Not the most exciting post and recipe but Potato Wedges are eaten a lot in our house so I thought it time that they made an appearance on my blog! Since I don't own a deep-fryer any time we want chips or fries, this is what we have. They are delicious on their own but even better served with my Homemade Tomato Ketchup; Cheat's Aioli or for the ultimate indulgence my Basil Hollandaise! And for an extra special touch, just before serving sprinkle over some Chilli & Lime Salt.
Serve these wedges with Steak, Burgers, Crispy Chicken strips or even just on their own with a good old fried egg!
4 medium sized potatoes
2 tbsp mild olive oil or vegetable oil
¼ tsp sweet paprika
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp onion powder
½ tsp Italian seasoning
Salt & Pepper
Preheat the oven to 425F/ 220C. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 4 long wedges so that you have 8 wedges in total. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
Place on a baking tray, drizzle with the oil then sprinkle with the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix well (its best to use your hands at this point) so that all the wedges are evenly covered with the oil and spices.
Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, turning half way through cooking, until they are crisp and golden on the outside, and light and fluffy inside.
