Shakey's Copycat "Mojo" Potatoes

I don't know if you remember Shakey's Pizza but they would serve these “Mojo” potatoes with their Pizza and Chicken and it was good! ,Here is a Copycat recipe for Mojos from a popular west coast Pizza Parlor called Shakey's Pizza.

6 fresh potatoes
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon butter, slightly melted
2 cups flour
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne
1/4 teaspoon of thyme
1/4 teaspoon of paprika
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Peanut cooking oil
Seasoning salt

Mix together eggs, milk, and butter in a bowl. Place dry ingredients except salt in second bowl.

Cut each potato into 6 (1/4-inch thick) rounds.

Place oil 3 inches deep in frying pan or use deep fryer at 375

Place potato rounds in egg mixture covering completely, then roll potatoes in flour mixture. Place potatoes on cookie sheet while others are battered.

Once all potatoes are battered drop in frying pan. Make sure oil covers the potatoes completely. If needed add more oil. Once golden brown, and cooked, drain from oil and add seasoning salt.
