Very tasty alternative to fries or baked potatoes. My 5 year old who hates potatoes, but eats these in a flash. Play around with the spices in place of seasoning salt (garlic powder, cayenne, etc.)

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 medium potatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. 2 Place the potato wedges in a plastic bag, or bowl with a lid. Add oil, and toss to coat. Season the potatoes with seasoning salt, paprika, chili powder, and pepper, and add the sesame seeds. Replace lid or close bag, and shake to coat evenly. Spread the potato wedges out in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. 3 Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes or so, until the potatoes are tender and golden.

  1. These were delish! Hubby especially loved them. I used olive oil and a lot more sesame seeds, then I turned the oven to broil for the last few minutes to brown the seeds. Great comfort food and so easy--a definite keeper!
  2. I added some garlic and onion powder to these and they were fantastic! I also used a little more salt than called for and cut the potatoas into smaller pieces.
  3. I used sweet potatoes and added 3/4 teaspoon of garlic powder and found them quite flavorful. I would add even more sesame seeds next time...made them really special.
  4. This recipe is it just as it says...but put your own kind of spices on. I made them and when the steak was cooking put them in a glass dish and added more s & p...warmed them up again and they were really tasty...nice & fluffy on the inside just a slight crisp on - Read more ...
  5. Really good and simple to make! Tossed them in olive oil minced garlic and chives after they were done roasting. Tasty!
  6. These were just OK. I also used olive oil as suggested by others. I added all of the other spices the recipe called for. I even used more than the recipe said and they were still bland. It seems that all those spices should have made for more flavor. I may try again with even - Read more ...
  7. These were good. Added an envelope of dry onion soup mix, omitted sesame seeds. Cut these a bit smaller than wedges. Went well with our barbecue ribs. Thanks.
  8. My husband loved these -- but I did make some changes. I used olive oil instead of canola and I didn't have any sesame seeds so I used a dash of lemon juice instead.
  9. Pretty good. Felt like I had to use alot of seasoning to get a good taste. Not good reheated the next day!
