you want fries with that?

After trying these, you may never be able to order potatoes at the drive-thru again:

Baked Potato Wedges
(from the Crisco website-with my own modifications...)
6 baking potatoes (I used russets)
1/3 c. vegetable oil
paprika (I used Smoky Sweet)
salt and pepper
grated Parmesan
Heat oven to 425, line a jelly roll pan with foil, spray with cooking spray.
Scrub potatoes well, cut lengthwise into 8 wedges. Combine the oil, paprika, salt and pepper (you be the judge on how much) in a zip top bag-add the potatoes. Close the bag securely and shake things up, until all of the potatoes are well coated. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet, skin side down, and sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake for 30-40 minutes until fork tender. I made this Seasoned Sour Cream to dunk them in (make it about 30 min. before serving to let the flavors blend):
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
This would be a nice addition to the grilling you may be doing this Memorial Day weekend. I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing three days-bring on summer!

  1. Mmmm... sound good! You know what else might be nice? A combo of russet and sweet potatoes. Pretty color and very good for you and extremely tasty. But, I bet you've already tried it. :o)


Thanks for stopping by!
