Homemade Jo Jo Potatoes

I used to LOVE these when we would get them growing up! I still do if I can find them...not many places seem to sell them. But now I have this beauty of recipe that is pretty good!

Again, I might have a picture...still learning with the new camera! Otherwise check out Jenn's recipe for a beautiful picture!

Homemade Jo Jo Potatoes-Jenn's Food Journey
potatoes(I used 4-5 sm/med potatoes)
olive oil
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup panko crumbs
2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees with a jelly roll pan warming inside.

Slice potatoes into wedges and place in bowl and cover with plastic wrap and steam in the microwave for 4-5 mins. In the meantime, mix together panko, cheese, and spices.Drizzle with 1-2 tsp olive oil and lightly stir in bowl for one min until they look starchy. Dredge potatoes in cheese mixture and press into the potatoes a bit to get it to stick. Set aside on another cookie sheet and repeat until all potatoes are coated. Allow to rest for 15 mins(which I did not, they rested for as long as I was dredging them!)

Pull cookie sheet out of the over and lightly coat pan with oil. Quickly place the potatoes on the pan and return to the over. Bake until crispy and golden brown.(The original recipe says 25-30 mins, mine were much thinner so they only took 10-15 mins)

**These were EXCELLENT! They also came together and cooked pretty quickly due to the thinness of them. They were crispy on the outside and crunchy on the inside and lots of flavor too! I did put my wedges in a ziploc steam bag to cook them as I had no plastic wrap and it worked perfectly!
