I too don't really care for microwave use and already had my oven on so threw these in at 375 degrees for about 50 minutes. I only used 1 very large baking potato cut into wedges. Used EVOO in lieu of vegetable oil. Added salt and pepper to taste with the other 2 spices. Didn't have parmesan so grated some romano cheese at the end. My husband liked these very much. Very simple recipe that can be tweeked w/spices to taste.


These potatoes were really good! I cooked them about half way in the microwave then put into the oven for about 20 minutes to complete the cooking and "crispy" up the outer edges. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and put everything in a plastic bag and shook it to coat the potato wedges. Next time will use less oil as it seemed oilier than necessary. Husband ate 3 servings. Will definitely make again!


These were really easy and very flavorful. Because my wedges were done before the rest of the meal, I placed them in the oven to stay warn. Some of the wedges started to get crispy and they were the best. Next time I think I will make in the oven so all the wedges are crispy.
