Recipes: Buffalo Wild Wings – Copy Cat Sauces

Here are several copy cat recipes for Buffalo Wild Wing sauces. I have looked for these in the past but have not found anything close to recipes given on Meemo’s Kitchen blog. Like most people, I can’t leave good enough alone. I love the sauces but I don’t like all of the fat. So, I removed high calorie items to see if they made a difference. In my opinion the oil in the first three sauces is totally unnecessary. Make them both ways and you be the judge.

Included is Buffalo Wild Wings Medium, Spicy Garlic, Hot and Caribbean Jerk Sauces.

    Question here for you. I have seen these very same recipes posted all over the internet far and wide. Yours is the first that addresses the oil and fat problem. The one thing I do not understand then is the reason to keep the egg yolk. If I understand this correctly, the yolk and cornstarch is to create an emulsion to prevent the oil from separating. If we eliminate the oil, should we not eliminate the yolk?

    I guess my question is better asked, what is the purpose of the yolk after oil is eliminated?

    I hadn’t read about creating an emulsion. The reason I kept it was for the mouth feel. The egg helps to create a silky sauce and the corn starch helps with thickening the sauce. We have been happy with the results but we would have been happy if it varied even more but maintained the lower fat.
