With many common Cajun potato seasons that contain mostly salt and a few added spices, they can make dishes taste over-salted without adding a lot of flavor. Maggie’s Irish Potato Seasoning is different from anything you may have tried in the past; as a potato seasoning, it’s the perfect blend of spices to impart flavor that appeals to everyone in your family or social gathering. Try Maggie’s for your favorite Cajun potato recipe if you prefer a spicy seasoning blend or original Maggie’s for Irish herbed potatoes.
3 Steps to the Perfect Cajun Baked Potatoes
Step one: The secret to tender, melt-in-your-mouth oven roasted potatoes is to par-boil them or microwave them for a few minutes before baking them. By partially cooking your potatoes, you’ll ensure the inside is well cooked with no risk of them being hard in the center.
Cut up premium red potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Boil for 3-4 minutes or microwave for 1-2 minutes. In a mixing bowl, gently toss potato pieces with a generous amount of Maggie’s Cajun potato seasons; coat until completely covered in spice. When making this Cajun potato recipe, be sure that the potato pieces are in a single layer on top of parchment paper.
Step Two: Prepeat your oven to $400 for golden brown Cajun spiced potatoes. Using a spray bottle filled with olive, coconut, or peanut oil, spray the potatoes gently to coat them. Roast on the middle rack or for two pans, rotate top and bottom pans about halfway through the cooking phase. At the 20 minute mark, check on the Cajun seasoned potatoes to see if they’re beginning to sizzle. Insert a fork to test for doneness. When potatoes are smoking, sizzling, and tender in the middle, they’re done.
Step Three: Serve Cajun roasted potatoes just as they are or offer sour cream, ketchup, mustard, plain yogurt, or salsa as a topping or dip.
Having Maggie’s Cajun potato seasons in your kitchen arsenal will allow you to create quick & easy dishes and meals that the whole family will rave about. If you love to cook on the grill, Maggie’s is ideal as a meat rub and for coating spicy chicken wings, fish steaks, or chops just before they hit the grill.
If you’re in a hurry and need a fast and easy Irish herbed potato recipe, try placing bite-sized pieces of red potato in the microwave for 5-7 minutes until tender, then toss with a teaspoon of butter and a generous portion of Maggie’s for a taste treat that will please any crowd.
