5-Spices Roasted Potato Wedges

These were sort of my take on Red Robin's delicious fries. Man, those are so good. We don't go out to eat very often, but when we do sometimes we go to RR for their bottomless fries. Their spice mixture is just so tasty!

So I just tried to throw some spices together and hope it was equally as good on some roasted potatoes. This takes regular potatoes and really jazzes them up! We served these with dinner, and also with a nice breakfast when we had my brother-in-law over.

We try to add in some extra starches on days we have workouts, but if you are trying to be lower carb you might want to make these on special occasions and not for regular eating.

1) 2 pounds of potatoes of choice (russet, sweet, white, red...)
2) 1 tablespoon cooking oil (ghee, coconut oil, etc)
3) 1 tablespoon of spice mixture

Ingredients for Spice Mixture
1) 1 tablespoon salt
2) 1 tablespoon paprika
3) 1 tablespoon chili powder
4) 1 teaspoon dried basil (or Italian seasoning)
5) 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Get out a cookie sheet and coat it with a silicone mat or with parchment paper.
2) Chop up your potatoes into similar shaped cubes, to ensure even cooking.
3) Drizzle your 1 tablespoon of cooking oil over the cubes and mix with your hands.
4) Mix up your spice mixture. This will make a lot, so use something you can store (we used a small plastic container). You'll be able to make this recipe about 4 times by just making this spice mixture once.
5) Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the spice mixture on your potatoes, and use your hands to mix and ensure even coating.
6) Cook for 35-45 minutes, flipping over at the half way point.
