These potato wedges cook fast thanks to a short visit in the microwave before placing them in the oven. They are a crunchy, savory addition to any weak night dinner or game night.


  • 6 medium russet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute (substitute garlic powder if this item isn’t available in your area)
  • cooking spray


  1. Move an oven rack to the lowest position and set the oven to heat to 475. Slice the potatoes lengthwise into wedges about 1/4 inch thick. Place potato wedges into a large microwave safe bowl. Add in the vegetable oil, cornstarch, salt, pepper and 21 seasoning salute. Mix/ toss to thoroughly coat all the wedges.
  2. Place plastic wrap over the bowl and microwave for about 6 minutes, stopping half way through to mix and redistribute the potatoes in the bowl.
  3. Spread the potatoes in an even single layer in a rimmed baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Try to break up any wedges sticking together and lay them on their sides.
  4. Bake for about 25 minutes or until spotty golden brown, flipping them over with tongs half way through. Serve with ketchup or fry sauce.
