Tabasco Bacon Cheddar Wings

Course: Appetizer, Snack
Cuisine: American
Author: Gaby


  • 2 pounds chicken wings split at the joint, wingtips removed and discarded
  • 4-6 strips of bacon
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 10-15 dashes Tabasco
  • Sliced scallions for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Place the strips of bacon on a metal rack on top of a baking sheet and pop them into the oven for about 15 minutes until crispy. Remove the bacon and the metal rack from the baking sheet and set aside.
  • Place the chicken wings onto the baking sheet and mix with the bacon drippings. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the chicken wings are fully cooked and the skin is crispy.
  • Break the bacon into pieces and toss them together with the cheddar and the Tabasco.
  • Once the wings are fully cooked, remove the baking sheet from the oven and top with the bacon cheddar Tabasco mixture. Place the baking sheet back into the oven and let the cheese melt for about 3 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with a sprinkle of scallions as a garnish.
  • Serve with extra Tabasco for anyone who wants a little more heat.
