Philly Crab Fries

Baked Crab Fries

While perusing around the world wide web for baseball stadium recipe inspiration, I came across “Crab Fries”.

If you’re not a seafood fan, don’t worry, there’s no actual crab in this recipe. Crab Fries were created by Chickie’s and Pete’s in Philadelphia when crab was not in season, as another way to use their Crab Seasoning.

Traditional Crab Fries in Philly are served with a cheese sauce. I served mine with the Cilantro Lime Dip I made for the Bratwurst Stuffed Jalapeños.

I really liked the slightly spicy crispy fries with the creamy fresh cilantro dip!

Buffalo Potato Wedges

Baked Buffalo Potato Crisps

In continuing with my Buffalo sauce addiction I am here to share with you another new recipe!

Buffalo Potato Wedges

This one came from the  simple fact that I had a large bag of potatoes and the buffalo sauce in the refrigerator was staring me  down, so I brought the two harmoniously together in this yummy new side!

Buffalo Potato Wedge Ingredients

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 2 lbs baking potatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp steak seasoning
  • 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
  • 3 tbsp butter

Start by pre-heating the oven to 400° and cutting the potatoes into wedges.

Next, add the potatoes to a mixing bowl and add the crushed garlic, olive oil, steak seasoning and buffalo sauce.

Toss everything to coat then arrange the potatoes in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet or in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Chop the butter into small cubes and place throughout the potatoes.

Now place the potatoes in the oven for 40-45 minutes. The potatoes are done when fork-tender and the sauce has reduced.

I’ve served these as a side dish with both Baked BBQ Buffalo Chicken  and Blue Cheese Stuffed Cheeseburgers!

They can also be served as an appetizer with toothpicks and blue cheese dressing for dipping.
