Crispy BBQ Potato Wedges
- 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for greasing the pan)
- 8-10 medium golden potatoes, cut into wedges
- 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- a pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a large baking sheet, greasing it with 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
- Slice the potatoes into wedges and add them to a large bowl.
- Add the seasoning salt, paprika, garlic powder, pepper, and cayenne to the bowl, along with the 1/3 cup of vegetable oil.
- Toss the potatoes, spices, and oil together until the potatoes are well coated.
- Pour the potato wedges onto the prepared baking sheet and spread them out in a single layer.
- Bake the wedges at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 22-25 minutes, or until the wedges are golden brown.
- Remove them from the oven and enjoy immediately with ketchup for dipping, or your favourite dipping sauce!
- Make sure your oven temperature is hot - use an oven thermometer to ensure your oven temperature is 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Use the convection setting on your oven to avoid having to flip the potato wedges halfway through baking.
- If your oven doesn't have a convection setting, flip the potato wedges halfway through baking to ensure even browning.
