Once you get the simple technique to perfect roasted potato wedges down, the sky is the limit! Season the potatoes any way you like!


  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (preferably salt-free)
  • 1 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 pounds medium waxy potatoes such as Yukon Gold or Red Bliss
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line a 15 x 10-inch rimmed baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil.  Set aside.

Combine garlic powder, onion powder, Cajun seasoning, seasoned salt and black pepper in a small bowl.

Scrub the potatoes and blot dry.  Cut into even-sized wedges (6-8 per potato).

Place in a bowl and drizzle with oil.  Sprinkle with seasoning blend and toss well to coat.

Spread out on a baking sheet, making sure each potato wedge has a cut side touching the non-stick aluminum foil.

Roast for 25-30 minutes.  Flip each potato so the other cut side is touching the non-stick aluminum foil.  Roast an additional 25-30 minutes.


Recipe Notes

FREEZER-FRIENDLY:  Cool potatoes thoroughly then place on a nonstick baking sheet.  Place in the freezer for 1 hour.  When frozen, place in freezer zipper-top bags and seal tightly.  When ready to enjoy, take what you need from the bag and place on a sheet pan and reheat in the oven at 375 degrees.
