I like most anything with the flavor of Buffalo hot sauce on it...wings, shrimp, chicken tenders, so why not fries? I thought it might be a good idea so I came up with this recipe for them. It worked well. These are not burn your mouth up hot, but they are pretty spicy! Here is what you will need:
3-4 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut in long sticks or wedges
3 Tbs. butter, melted
1/2 cup Buffalo hot sauce (I used Texas Pete)
1 Tbs. dry Ranch dressing mix
Cajun seasoning (I used Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning)
blue cheese dressing
I a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, hot sauce, and dry Ranch dressing mix until combined. Place the potato wedges in the bowl and toss to coat all sides well. Let them sit for a bit to absorb the sauce a little.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray well with nonstick spray or brush with oil. Place the potato wedges on the baking sheet in a single layer leaving room between the pieces so they cook well. Sprinkle lightly with the Cajun seasoning, if you want to kick them up. It has red pepper in it, so go easy with it. If you want a milder flavor just sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place in a 425 degree oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn each fry and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes or until done.
Place on a serving plate and serve with ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing for dipping!
