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
pinch cayenne
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.


  1. That new job you were talking about.
    Does it involve a kitchen?

  2. thanks for sharing! Those potatoes look incredible! My dad is a sriracha nut! I've bookmarked this to try in the fall (gotta wait until the temperatures go down a bit before using the oven!).

  3. Gotta add that one to the recipe list! :-)

  4. YUM!
    (Re: French fries - I vote for four different kinds: the (bottomless) steak fries @ Red Robin, the crinkle fries @ Culver's, the shoestring fries @ Freddy's, and #1,(by a slight margin) the insanely addictive fries @ Thirsty Lion Pub!)


  5. Cooked those tonight. Man! They were good. I'm not usually a pedant, but it took me a long time to search through the grocery store for " with smoked cheddar bacon ". I'm drooling for the smoked cheddar bacon. instead of smoked cheddar, bacon and...
    It was a great meal though! Can't imagine how much better it would have been with "smoked cheddar bacon".
