I babysit a cute little 5 year old boy in the afternoon a few days each week. He brings his own lunch, so on the days he runs errands with his mom in the morning sometimes they’ll pick something up instead of packing a sandwich at home. One day last week he brought some fried chicken and crispy potato wedges from the deli section. You know, those crispy potato wedges that are so well seasoned they are dark on the outside, but are super fluffy and white on the inside.
What you may or may not know is that those steaming hot wedges from your local grocery store probably have flour on them.
- 2 large baking potatoes
- 2-3 Tbs Oil
- 2 Tbs GF Flour ( I used my GF blend, you could also use straight up rice flour or cornstarch.)
- 1 Tbs cajun seasoning (or a combination of paprika, garlic and onion powder or whatever your favorite seasonings are.)
- 1 ½ tsp. salt
- freshly ground pepper, to taste (probably about ¼-1/2 tsp)
- I only used probably 1 ½ tsp the first time I made these, they are so much better with a little extra spice. I used more the second time I made a batch (did I mention it was later the same afternoon?) So good!
- You can EASILY make more wedges. Just slice up as many potatoes as you think you’ll need to feed your crowd and adjust the flour and seasonings proportionately. You’ll need a few baking sheets, if you over-crowd the pan they will take forever to cook and won’t get nearly as crispy. Yup, I did that.
