What To Make With Your Old Bay Hot Sauce

What To Make With Your Old Bay Hot Sauce

Old Bay is a versatile spice mix. You know this. We know this. But what you may not have considered is the versatility of Old Bay hot sauce! Any way you can use regular hot sauce, you can use this Maryland-style hot sauce, and there are a LOT of ways to use regular hot sauce! So, where to put this nectar of the gods to use? We've got a few ideas.

1. Make a wing sauce

A little butter is all you need to add to this delicious sauce to come up with a winning chicken wing! We like the simplicity of this recipe, though we might skip the garlic powder since the spices are already present in the Old Bay. Just melt a cup of butter, take it off the heat, and add a cup and a third of the Old Bay hot sauce. 

2. Add to eggs

Eggs and hot sauce, now that's a classic combo! Pour it out onto your scrambled eggs, or go a little fancier and make some spicy deviled eggs. (Just replace the hot sauce in the recipe with the Old Bay hot sauce, and boom!)

We're salivating already! Buy the 5 oz size here.

3. Make a spicy Thousand Island dressing

We love a spicy substitute! This Thousand Island dressing recipe calls for chili sauce, but we bet it would be even better if you used two tablespoons of Old Bay hot sauce instead. 

4. Add flavor to raw oysters

No recipe needed here! Old Bay is famous for how it perks up seafood, and Old Bay hot sauce will pair with raw oysters perfectly. Just dollop it on.

Yeah, you're gonna want this much! Buy the 64 oz size here.

5. Enjoy a spicy cocktail

There are TONS of cocktail recipes that call for hot sauce, but we're in love with the summery vibes of this pineapple chili margarita. Spicy, tangy, sour...yep, we're a fan. (And we bet it will taste even better out of some Route One glassware!)

6. Whip up a spicy homemade hummus

Sure, you could just buy spicy hummus, but when you make it yourself, you'll ensure you're getting that tasty Old Bay flavor in there! Snacks just taste better when you've put love and care into them, right? Here's the recipe.
