Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/8 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/8 cup dark brown sugar
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 4 medium Russet Potatoes
  • Cooking spray
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 12 (6-inch) wood skewers, pre-soaked
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 4 ounces bleu cheese crumbles

For the Cinderella Sauce (optional)

  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup small blue cheese crumbles
  • 1/8 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed

Preparation

For the Spud Sticks

  • 1 In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine butter, oil, hot sauce, honey, vinegar, brown sugar, and garlic.
  • 2 Bring mixture to a simmer then reduce heat to low, stirring occasionally until thickened, about 7-10 minutes. Meanwhile, slice potatoes into 1-inch thick pieces then place into a 2-quart glass dish with 1/2 cup water.
  • 3 Cover and microwave on high just until potatoes begin to get tender, about 7 minutes. Drain water, and spread potatoes across a jelly roll pan to steam dry.
  • 4 Using skewers, thread potato pieces, dividing evenly among sticks. Using cooking spray, generously coat potatoes, then season with pepper, to taste.
  • 5 Heat grill to 450 degrees then places kabobs on lightly oiled grates. Grill until golden and slightly charred, about 4-5 minutes per side.
  • 6 Remove from heat and drizzle with glaze then sprinkle with celery and blue cheese. Serve immediately with dipping sauce, if desired.
