With just a kick of spice and a LOT of garlic, these Garlic Peri-Peri Baked Wings taste like garlic wings from my favorite wing joint only healthier!
We love garlic! It goes in almost every meal in some shape or form. What I don’t love about garlic is sometimes biting into a chunk of it when I want a smooth and creamy sauce or dish.
In our house there’s two options; diced or minced. I’ve tried pressing it with salt into a paste. Yeah, I suck at that. I’ve tried a few other garlic presses. They’re just a pain to clean. Seriously.
I mean, who wants to dig around getting that little piece that’s wedged in the hinges? There’s not even a cleaning tool that can get that out. So, what are you left with? Using a fingernail or a steak knife. That’s so not kitchen safe.
Enter the Dreamfarm Garject. Their video is mesmerizing. I’ve watched is several times. It is true to that video.
I put a whole head of unpeeled garlic in the Garject. It pressed the delicious garlic out of the skins. With a flip of the head, it scraped off the press and put the garlic in my bowl.
Then, with the press of the button, the skin was ejected out of the press. It cracks me up. Like the skin is sitting on a little ejector seat and pressing the button releases the seat and the skin just goes flying. I had such a kick flipping that skin out I had to show the hubs. He thought I was off my rocker. It’s the little things that muse me.
When I signed on to participate in this campaign, I thought bread soup, garlic soup, aioli, baked bread or rolls; I went around and around Pinterest trying to figure out what I wanted to make. But then I landed on wings.
I planned on sharing a recipe I had been working on and thought, “That’s what it really needs! It needs a ton of garlic to make these wings super delicious!!” So, I changed up my recipe, added a head and a half of pressed garlic to the wings, and baked the most delicious wings!
They reminded me of some we ordered one time at our local Buffalo wing joint. The one that has like 20 different sauces? Yeah. That day we had like atomic wings (that took a solid week to recover from) and some garlic wings that I devoured they were so good.
And you’ll do just that with these wings. Just look at how delicious these wings are!! The Peri-Peri sauce and butter combine to make a rich and spicy power duo. The garlic and herb Old Bay seasoning and the garlic from Melissa’s produce are a double dose of delicious garlic flavor.
Now, the hubs isn’t a fan of Old Bay. I love the stuff and think that the garlic and herb flavor isn’t as powerful as he things it is. But then again, I’ve pretty much grown up with it on almost all seafood that I can’t get enough of it. So, if you’re not the fan of Old Bay like I am, you can omit it or swap out some garlic powder for the Old Bay.
Yup. I’m drooling! Aren’t you drooling?? Just imagine that garlicky, spicy sauce coating those crispy, baked wings. There’s flecks of the Old Bay seasoning and some pieces of the delicious garlic. I just need a cold brew and I’m all set!! Who needs to go to a wing joint for delicious wings? Just make these!
And with the help from the Dreamfarm Garject you can easily make restaurant quality wings at home that your family will love!
