Roasted Cajun Potato Wedges


Tender and spicy roasted potato wedges are easy to prepare and are a delicious, fit for all occasions sort of side dish. The recipe calls for olive oil but I just happened to have a little bacon grease so I used that instead. Delicious!


If you can handle it, the gorgonzola sauce that I've posted previously goes perfectly with these spicy potatoes. Pour it over the hot, cooked potatoes and stir to combine. The gorgonzola pieces will melt, becoming gooey and amazing.

Roasted Cajun Potato Wedges
Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:
  • 3 medium potatoes (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 medium onion, cut into 6 wedges (cut onion in half, then cut each half into 3 wedges)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or bacon grease
  • 1-2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (1 teaspoon was plenty spicy for my tastes)
  • Optional gorgonzola sauce: 1/2 cup mayo mixed 2-3 Tablespoons milk. Stir well then add in 1/3 cup gorgonzola crumbles. Pour over cooked, hot potatoes. Stir gently to coat. Serve warm.
Directions:
  1. Cut each potato lengthwise into eight wedges (If using smaller potatoes, cut each into 4 wedges); place in a greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with Cajun seasoning; toss to coat.
  2. Bake at 450° for 20-25 minutes or until tender, stirring half way through.

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.


Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!
