Oven Potato Wedges with Comeback Sauce

I have seen a lot of recipes lately for Comeback Sauce. It is a condiment found mostly in the southern USA. They use it as a dip or salad dressing.

It sounded amazing so I thought I would give it a try.

I am addicted to fries, skinny or fat, fried or baked; if it’s a fry I will eat it.
This comeback Sauce is crazy good on fries!

The oven potato wedges are simple and delicious and dipped in the sauce, you just can’t go wrong.

What you need,

For the Comeback Sauce,

1 cup Mayo
¼ cup ketchup
¼ cup Chili Sauce (I like Heinz)
1 tbsp. yellow mustard (you could use Dijon if you like)
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
¼ tsp. tobacco
The juice of 1 lemon
(If you want to make it into a salad dressing use up to ¼ cup of olive oil to thin it out)

Whisk together all the ingredients until well combined. Cover and chill for at least 6 hours, overnight is better.

Keep extra sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 2 weeks.

For the potato wedges,

2 large russet potatoes
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. seasoning salt
½ tsp. fresh ground black pepper
½ tsp. garlic powder

Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Pour about 1 tablespoon of olive oil on a sheet pan and rub to coat the whole pan.

Cut each potato in half lengthwise, slice each half in half. If the potatoes are huge you may need to cut the halves into half again to create ¼ inch thick wedges.

In a large bowl toss the wedges with the second tablespoon of olive oil. Season the potatoes with the seasoning salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Lay the wedges in a single layer on the prepared pan.
Bake the wedges for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are brown and crisp on the one side. Flip the wedges over and bake another 15 minutes until fork tender.

You may need to turn your oven down to 350 after about 5 minutes on the second side. You want the potatoes to get brown and crisp but you want them to cook through before burning.
Just gauge your oven.

Serve right away with the Comeback Sauce.

What can I say… look at these beauties.
The sauce is spicy and sweet, AH-MAZING!

We had BBQ’d Burgers as well and I slapped some of this sauce on my burger, it was to die for!

It would be a great salad dressing for a wedge salad or a hearty spinach salad.

Loved it!
