How Now Browned Cow
Apparently I missed "National French Fry Day" yesterday. Today's choice was "National Nude Day" but after "National French Fry Day" NO ONE wants to be caught in the nude after eating the bag of Five Guys Fries.
So I'm just going to be a day late on the fries for lack of time for anything else on my "Monday".
Loaded Potato wedges with Sciracha dipping sauce. A nice little side dish for your "browned cow"..
makes 4 side dish servings
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Sriracha (thai chili sauce, also known as Rooster Sauce)
2 large potatoes
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup cheddar (I used a mix of white and smoked cheddar)
2-3 Tablespoons diced bacon
1 green onion (green portion only) chopped.
Sriracha Dipping Sauce
1 cup sour cream
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons sriracha, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut potatoes into wedges (extra thick steak fry sized). Whisk olive oil and Sriracha together in a small bowl. Pour over potatoes in a bowl and toss to coat. Add spices and toss again. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Roast in oven for 15 minutes. Stir and flip potatoes with a spatula (they will be sizzling) and roast another 10-20 minutes (varies based on size of potato but remove from oven when tender when poked with a fork and golden brown, watching closely the last couple of minutes to avoid burning).
While potatoes are cooking, whisk dipping sauce ingredients together in a small bowl,
Remove potatoes from oven, sprinkle with smoked cheddar, bacon, and green onion and serve with Sriracha dipping sauce.
