For the Spice Blend:

Ingredient Amount
Oregano 1/4 teaspoon
Thyme 1/2 teaspoon
Blended black pepper 1/4 teaspoon
Cayenne 1/2 teaspoon

For the Sauce:

Ingredient Amount
Mayonnaise 1/2 pound
Garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon
Lemon juice 50%
Pepper Pinch
Salt Pinch
Smoked paprika Pinch


  1. Preheat Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil to prevent sticking.
  2. Prepare Potatoes: Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly. Pat them dry with a paper towel. Depending on your preference, you can either leave the skin on or peel it off. Cut the potatoes into wedges or cubes.
  3. Season Potatoes: In a large mixing bowl, combine the oregano, thyme, black pepper, and cayenne to create the spice blend. Add the potato wedges or cubes to the bowl and toss them until they are evenly coated with the spice blend.
  4. Bake Potatoes: Arrange the seasoned potatoes on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Bake them in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Remember to flip them halfway through cooking for even browning.
  5. Prepare Sauce: While the potatoes are baking, prepare the sauce. In a separate bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, garlic powder, lemon juice, pepper, salt, and smoked paprika until well combined.
  6. Serve: Once the potatoes are done baking, transfer them to a serving platter. Drizzle the prepared sauce over the potatoes or serve it on the side for dipping. Enjoy your delicious MOJO POTATOES!
