Ingredients for Your Homemade Longhorn Experience:

  • 4 medium russet potatoes: These starchy potatoes are ideal for achieving the desired fluffy interior and crispy exterior.

Seasoning Symphony:

  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust for desired spice level)
  • ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon paprika
  • 4-6 tablespoons olive oil

Step-by-Step Guide to Crispy Potato Perfection:

  1. Prep the Potatoes: Wash and dry your russet potatoes thoroughly.
  2. Slicing for Success: Using a sharp knife, carefully slice the potatoes into wedges. Here's a tip: stop cutting about halfway through so the wedges remain connected at the bottom. This not only helps them maintain their shape during baking but also creates a delightful pocket for the flavorful seasonings. Alternatively, slice them at an angle for an extra dose of crispy goodness.
  3. Preheat for Baking: Get your oven ready to work its magic by preheating it to 400°F (200°C).
  4. Spice Up Your Life: In a small bowl, combine all the dry ingredients - salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. This flavorful blend will be your secret weapon for creating restaurant-worthy potatoes.
  5. Oil It Up: For that irresistible crispy exterior, lightly coat the potato wedges with olive oil using a spray bottle or brush.
  6. Seasoning Magic: Generously sprinkle the prepared spice mixture over the oiled potato wedges, making sure all sides are evenly coated. Don't be shy - embrace the flavor!
  7. Baking Time: Place the seasoned potato wedges on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This not only helps with cleanup but also prevents sticking. Bake them in your preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender on the inside and beautifully crisped on the outside. Keep an eye on them during the last few minutes to ensure they don't burn.
  8. Enjoy!: Carefully remove the baked potato wedges from the oven and serve them hot. They're the perfect accompaniment to any main course or can be enjoyed on their own as a delightful and satisfying snack.
