Buffalo Baked Potatoes Recipe




  


Since we are all big potato fans here, I decided to try this on our baked potatoes! These were delicious!

Here's the recipe:
4 baking potatoes
Aluminium foil
Hot sauce of choice  I am sure you have a favorite?  We love them all! 
3 tablespoons of melted butter
garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 bottle of ranch or blue cheese dressing, or sour cream
Optional:  shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits, jalepeno's, olives.

First slice potatoes in a fan shaped slices without cutting through the potatoes. Place a small piece of foil big enough to wrap around each potato on a cutting board. Place potato on foil.  Brush the tops of each potato with melted butter.  Sprinkle with a little garlic powder. Pour  a generous amount of buffalo sauce over the potato, add a few tablespoons of dressing of choice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap tightly and bake in the oven for around 1 hour on 400 degree hot oven.
Note: (if your in a hurry you can microwave the potatoes for around 5 minutes uncut first) they will be cooked in around 1/2 hour less time.

 Options: You can add more dressing after they are cooked to  your taste. If using cheese and bacon, add  5 minutes before the potato is cooked, open foil add the cheese, rewrap for those last few minutes to melt the cheese.

  11. Good idea. I hadn't thought to make buffalo potatoes. I've got a question though...I always use Frank's Buffalo Sauce. This one says its a marinade, so does it have a thicker texture, more like a BBQ sauce? Or is it just their version of Buffalo Sauce??

  12. We love to bake potatoes and stuff/flavor them. This sounds like a really nice twist, almost a starchy buffalo dinner. I will have to give it a try Thanks

  24. Thanks so much Claudia for sharing this recipe! My family likes it hot we put hot sauce on everything from Fish to Mac & Cheese. Being born & raised in Idaho I thought I knew ALL the ways to make potatoes so I was SUPER excited to try this recipe. You defiantly didn’t disappoint me with this one we all loved it even my 5 year old! Although I have often used your recipes & had great success I was over the top thrilled with the results from this one. Thanks again for teaching this IDAHO girl new tricks with potatoes. MBC
