Roasted Potatoes Tossed in Buffalo Sauce

I found this recipe for Buffalo Potato Wedges in an old cookbook and thought it sounded interesting. Kind of like hot wings but with potatoes. These potatoes are a new favorite at our house. We have been making these weekly and just can’t get enough of them. I always have the ingredients on hand to whip up a batch. They are super simple to make and taste great! Such a delicious change to our usual baked potato or potato casserole.

How to Roast Potato Wedges

These roasted potatoes are super easy to make. Start by washing the potatoes and cutting them into bite-sized cubes. Toss the potatoes in some oil and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet or baking dish. Pop the pan in the oven and cook until the potatoes are soft. Finally, ttoss the potatoes in hot sauce and butter and serve.

I used Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. You can use the regular hot sauce or the wing sauce. Either will be just fine. Another good brand of hot sauce is Crystals.

What to Serve with Buffalo Potato Wedges

We topped the potato wedges with some parsley, cheddar cheese, and ranch dressing. They are the perfect side dish for grilled chicken, pork, or burgers. Heck, these are good just as an appetizer! Buffalo potatoes topped with cheese, ranch, and bacon? O-M-YUM! Perfect for watching football this Fall.

Here are a few of our favorite main dishes from the blog that go great with these yummy potatoes:
