potatoes, cut into wedges
Yum! This was excellent. I loved all the flavors in it. I messed up, bc I mixed all the ingredients together. That means that the spices were more of a liquid, so they didn't stick as well. I will be doing this recipe again soon.
UPDATE: I did this again, and found that despite all the spices, it wasn't amazing. When I did it correctly, I found that the spices caked on the potatoes. I think that a reduction in the "spicy" spices, would allow the other ones to stand out. Also, there is no salt in the recipe.
There was nothing exceptional or delicious about the spices on these potatoes. They definitely needed salt, the flavor was flat. And just on the random chance that someone with clear braces and/or "braces chains" reads this: the turmeric will badly and permanently STAIN them. (Ditto curry, fellow braces wearers).
This is the recipe that made me finally break down and register... (every time I go searching for a recipe online I find the perfect one here.) This dish was wonderful but wished I'd added salt while tossing. I will next time. I cut them more like home fries and used a deep baking pan for about 6 servings and did the tossing right in the pan (a lot how I do a different roasted root veggies dish.) Came out great and was a big hit at our house! Yum!
Nice lightly spicy recipe, but I agreed with reviewers that it needed salt (I added about 1/2 tsp. to the spices) and I probably will add some garlic powder ,too, next time. I just lined my jelly roll pan with foil and sprayed that, for easy clean up. Will definitely make again. Thanks, for sharing.
Needs egg so the spices will stick better. I was already committed to getting the spices on there, so I had to use extra olive oil to make it work. Excellent flavor, and they went over very well at dinner.
Made these exactly as written. Paired these gems with "kickin dippin fry sauce" from this site. Will be making both for sure.
was a nice taste but nothing incredible.
i didnt use an egg, instead i just coated the wedges in a little oil then sprinkled the mixed spices on top and it stuck well and made it easier.
This is delicious made with sweet potatoes, too. The contrast of sweet to spicy is delish!
