The seasoning is amazing, but read a lot complaints about the batter coating. I work at a gas station and we make our own jo jos. One trick that we use is not to use any milk, or eggs or anything before putting it in the flour batter. Soak them in water for a while before you put them in the flour batter and coat them. Then make sure you let them sit in the flour batter for at least 15-20 mins and don't shake the flour off. Toss them into your deep fryer for about 11 mins depending on size. We have HUGE jo jos. They will turn out crunchy and amazing and no milk or eggs required!! :)

I guess my rating doesn't truly reflect this recipe as I tweaked it quite a bit...I didn't want to deep fry the potatoes so I substituted about 2 or 3 TBS Shake N Bake Southern Fried coating mix for the flour, and I used 1/4 tsp. pepper instead of 3/4 tsp. lemon pepper. I microwaved the wedges for 1 minute, then added all the seasonings, and then baked them in the oven on 450 degrees for about 20 min. on a greased cookie sheet with melted butter drizzled on top. They came out perfectly crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. After reading several reviews where people thought these were lacking in flavour due to the flour, I think the Shake N Bake was a good choice.

These turned out really good! They were crunchy with an excellent texture. I popped mine in the freezer for a few minutes before frying. The only adjustment I would make would be to omit the lemon pepper and substitute some other kind of spice, but that's just personal preference. They looked and tasted like restaurant quality. I was impressed!
