A healthier option than french fries. Great with grilled cheese, hot dogs, or hamburgers. Dip into ketchup or spicy ranch dressing.

A good recipe for oven roasted potatoes. Not sure what makes these "Cajun" - given the recipe s title I would have expected to see some Cajun seasoning befitting of its name. Watch roasting time - it's not carved in stone; so dependent on size and thickness of potatoes. Mine needed far less time! Read More

this menu was ok, but i tweaked it a bit by first adding the potatoes to boiling water for 2 minutes then shocking them in old water, I also then added some oregano, to the spices. the potatoes came out crispy outside and soft and yummy inside. Read More

These are nice simple potato wedge. I wanted to ensure a good crisp so I cut my wedges a bit thinner and need MUCH less baking time (they were a tad dark brown at 20 min when I went to flip). No error in time just a heads up as all potatoes/cuts will be different so keep an eye on them the first time you make them. I followed the recipe though I used jarred minced garlic (what I had) and eliminated the black pepper per personal preference. Mr. LTH ate these as is and I dipped them in a mixture of mayo/ketchup/yellow mustard along side our burgers. Thanks for the recipe KBT24! Read More

I am a beginner in terms of cooking but my husband and son liked the wedges a lot it's why I think I need to leave a positive comment. I did modified the recipe a little bit because I didn't have fresh garlic and onion powder I used garlic salt instead. Before turning over I baked for 20 mins and after that 15 mins. The wedges came out very crispy outside and it tasted very good. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I use all the spices as listed in this recipe but cook the wedges like the Baked Rosa Maria fries recipe (cook in the microwave for a few minutes first and then bake in the oven for about 20 minutes). They seem to cook much better than just baking in the oven as well as more quickly. Read More

I have made these a couple times and I added about 1Tbsp. of Cajun seasoning. My husband loves them and they're definitely healthier than frying. Read More

Yummy! I had to give this one a 4 because I was looking for spicy (Cajun) and the base recipe didn't contain any zip. I halved the recipe because it was just me and it was too much to eat even though it was delicious. After tossing the potatoes in olive oil I added the full tsp of garlic (yay garlic) all the seasonings except the onion powder which I didn't have. I forgot the pepper (oops) but added 1/8 tsp of Cayenne Powder - which was plenty and I like spice. The potatoes definitely needed a dipping sauce - next time I might try a couple of the other reviewers' suggestions like microwaving or boiling the slices first in an attempt to retain some more moisture. Still yum! Will keep this in my recipe box. Read More

I made the wedges according to recipe then added cayenne pepper and red pepper; also squeezed a whole fresh lime over the bowl the let it marinade for 30 minutes. Placed them in the oven for 20 minutes then flipped them and drizzled them with half the remaing marinade. Into the oven for another 20 minutes. They turned out bomb! With just the right kick of heat. I almost burnt them. Then I made ketchup and siracha mayo sauce on the side. I will definitely be making these again. Read More

I also boiled these for about 10 minutes before baking them which I think reduced the cooking time. These were delicious! Read More
