Cajun Roasted Potato Wedges

These cajun roasted potato wedges made the perfect side dish for Fran's slow cooker chuck roast. Fran picked up a nice chuck roast at the grocery store and decided to slow roast it in our crockpot.

If I'm going to have a good roast and gravy then I need to have potatoes. I'm not a fan of adding potatoes to the crockpot while cooking a roast. For me, they always seem to turn out too soft and mushy.

So, just before the roast was finished I made these cajun roasted potato wedges in the oven. Potatoes are another side dish that is so versatile. I made these Cajun-style using Penzeys Cajun Seasoning.

You can season your potato wedges with so many different seasoning. Some options are Italian seasoning, garlic, and butter, or try steak seasoning.

Here is all I used:

4 medium white potatoes
Olive oil
Penzeys Cajun Seasoning
Salt and Pepper
Pam non-stick spray

First I washed the potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise and then in half again. I put the wedges in a medium bowl and tossed them with olive oil until they were all coated.

I sprayed my cookie sheet with Pam non-stick spray to be sure the potatoes wouldn't stick while roasting. Then I generously coated the wedges with salt, pepper, and the cajun seasoning.

I set the oven to 450 degrees and roasted the wedges for 30 minutes until they were golden brown.

I have to tell you these came out of the oven just perfect. Crispy and tasty on the outside, nice and firm on the inside. These potatoes were a perfect fit for our slow roasted chuck roast. This is an easy 30-minute side dish for any meat and potatoes meal.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.

  2. I used to make a similar potato, but a bit less spicy. I really miss potatoes since we stopped eating them.

  4. Roasted potatoes are one of our favorites. I'll bet the cajun spice really kicks them up a bit, I'll have to give that a go!
