I like potato wedges. To me, they are like fries, but more flavorful (more surface area and a greater variety of seasonings.) Unfortunately, they are like fries and are unhealthy. Hence, I decided to come up with a good baked wedges recipe. After many failed experiments, I finally found a recipe that worked. These were crispy but not burnt, and weren’t oily either. If you’re looking for a good baked wedges recipe, this is it!
- 4 russet potatoes
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
Scrub potatoes with skin on, and cut each potato into eight wedges, then place the wedges in a large mixing bowl.
Roughly chop the rosemary, then add everything into the bowl with the potato wedges. Toss the wedges and coat everything with oil and herbs evenly.
Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil, then place the wedges skin side down on the foil. Make sure the wedges do not touch each other.
