I'm not a "measurer", so I used to bring all my stuff to someone's house to make these by request to show them how to make them. I FINALLY wrote it down! DH said they are right on, but he liked a bit more salt. So that part is up to you. I liked them as is...here is my "infamous", lol, recipe. Glad I finally actually wrote it down, and happy to share with you all! ENJOY!!! Remember, they are really good hot, but....omg...they are sooooo addictive warm/room temp.!!!! They need NO dipping sauce whatsoever! Just plain ol' good!
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 3 tablespoons butter, cut up
- 1⁄4 teaspoon seasoning salt, a little bit more if desired
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄4 teaspoon thyme
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄8 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
- 3 large red potatoes (russet-size)
- In medium-sized micro-safe bowl, combine above ingredients except potatoes.
- Nuke for about 1-2 minutes, or until butter is melted.
- Stir well, scraping bottom.
- Cut potatoes into wedges, cutting each into eighths.
- Toss very well into bowl of butter mixture. Make sure you scrape bottom of bowl to get all the good stuff incorporated and potatoes coated.
- If bowl is shallow, bake in that, or pour into glass pie plate or appropriate-sized pan.
- Start off with potatoes standing up, skin side down, pouring any butter mixture leftover, over the top of them, coating. After about 10 minutes, start basting and stirring potatoes as needed.
- Bake in 400º oven for a total of about 40-45 minutes, or til very tender. Trick of these is though, is to have them DONE about 20 minutes before the rest of the dinner is done. They are KILLER about room temperature!
- I used to call them “snitch 5”, because the leftovers were the BEST, guests cannot resist stealing them out of the pan, and about 5 would fit in the palm of their hands! ENJOY!
- *The red potatoes I use are about the same size as russets. Only maybe just a tad smaller, so if yours are really small, you may want to even double the amount of potatoes.
I was going to make this potato recipe for dinner and as the day progressed I got lazy so I decided to dump it all in a plastic bag, shake to coat and roast. The lazy part is that I also added chunks of onion, sweet pepper and a few brussel sprouts. The seasoning was great on the potatoes but really great on the other veggies! Thanks.
I'm giving these 4 instead of 5 stars because they are very good, but they are not as amazing as the ones they serve at a local chinese buffet. Very close, but the seasonings are a little different. Easy to put together.
These were excellent.. Just the right amount all the way around. Thanks
