Can I Pre-Bake & Reheat Baked Buffalo Wings?

Good Questions

Q: We're having a Super Bowl party with about 12 people, and our tiny Manhattan kitchen has a miniature oven. In past years it hasn't been much of a problem but this year we're making baked buffalo wings, a tried and true recipe.

However, the wings are supposed to bake for 45 minutes and we're afraid to use both racks of our oven as we think the bottom tray would burn.

Is there a way to pre-bake the wings a few hours ahead of time so that they only need to go for maybe 20 minutes the second time around while still maintaining their deliciousness and crunchiness?

Sent by SethEditor: Mmmmm baked buffalo wings! We haven't made them in a long time and can't speak to this question directly, but we think that yes, there must be some way to make them ahead and reheat them.

Readers? Any advice?
