Chef Justin Warner

Justin Warner, host of "Rebel Eats" on Food Network, spread his creative wings for this recipe. "I'm a big fan of Falcon and all that he represents," Warner says. "Also, Anthony Mackie owns a bar down the street from my restaurant, Do or Dine. You should really check it out, it's called NoBar. As I was going through all of the avian-edibles in my mind, I latched on to wings, as they are both representative of the character and are probably in the top slot on Family Feud's 'Super Bowl Food' category. As Falcon hails from Harlem, I decided to waffle up the exterior of the wing. It gives it more surface area, which makes it ideal for sauce-dunking, but since the batter is primarily hot sauce, it leaves the fingers far less messy than the average wing."

Falcon's Redwings by Justin Warner

Serves 4 wing segments to 4 people

8 whole wings - this is the "drumette" and the "midsection" still attached
2 whole eggs, beaten
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup mik
3/4 cup sriracha
1 1/2 cups all purpouse flour
1 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder
3 tsp salt plus more for seasoning
black pepper for seasoning
corn starch, for dredging, about 1/2 cup
maple syrup, for drizzling
cooking spray

In a steamer or in a colander set over boiling water (so that the colander does not touch the water) steam the wings until thoroughly cooked, about 15 minutes. 

Preheat a waffle iron to the highest setting.

Preheat an oven to 250.

Meanwhile, combine the eggs, butter, milk and sriracha in a mixing bowl. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in another bowl.  

Season the wings with salt and pepper. Allow to cool. Once the wings are cool, dredge in corn starch.  

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry. Don't overwhisk. It should be a little gummy--stiffer than your average waffle batter.

Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray. Place two of the wings with the drum side opposite the hinge on to the waffle iron.  

Spoon the waffle batter on top and close the waffle iron until the waffle iron tells you it's done. Ignore it. Wait one more minute. Transfer the wings to a baking sheet and place in the oven.

Repeat the process with the remaining wings.

Drizzle with maple syrup and devour while thinking about Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and how freaking awesome it's going to be to see Falcon soaring through the skies.
