The first bite was excellent. After that it tasted too salty (and yes, I did use kosher salt). I will probably cut the salt down to a teaspoon or two in the future. But I will use this recipe again! It is far better than the store-bought powder mix.
I completely forgot about adding cheddar, but the spuds do not need it. I eyeballed the olive oil. If using all five potatoes (I use red), double the seasoning. I just dump oil and spices in a gallon bag, mix them up, then dump in the potatoes and onion to coat them.
Many times later: I just tried dumping all ingredients in a glass casserole dish and stirring. It does not work nearly as well as putting everything in a bag. The potatoes are not evenly spicy, and there is too much oil, so they never crisped. Still decent, but stick with the bag in the future.
12.24.13 - Made it with 4 red potatoes (cut TINY), almost Tbs garlic powder, no onions, almost Tbs chili, tsp salt, enough olive oil for a sludge (for garbage plates). Perfect (for plates).
02.02.14 - Doubled the 12.24.13 version for Garbage Plates for a party.
