I very often prepare these baked wedges as a healthier alternative to fries. I didn’t find a person who doesn’t love these so this is  great recipe if you have friends coming over to visit.  Children loves them too, just make sure they don’t get too spicy if kids are around.

You can make many variations to this baked potato wedges, 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 in the comments.

      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. 🙂
