How to make Crispy Buffalo Potato Wedges

These potatoes are so simple to make. If you can cut potatoes with a knife and brush on the seasoning, you are good to go!

  1. To get started, preheat the oven to 425 F. Wash and dry the potatoes with paper towel. You will be amazed at how much dirt can still be on potatoes even after a good washing. Then, using a sharp knife, cut each potato in half lengthwise, and then cut each half into 4 wedges. This may take a little muscle if the potatoes are large.
  2. Now, spread the wedges out on a large greased or sprayed sheet pan in a single layer. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Toss to coat the potatoes with the oil and salt. Use your hands (olive oil is great for the skin) or if you are the neat and tidy type, use a spatula.
  3. Bake in the 425 Degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and crisp. If your wedges are really large, it may take longer.  Remove the pan from the oven. Use a brush to lightly coat each wedge with Wing Sauce. Place the pan back in the oven for 3 minutes or until the Wing Sauce coating has dried a little bit.  Remove the pan  from the oven and serve with a little bowl of dipping sauce. Enjoy!

This  recipe doesn’t call for frying so it is still  healthy, right?   Did you know that  potatoes are actually good for you?….they are a very good source of vitamin B6  and 1 serving gives you about 25% of the Vitamin C you need every day!
