How to Make Perfectly Seasoned Oven Breakfast Potato Wedges.

This is arguably not a “Caribbean” recipe, however I must mention that mommy would do French Fries (say chips) for us in a similar way when we were children, as mentioned in the video below. She would season the cut potatoes with Caribbean Green Seasoning and then fry them as you would normally with fries.

2 1/2 lbs potatoes (Yukon Gold)
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
1 tablespoon Caribbean Green Seasoning
3/4 teaspoon black pepper

Notes! Be mindful that the Creole seasoning will have a noticeable sodium element. Should you not be able to find Creole seasoning you may use any of your fav bbq rubs, especially those with smoked paprika. You can easily make your own bbq rub for this by combining equal parts onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, crushed pepper flakes or cayenne pepper powder.

While I used Yukon Gold potatoes, you may use your fav potato or if you wanted, sweet potatoes will also work. Since I cut them into wedges with the skin on, be sure to give them a good wash.

Do rinse (again) the potatoes after cutting them into wedges to get rid of the starch. Then place everything into a large bowl and give it a toss to coat evenly.

As your oven comes to 400 F, line a baking tray with parchment (or foil) and spread the potatoes on one layer. Be sure to drain all the oil from the bowl onto the potatoes.

Then into the oven on the middle rack for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, remove them from the oven, flip/toss and return back into the oven for a further 15 minutes.

As soon as you remove them from the oven for the final time, give them a toss to coat with any remaining seasoned oil on the parchment/tray. In 30 minutes you’ll have delightful roasted potato wedges reminiscent of those seasoned fries mommy would make for us all those years ago.

This is my go to dish to enjoy with eggs and coffee on the weekends, but it would also make for an excellent side at dinnertime.
