These came out really well. My only changes were to use olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and I tossed the wedges in a plastic bag with the oil seasonings instead of brushing the wedges. Very simple and tasty recipe!
I made these today for Christmas to go with some ham sandwiches and it was a nice side dish. I did end up putting them back in the oven at 425 for about 30 minutes to get them more crispy. I would suggest cutting them pretty small if you want them crunchy on the outside. I think Cajun spice would work well on these too!
This recipe is so simple and so delicious! I'm on an elimination diet so I had to cut out the cheese and garlic powder but even without them these wedges are killer. I've tried baking them at a few different temperature/time combinations and I got the best results with 50 minutes at 400?F - nice and crisp on the outside but soft on the inside. Perfection!
seasonings were good, but overall the potatoes weren't raveable to me. They were easy yes, but I like crispiness & I didn't get any crunch at all with these.
On second try, I cut them thinner and was more happy with the result
This was a easy side to throw together. Everyone enjoyed them. I made some with the Parmesan cheese & some without (for the people who can't eat dairy). Both were very tasty! I would make these again. Thanks for the recipe :)
Awesome! Even my picky eater who barely eats fries from fast food was looking for more! I'm making more tonight! Love it!
I have similar versions of this recipe in two 'homegrown' charity cookbooks. The version I like calls for setting the potatoes wedges on paper toweling for half an hour to remove the moisture. Then place them in a plastic bag and toss with a splash of oil; just enough to coat. I don't like them dripping and you can always add more if needed. Then sprinkle the spices, pre-mixed with parmesan, into the bag and shake to coat. The spices and the parmesan can be adjusted or changed to suit your tastes or to complement your meal. Place skin down on a baking sheet and bake 45 minutes at 375 degrees.
Made these the other day and they came out very good - perfectly cooked. I would have liked a little more spice though. Thanks for a good recipe!
Update 10/3/11 - This recipe worked out good with http://www.food.com/recipe/meatloaf-yes-virginia-there-is-a-great-meatloaf-54257 because I was able to prep the potato wedges and get them in the oven within the first 15 minutes so that it could cook at 350F for the remaining hour with the meatloaf!
Not sure what happened, but these didn't work for us. Too greasy for our tastes. Perhaps I did something wrong, but I'm an exp'd cook, and this is not at all complicated. Bummer!
These were so good! Rather than brushing each wedge with the oil mixture, I just tossed it all together in a large bowl and it seemed to work fine. I'll be making this often -- thanks for posting!
