Super Bowl Sunday means a lot of things to a lot of people. For some, it's the bittersweet finale to football season. For a lucky few, it’s a chance to watch your team punt, pass, and play-action its way to victory. For ad execs, it's that special day people don't actually hate your commercials.
But for almost everyone, non-sports fans included, Super Bowl Sunday is one of the great annual excuses for epic, marathon snacking. And what spread would be complete without some variation of the mighty chicken wing? To prep for game day, we’ve gathered a few recipes that not only fill the requisite wing slot in your snacking line-up, they add a little variety to the menu. (Making homemade wings might seem like borrowing trouble when they’re so very orderable—but remember, it’s Game Day. Why subject yourself to the mercy of delivery?) Healthier, fancier, sloppier—whatever your wing fancy, here’s a collection of our favorite revamped wings, just in time for kickoff. (Go Niners).
