    I made these with fingerlings potatoes and crushed garlic.they turned out fantastic. I love to use my microwave for cooking. Now I have to look for Hungarian paprika; I have the regular one.I will be making these again. Thanks for posting. Rita

    This really works! I used Hungarian smoked paprika instead of sweet and it really gave the potatoes a great flavor. I wanted french fries to go with the burgers I had made, but didn't want to heat up the kitchen. These potato wedges were the perfect answer. Thank you!

    These were absolutely unbelievable! I used a bowl of olive oil, mixed herbs, mild curry powder, salt and pepper. Then once they were cooked i topped them with grated cheddar cheese. Great for a 1am snack!

    Very easy to make. Next time I will probably add more of the italian seasoning mix and maybe some tabasco for a little kick. Be sure to cut your potatoes in the same size for equal cooking.


    Made these for my husband tonite! Sometimes I can't find the time to bake his potatoes in the oven so this recipe will come in handy! I used one potato (peeled it) but kept the seasoning amts the same. I used 1/4 + 1/8 tsp garlic powder instead of the granules, and used garlic salt for the regular salt. I cut them into "strips" so they'd resembles fries & forgot to use the parmesan! Will remember for next time. I cooked mine for about 6 min. They weren't crispy like my man likes them, but they were yummy dipped in ketchup & went very well with his barbecued chicken sandwich :-). Thanks so much for sharing!
