Olive Oil (placed in a spray bottle)
1/4 Tablespoon Of Salt
Cayenne Pepper (substitute: Tabasco Sauce or Chilli Flakes)
1/3 Cup Of Sour Cream
1/2 Teaspoon Of Horseradish (substitute: Grated Ginger)
Start by piercing the potato and putting it on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave it under high temperature until it is almost tender. Cut the potato into 8 wedges. You must bake these wedges by preparing a baking sheet coated with oil spray. Spray some of the olive oil to the wedges as well. Drizzle the salt and cayenne pepper. Bake the potatoes for 20 to 25 minutes or until it reaches the “golden brown” state.
The dip is made by mixing the sour cream, horseradish, and diced bacon. Serve this on the side along with the potato wedges.
