, these cookers automatically go to the proper temperature and usually do a great job. We use a “fry-daddy”.

Close to party time, carefully drop the frozen drummettes into the hot oil for 12 minutes. Drain and serve immediately.

While the wings are frying, assemble the sauce by combining the corn syrup, BBQ sauce, spices and a bit of hot sauce. Adjust to your taste.

You want a sweet, red sauce, on the drippy side.

Shish KaDogs - you put WHAT on a stick?!

It’s Halloween. Any self-respecting party is going to be serving skewered dogs, right? Well, ours does! How about yours?

Shish KaDogs Recipe Shopping List
for 12 People:

___ 1 pound hot dogs

___ 1 can creamed corn

___ 1 package of 6 inch wooden skewer sticks


The Day of the Party:

Hot dogs are fully cooked when you buy them. They need (or not) to be warmed up a bit. Here’s how we do it:

Cut the dogs into 3/4 pieces, and skewer them up.

Open the canned corn, and heat it through on the stove top.

Shortly before guests arrive, give the dogs a blast in the microwave - 2 minutes or so will do. Remember, they’re fully cooked.

Stuffed Bathrooms Recipe Shopping List

___1 - dozen jumbo eggs

___1 pound your favorite sausage

___1 small onion

___few shakes of bread crumbs

___salt, pepper and garlic


The Day Before the Party:

Hard boil the eggs by covering them in cold water, heating the water to a boil, cook for 2 minutes, turn off the heat, cover and wait for 20 minutes. Then run them under cold water until completely cool. FYI - this is the way we always cook hard boiled eggs.

Peel the eggs, carefully cut in half, and nip off a bit of egg on the bottom of each half so that it will not roll around. Refrigerate.

Carefully remove the egg yokes into a mixing bowl and refrigerate. You won’t be using them for this recipe, so save them for another.

Finely chop the onion and saute in a bit of oil. Add the sausage and seasonings to your taste - then cook through. Allow to cool.

Mix the cooled sausage with bread crumbs and check for taste. Add whatever spices you like.

Stuff the eggs like normal deviled eggs, nice and rounded. You’re going to have more stuffing than you need - we’ll be using the extra for a dip on your table. Refrigerate it in a bowl or bag.

Shortly before your guests arrive, arrange the Stuffed Bathrooms on a serving dish.

We have fun with this, putting some carefully arranged toilet paper around - after all, they might need some.

And we like to have a little “spilled around the rim...”
