Crispy, seasoned goodness.

When I was a grad student, I was always trying to stretch my pennies, and that including trying to stretch my food budget. I even wrote an article about stretching one’s food budget for my university paper; I talked about using root vegetables and seasonal produce. I came across a cookbook in a local store around the same time, and it was all about potatoes. Perfect timing, and perfect for my budget! One of the recipes in it was a seasoned potato wedge dish.

I’ve made variations of this dish for the DH and I over the years, and they’re always delicious. Plus healthier for you than deep-fried potatoes! Want to make some yourself? Here’s how!

  • 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese (the pre-grated stuff in a container is fine)
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. celery salt
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. nutritional yeast
  • 6 potatoes
  • oil to grease a cookie tray
Cut your potatoes into 6-8 wedges each. Mix up remaining ingredients in a large plastic baggie (a large freezer bag is a good size). Add in potato wedges and shake until coated, being careful not to overshake.* Empty bag onto oiled baking tray. Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 min or a bit longer depending on the size of the wedges.
*Or, have a dance party. Why? Well, why the heck not? One never needs a reason to shake, shake, shake!
Made with authentic Hungarian paprika!
