The best homemade buffalo sauce made with Frank's Hot Sauce, butter, and spices!
For the buffalo sauce, quarter the cold stick of butter lengthwise. Make eight cuts across so that the butter is cut into tiny cubes. Transfer to the refrigerator until ready to use. Add Frank's hot sauce, onion powder, Kosher salt, and garlic powder to a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir and allow to come to a simmer.
Reduce the heat to low. Begin adding in the butter 2-3 cubes at a time, whisking constantly. Once the butter has melted into the sauce, add another 2-3 cubes, and repeat until all of the butter has been incorporated. Do not rush this process.
Once all of the butter has been added, remove the sauce from the heat and set aside until ready to use. Makes about 1 1/2 cup of sauce.
