  • 4-6 medium-sized russet potatoes
  • ½ cup cooking oil
  • ¼ cup garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • cup fake potato flakes


  • Potatoes on the Traeger GrillCut potatoes in half and then into eighths making them into Jo-Jo style wedges. 
  • In a large salad bowl, add the potato wedges and oil. 
  • Toss, stir or fold the wedges in the oil until liberally coated. Using a bowl which is two thirds bigger than your pile of potato's makes for easy coating and much less mess.  
  • After the potatoes are coated with oil sprinkle the seasonings and coat well making sure all the flavors are evenly distributed.  Set aside.
  • Pre-heat your Traeger grill or whichever grill you are using to around 400F.
  • Just before cooking, sprinkle on up to the ⅔ cup of potato flakes on to the seasoned potato wedges. You want to coat the wedges as evenly as possible with the potato flakes and get them to adhere to each of the wedges saturated in oil.
  • Spread the wedges onto a foiled baking sheet safe for your grill taking care to keep as many of the flakes on the wedges as possible.
  • Grill for 25-35 minutes or until the potato has become golden brown, cooked thru, and developed a crispy, crackling exterior.
  • Serve immediately.
