    LOVE this recipe! Tried it many years ago and use to make them quite often. Lost my recipe a few years back, so I'm very happy to see this again! Will be making them tonight. Just be sure to use the Simply Potatos ( I know they are hard to come by)

    I thought this was okay but not great. I could not find the Simply Potatoes Wedges so I just bought fresh red skins and cut them up myself.
