Homemade buffalo sauce is simple to make and great for many recipes to come! Buffalo sauce is combination of bottled hot sauce and a fat, and in this case butter, to create a delicious creamy sauce you are going to love. The butter will balance out the spice, and along with the vinegar and worcestershire sauce it creates a unique taste different from just hot sauce. It is creamy and delicious.

There are several variations of buffalo sauce out there. Some only use the hot sauce and butter. I prefer this homemade recipe that rounds out the flavors better and creates a beautiful rich deep sauce.
Homemade buffalo sauce may have started out as a wing sauce, but it is for so much more than that. Try it with any recipe that calls for buffalo sauce, like Buffalo Cauliflower or Grilled Honey Buffalo Wings. This rich creamy sauce can go with so many things, these are just a few to get your creative juices flowing. There are so many ways you can use this divine buffalo sauce.
This sauce only gets better with time. I like making it in small batches but making a large batch is just as good. It will keep. Keep in a tightly sealed container, I like to use a jar with a screw top lid. Keep in the fridge for up to a month. Shake well before each use. If you want to warm it up, only take out what you will need and warm up in the microwave.
There really is nothing better than making your own sauces, dressings and spreads. You know exactly what goes in them. You can customize them to your liking. Homemade is always better than store bought. It only takes a few minutes to create your favorites and you won’t regret it. Making homemade anything always is cheaper than buying as well. So in a nutshell it’s healthier, cheaper, and tastier. I think it’s time to give them a try. Start with these tried and true favorites.
