    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 C).
    2. 2
      Wash the potatoes.
    3. 3
      Cut in half lengthwise, then cut each piece in half again lengthwise, leaving you with eight wedges per potato.
    4. 4
      You can either leave them this thickness, or cut each wedge in half crossways, giving you 16 triangles per potato.
    5. 5
      Put in a big bowl and rinse with water to wash the starch off.
    6. 6
      Drain as much water as you can from the potatoes, then add in the olive oil.
    7. 7
      Stir to coat.
    8. 8
      Mix the spices together, then sprinkle over the oiled potatoes.
    9. 9
      Stir again until all the potatoes are coated evenly.
    10. 10
      Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet (I line mine with aluminium foil to help with clean up).
    11. 11
      Grind over some black pepper and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes.
    12. 12
      Halfway through the baking, use a spatula to turn the potatoes over.

      Excellent, crisp, delicious, but a tad too fiery. Next time I'll cut the amount of cayenne in half. I also added about a tsp. of smoked paprika.

      These potatoes were easy to make and delicious....a definite repeater. I used only half the amount of cayenne and some family members thought they were still a bit too hot so I'll reduce it even further next time (and maybe add some chili powder as suggested by another reviewer). I will also add salt. I loved that the potatoes were not swimming in oil and took less time than some other recipes. Thank you, Sackville!

      These were the best roast potatoes we have had in a long time!! Delicious and just enough heat to make them interesting and I only used half the cayenne called for, worked for us! Loved the cumin and oregano, I cooked them around a pork loin roast, on the rack, which make them nice and crisp. YUM!! Thanks for sharing.
