What are Jo JO Potatoes?
Jo Jo Potatoes are potatoes wedges that are (sometimes) preboiled, then coated in seasoned flour and a batter and fried to crispy, golden-brown perfection. The outsides are nice and crisp, the insides are fluffy like a perfectly baked potato.
These upgraded potato wedges make a wonderful side dish, TV snack, or a shared appetizer, and are typically served with lots of different sauces and condiments like plain or seasoned sour cream, ketchup, or barbecue sauce! Also so good with Ranch Dressing or any vegan Ranch Dip. I’ll list my favorite dips for this vegan version in a second.
You might find these special potato wedges as a gas station snack but they can also be part of any diner breadbasket of the midwest, upper midwest, and Pacific Northwest.
What is the difference between JoJo and potato wedges?
A true Jojo potato is a potato cut into eight segments, breaded with flour and batter – like fried chicken, and cooked in a pressure fryer. Well, I don’t have a pressure fryer and I bet you don’t either but that’s ok! You can either bake these in the oven or pan-fry them! Also, a true jo jo is served with ranch. In the tips section, I list my favorite vegan dips for these.
