Do you love JoJo Potatoes? Jojo potato wedges are potatoes that are battered just like chicken fried steak, and oh so irresistible.
I don’t know about you, but I find these Jojo potato wedges so hard to resist. The potatoes are perfectly crisp on the outside, and tender and moist on the inside. These famous potato wedges are sold at many places. Years ago I worked at a place where we made mounds of fried chicken all of the time. These potatoes were one of the dishes that we served. I feel like I made a ton of these over my years working in that restaurant.
These potatoes are very simple to make. You might even call this recipe easy. You will need potatoes fry frying, I use Russet potatoes for this recipe. I typically get a five-pound bag, because the potatoes aren’t too big and they aren’t too small. If you have larger potatoes, you can use them, but you will need to cut them into more than 4 slices.
I fry these potatoes in vegetable oil. I don’t use peanut oil or any other fancy types of oil. I do use a T-Fal fryer though, I think it is great because there is a lid, and it will allow you to filter the oil to lengthen its life. By filtering the oil, burnt particles filter out, and it keeps your oil from burning or tasting off.
