Garbage Potato Wedges

by Jill Dalton

This recipe was shared with me from a friend our family made while living in Hawaii. His method was to place potato wedges and a bunch of spices into a garbage bag and toss it around until the wedges were well coated and then bake them. I no longer use the garbage bag but have opted for a bit safer ziplock bag.

Part of the name also comes from the amount of seasonings that go on these puppies. It is just about any or all the spices in your spice rack and they can be altered to your taste. The ones I have listed are the ones our family has become partial to. Hope you enjoy them as much as our family does.

I enjoy eating them with spicy mustard but my kids and hubby usually stick to good old ketchup and sometimes BBQ sauce.

What kind of ketchup do you use because I have a hard time finding it without sugar and other ingredients I would rather not eat?
Thanks!

Ketchup is a tough one when it comes to sugar. We use Organic Ville. It still has agave though.

Is there any things you could use to replace the amines to make it completely sodium free? Would water or even something like balsamic vinegar work? Thank you! They look AMAZING!

Veggie broth. I think vinegar would work too, it would just taste stronger🤗

Dr Fuhrman’s Ketchup is sugar and salt free and tasts great! For when you don’t have the time to make your own.

Made these last night to take to work. They didn’t make it to work. Question is where is the 20g of fat coming from?

The first time I tried this recipe my son was visiting. I ate some and loved the taste. My son came in and ate the rest off the fries. He loved them also, and now makes them at his place also.
