Does anyone know what a jojo is?

Because I definitely did not. Mikey tells me that these are jojos. It must be a northern thing, because to me, these are potato wedges!

I’m a huge fan of french fries, but they aren’t the best thing in the world for you after they’ve been deep fried, so when the US Potato Board asked me to make a potato recipe with the theme “Renewed Health: Fresher, Lighter, Natural,” I knew I had to make my healthy french fry dreams come true in the most delicious way!

These wedges couldn’t be easier to make (you don’t even have to peel them!), and they are a serious crowd pleaser! I took these to a party, and I was shocked at how quickly they were devoured! The outsides get nice and crispy from the parmesan cheese and spices, and the insides are fluffy and delicious. Finally, baked fries that don’t suck!!

I paired these tasty wedges with a sauce that has only two ingredients: low-fat sour cream, and BBQ sauce! Whenever I go to a certain burger restaurant, I always get their “campfire sauce” to go with my fries. I tried to somewhat recreate that here, and I think I like my version even better! Not only is it healthier, but the tang from the sour cream pairs perfectly with the potatoes (I mean, who doesn’t like baked potatoes and sour cream??).

Crispy Seasoned Potato Wedges with Campfire Sauce

Yield: 4-6 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

For the potatoes:

  • 1 and ½ to 2 lbs Russet potatoes, washed and scrubbed
  • 1 tbsp roasted garlic olive oil (or sub regular olive oil)
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • kosher salt

For the campfire sauce:

  • 2/3 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp favorite BBQ sauce

Directions:

For the campfire sauce:

  1. Mix the sour cream and BBQ sauce together in a small bowl until smooth.
  2. Cover and place in fridge until ready to serve.

For the potatoes:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and scrub the potatoes.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut each half into quarters (producing long, skinny wedges---like giant fries).
  3. Turn the wedges onto a large baking sheet, and toss in the oil. Sprinkle the cheese, granulated garlic, paprika, and a big pinch of kosher salt over top, and toss to coat. Spread the wedges out so they are not touching each other.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and flip wedges with a metal spatula. Continue baking for 20 more minutes, until golden brown and crispy.
  5. Serve immediately with campfire sauce!

    I had no idea potato wedges could be so simple to make – for some reason, I had it in my head that they were too much effort to do at home! The campfire sauce sounds pretty addictive, too. And nope, “jojo” is not a term I’ve come across before…interesting!

      So crazy easy! And you could always change up the seasonings. I bet herbs would be wonderful!
