Preparation

Remove tips from wings and reserve for stock if desired; separate at joint. In glass baking dish, whisk buttermilk, egg, salt and hot sauce; add wings, tossing to coat. Cover; refrigerate for 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Blue Cheese Dip: In bowl, mash blue cheese with buttermilk until fairly smooth. Stir in green onion and pepper. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

In large resealable bag, shake together cornmeal, flour, chili powder and cumin. Remove wings from buttermilk mixture, letting any excess drip off. In batches, shake in cornmeal mixture to coat; shake off any excess. Arrange on rack on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.

Roast in 400°F (200°C) oven, turning once, until crisp and juices run clear when wings are pierced, about 45 minutes. Serve with dip.
