Good spuds Kate. I used 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (enough for my boys) and cooked them in the oven on a tray. Yum.

Wow - best wedges I've ever tasted! Such a great change from my usual chilli sprinkled spuds! I microwaved potato wedges for a few minutes before adding to the sauce to cut down grilling time & halved the butter which didn't seem to hinder the recipe at all. I also added some partially steamed pumpkin pieces that I needed to use up & used plain yoghurt instead of ranch dressing. I served these as a side to rec.#229929 Blackened Chicken. It was the tastiest meal we've had in ages! Nice & spicy. Thanks :)

Thanks for a great recipe! I left out the ranch dressing, used less hot sauce and cooked them in the oven for about 20 minutes. I used Recipe #27955 for the spice mix. Yum!
