Jo Jos are a type of seasoned potato wedge that many of us learned to love at school or the deli counter. Save money by learning to make them at home. This page contains homemade Jo Jo potato recipes.
Combine cheese and seasonings. Toss potatoes in oil, then in cheese mixture. Place wedges on baking sheet in single layer. Bake at 400 degrees F until golden and tender, about 40 minutes.

This sounds good. I'm going to try it.
Cut potatoes leave on peel into 8 wedges each. Put in a mixing bowl and add 1 1/2 tablespoons of cooking oil. Add 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a little pepper. Mix until wedges are coated. Put on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F for 60 minutes, turning them occasionally until crisp and golden.

Seasoned potato wedges are always a hit. Scrub your favourite kind of potatoes and slice them into wedges. Roll them in 2 tsp. of Olive Oil and your favourite seasoning (Greek, Cajun, Oregano, Parmesan, etc. My fav is Italian with a sprinkle of Chili Pepper seeds). Bake them at 350 degrees F until they are soft in the middle and crispy on the outside. The length of cooking time depends of the thickness of the potato, usually 30-45 minutes.
Make these in the microwave oven in a lot less time.Spray a microwave safe dish with lowfat cooking spray .Place wedges on dish.
Microwave til done to desired texture.This usally takes 12- 15 minutes tops or even less if you don't make a big dish of them & have a highpowered Microwave oven like we do.
Both great ideas. If I have time I willl always go with the oven but when I'm in a hurry, it is great to know I can do these in the mircro. Thanks guys. I have a fav mexican seasoning that will be good.
Where is the recipe?

Like Donna said where is the recipe for Jo Jo Potatoes I can not find it either.
Google jojo potatoes. You'll find a lot of recipes, some baked, some deep fried.
Here is one site
I was so excited to see this topic come in because my boyfriend absolutely loved these growing up and always got them from the convenience store by his house. I have a question though, does anyone have a recipe for these with breading? I'm pretty sure that the ones he used to get actually had a breading on them.
Go to the Idaho potato site they have several recipes for these.
Scrub potatoes and cut lengthwise into 8 wedges. Put on prepared baking sheet. Combine margarine and garlic in a small bowl. Combine Parmesan and paprika in another small bowl.
