A recipe for baked potato wedges, seasoned with Cajun seasoning, then baked to golden brown, served with a spicy Cajun-sour cream sauce.

A summertime favorite! French fries are SO FREAKING good, but you know, they just aren’t the healthiest things in the world. They’re fried, so that adds a LOT of calories and fat to the meal.

When I cook at home, I try not to fry very often and will opt for baking instead. It isn’t always ideal, but in this case it sure is. Hence – Baked Potato Wedges. Are they as good as fried potatoes?

We think so!

Tossed in oil and liberally seasoned with garlic, salt and pepper and your very favorite Cajun seasoning blend, these potato wedges bake up with a nice crust and spicy flavor.

And then there is the Cajun-Sour Cream Sauce. Is it a sauce? A dip? Does it really matter?

It is one of the simplest sauces you’ll ever make in your life – four ingredients, mix, done! It takes no titme to whip together, but simple is not a bad thing.

In fact, this particular sauce is a perfect pairing with these baked babies. I mention that these are summertime favorites because you can also cook these on the grill instead of the oven. Cook them in indirect heat on the grill as you could bake them.

Let the outer crust form on the potato wedges and go to town. This is an uber summer side dish, certainly one of our favorites.

Patty’s Perspective

I request these baked potato wedges constantly through the grilling season. What can I say? I grew up in a meat and potatoes kind of family. My family is obsessed with potatoes, to the point where we make mashed potatoes by the TON for family parties. I love these potatoes! And to have a dipping sauce, what an extra bonus.
