Potato Wedges with Cajun Spices


Friday night fast food challenge time again!

Dipped in a little sour cream with chives or sweet chilli sauce these wedges are a huge hit with the boys.

Using minimal oil and lots of flavour these are easy to make and pack a punch with the Cajun spice mix.

Serves 5-6


30mls vegetable/sunflower oil

1 tablespoon Cajun spice mix

750-800g potatoes


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Centigrade.

Line two baking sheets with baking parchment.

In a large bowl, combine the oil and Cajun spice mix. The recipe for the mix is in the blog.

Cut the potatoes in half length wise and then into long fairly skinny wedges.

Add the wedges to the spiced oil and mix really well.

Tip the wedges onto the two prepared trays, I try to have them all facing in the same direction to begin with so I know if they have been turned or not.

Pop in the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes, turning regularly.

Serve with sweet chilli sauce and sour cream.

  1. Sweet potatoes with a tiny bit of brown sugar, salt, red pepper flakes or cayenne, cinnamon, and ginger (any/all of the above) also really works well with this type of preparation. If you parboil the potatoes whole for about 10 minutes first, you can reduce the baking time quite a bit, too. Now I want potatoes for dinner. 🙂
