These wedges definitely had eye-appeal. That's why it was surprising that this dish was so... non-stellar. I think if I ever make these again, I'll probably leave out the sumac (strange tasting); increase the amount of chili, throw in the tiniest pinch of salt, and most certainly add a quick shake of cayenne pepper. -- posted Nov 13, 2005

I was a bit disappointed that these were a bit bland. I think the spices need to be doubled or even tripled for a fuller flavor. This is a good recipe to start has promise!

The idea behind these is good though I found that I needed to add some butter because after 30 minutes the wedges weren't browning and had an unappetizing egg whitey look about them. They turned out ok after adding the butter and tasted pretty good.
