This is another quick recipe that tastes amazing, crisp and perfectly seasoned with my and other spices, they will be a big hit when you serve them, they will disappear in no time.

Baking them in the oven cuts down on calories, you get to enjoy them without the guilt. The thick wedges are hearty and satisfying. These potato wedges are tasty served alone with your favorite ketchup, sauce or dip. 

I love the fact that the potato skin doesn't have to be removed but the skin can be enjoyed plus there are so many nutritional benefits.

    I just put these into the oven. Please forgive me but I made your recipe for cajun seasoning and used that, but my question is, do I add all the spices listed besides the seasoning mix? I didn’t just so you know…

    The first time I made these I followed the recipe but it was too spicy for my teens that are not a fan of spicy food. The next time I toned down the spices and they loved it. I am making these for a soccer banquet coming up with 100+ parents/kids in attendance! I have 2 kids that are vegan and one that is not so finding recipes to feed a mixed crowd is crucial and I just love these simple and healthy wedges!

      Sarah, that’s so cool, I’m so tickled that you love it enough to serve it at the upcoming soccer banquet and I hope everyone will love them too. Yes I’m so guilty of adding too much cayenne pepper at times. All the best and hope you have lots of fun!
