“I make these potato wedges all the time because my husband won’t eat anything fried,” writes Deborah Lacher of Deerfield, Ohio. “I couldn’t find the dip I wanted in the grocery store, so I made my own.”
My wife was a great cook and I loved to help her. She served this dip with crackers, pretzels or fresh fruit at our family get-togethers, especially during the holidays.

Nothing tastes better with lasagna than warm bread. This recipe makes just enough for my husband, Dan, and me, but it can be easily doubled to feed a crowd. It has a nice garlic flavor.—Cookie Curci-Wright, San Jose, California
