Baked Potato Wedges
Posted on July 26, 2012
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.
- Makes about 3-4 servings
- 4 medium potatoes
- 1 tsp Paprika
- 1/4 tsp chili powder, optional
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder, optional
- 3 tbsp oil
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- green onion to garnish
- Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F).
- Wash the potatoes and cut into wedges.
- Put the potato wedges into a large bowl. Sprinkle paprika, chili powder, garlic powder if used, salt, pepper and oil and toss gently to coat.
- Lay the wedges in a single layer on a greased baking tray.
- Bake for about 25-30 min until the wedges are golden brown and crispy on the outside.
