    omeomy #2's Note:

    These were a staple in the Irish Channel in the good ole days. I still make mine in a cast iron pan but you can use any oven proof pan. For those who must have heat, add extra cayenne. To shorten baking time we sometimes nuke the potato chunks a little before adding to the oil.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Pre heat oven to about 375-400.
    2. 2
      With a fork score all over the potatoes (peeled or not), this will make them more crisp.
    3. 3
      Chop the potatoes into 1 1/2-2 inch chunks.
    4. 4
      Put the oil in the pan (warming the pan first is good, but not vital), add potatoes, sprinkle all seasonings over (go easy with the salt; more can be added after cooking) and toss and stir potatoes with two forks until all chunks are coated.
    5. 5
      Bake for 15 mins, stir well (again with the forks), bake a further 10-15 minutes.
    6. 6
      Note: If you've nuked them, the potatoes will need a little less time. Watch them towards the last few minutes.

      Great roasted potatoes. I used Zatarain's seasoning. They were nice and spicy, even without the cayenne. Second time, I used chipotle chile powder. I think they were even better. They crisped up fine in my iron skillet as long as they weren't crowded, but it took a long time.

      A good, good Loo-zi-ana food. For years and years I had thought there were no spicy foods served north of I-10. Glad to see times have changed. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.
