Baked Potato Wedges

Baked Potato Wedges

I've been asked to post some simple but delicious potato recipes that can be easily made as a snack along some ketchup or chili sauce or as a side dish along meat or just a fresh salad.

 
I very often do these wedges as a healthier alternative to fries. I didn't find a person who doesn't love these. This is  great recipe if you have friends coming over to visit. Children loves them, but if made for children too, make sure they don't get too spicy. 
 
Many variations can be made like adding herbs or other spices or sprinkle some cheese on top right after they are out of the oven. If you have any other suggestions I'd be pleased to have them shared here.

I love potato wedges for an easy side dish, but I usually buy them frozen. Until now! These look so simple and delicious!

I have loved this blog for a lonnggg time, but never have I wanted to make something so immediately as when I saw these lovelies! Trying to think of what I could have with them for dinner tonight...
Re:

Thank you for your nice words :) . If  it is of any help.. we usually serve them with some grilled fish filet or just a fresh salad. These are so good that until the fish is done almost half of the potatoes are gone. :)
