This Homemade Buffalo Sauce is only 6 ingredients and can be used in so many ways! Skip the bottled stuff and make your own buffalo sauce for less money and time!
I’m a condiment girl all the way. Mayonnaise, honey mustard, barbecue sauce… I love them all and have a hard time eating many foods without a condiment.
But buffalo sauce is top of the charts for our household. There are just so many uses for it and we never seem to grow tired of that spicy kick.
We bought jarred buffalo sauce for years, but once I realized how easy it was to make, I was hooked. It’s only a few ingredients and a couple minutes and you can have a homemade buffalo sauce.
One of the best parts of making it yourself is that you can control the heat. We have two weaklings in this house and two people that like it extra hot. I can just divide the recipe into two portions and add a little more kick to theirs while still enjoying my portion!
Homemade Buffalo Sauce Recipe
- hot sauce
- lemon juice
- garlic powder
Almost all of those things are probably pantry staples at most households anyways. With the exception of maybe hot sauce, although that’s definitely a staple around here.
All you have to do for buffalo sauce is combine those ingredients in a small saucepan and heat through until hot.
After the butter melts, I probably let it heat for another 3 minutes or so. I just use a whisk to stir it every 30 seconds or so.
Then remove from heat and you can use it right away or cool it and refrigerate it for later. I keep it in a small mason jar in the fridge. It will last for about 2 weeks or so, but it never makes it that long for us since we’re usually making it for a specific purpose.
