I too don't really care for microwave use and already had my oven on so threw these in at 375 degrees for about 50 minutes. I only used 1 very large baking potato cut into wedges. Used EVOO in lieu of vegetable oil. Added salt and pepper to taste with the other 2 spices. Didn't have parmesan so grated some romano cheese at the end. My husband liked these very much. Very simple recipe that can be tweeked w/spices to taste.

These were alright, but I wouldn't serve them to guests. They came out soggy, as expected. If I were to use this recipe again, I would bake the potato wedges in the gas oven instead of microwave. Otherwise, they tasted fine, but just not crunchy on the outside, the way I love my wedges.

These potatoes were really good! I cooked them about half way in the microwave then put into the oven for about 20 minutes to complete the cooking and "crispy" up the outer edges. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and put everything in a plastic bag and shook it to coat the potato wedges. Next time will use less oil as it seemed oilier than necessary. Husband ate 3 servings. Will definitely make again!

These were really easy and very flavorful. Because my wedges were done before the rest of the meal, I placed them in the oven to stay warn. Some of the wedges started to get crispy and they were the best. Next time I think I will make in the oven so all the wedges are crispy.

I think this recipe is great, except I don't like to microwave food. I think that it turned out good in the oven 350 degrees for 45 min. adding the cheese near the end.

I didn't measure anything...just sprinkled it on. I used red potatoes & put them in a pyrex baking dish. Sprinkled them w/ the oil & seasoning & nuked them for 7 minutes. Heated the oven up to 425 & finished them off in there for about 10 minutes although I think they could have used 5 minutes more, to crisp them up a bit further. These were perfect w/ a homemade hamburger...thanks!

Good quick sidedish. Doesn't heat up the kitchen in the summer and can be served with many things.

Loved this recipe. As a few had suggested, I actually just mixed the spices into the oil and then tossed the wedges around in the oil to coat. I switched to olive oil and used 1 tsp paprika (my teaspoons are always heaping!), 1 tsp garlic powder, 2 tbsp romano cheese (instead of Parmesan), and 1 tsp. cayenne pepper, along with the salt and pepper. Once tossed, I put the potatoe wedges on a baking sheet and baked at 400 degrees for 30-40 min. Thanks for the great recipe!
