Seasoned Cajun Potato Wedges

Standard

This was done on the fly! I have to admit, I was just trying to use up my potatoes before I had to throw them away! lol I really hate wasting food. So, this is a great way to use up those potatoes…and why is it always like 5 random, oddly-shaped looking potatoes left in the bag?! lol This recipe is so easy, I used a deep fryer, it took 8 minutes on 375 degrees. But you can use a regular frying pan if you want, but I highly recommend using a fryer because they cook up quickly and evenly- no fuss!

Deep fry on 375 degrees for 8 minutes until potatoes are crispy and golden brown. Place on paper towel to drain excess oil and ENJOY!

You can add a dollop of sour cream and chives IF YOU MUST 😉 I did! lol
