We’re kicking off our 5th Annual Week of Wings (WOW) series today – a full week of wing sauce reviews and recipes. Luckily, we’re never lacking for wing sauces to sample or recipes to try! And with so many rubs that make some great dry wings, we’ve got plenty to work with, so let’s get started.
Patter Fam Sauces Sissy Sally Wing Sauce
Week of Wings 5 – Day 1. We’re going to start out with the very mild “Sissy Sally” wing sauce from Patter Fam Sauces.
“Sissy Sally” is their mildest of 4 wings sauces that also include “Kickin’ It Old School”, “Burnin’ Love” and “Holy Ghost Revival”.
Preparation: Deep fried. We did our usual 3 step cook – baked at 350º for 40 minutes (turning once half-way through), deep fried at 350 – 375º for 2 – 3 minutes, then tossed in the sauce. See our Wings 101 post for more info.
Ingredients: cayenne peppers, vinegar, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, water, Worcestershire sauce, salt, yellow mustard, tomato concentrate, garlic powder, cornstarch.
Texture & Appearance: Reddish-orange in color and fairly thin. It sets up very well on the wings and finishes like a glaze. The results are very pretty, shiny wings that stayed crispy. Beautiful.
Taste on wings: Tasting it straight out of the bottle, we weren’t sure we would like this sauce, let alone enjoy it. This goes to prove what we’ve discovered many times about wing sauces… they are meant to be cooked with, because after tossing the hot crispy wings into the sauce, the flavors really blossomed and wowed us. Sweet, sticky and savory, they were amazing.
There’s just a hint of teriyaki flavor, probably due to the worcestershire and honey. And even with the two vinegars in the ingredients, there was little vinegar taste in the finished wings. That’s a plus in our opinion. Delicious.
Heat Level: – There’s very little heat – more spicy than hot – but it does grow a bit the more you eat. These are the wings you want to serve to kids or anyone that can’t take the heat. Mild.
Overall rating: – Delicious! High marks for the great flavor. We thoroughly enjoyed eating these wings, even though we prefer a hotter wing. But we certainly can’t ding the sauce for being too mild – it is called Sissy Sally after all. Highly recommended.
The big 12 ounce bottle should be enough for 2 – 4 dozen wing pieces (or 1 – 2 dozen whole wings) depending on how much sauce you like on them.
