Baked potato wedges

A very simple recipe and I’m sure most people can figure out how to do it. I thought I’d share how we make ‘em! Sure beats deep frying some potatoes for super oily, greasy french fries.

Here’s what you need:

•3-4 potatoes. We figured about 1 potato per person, but I love potatoes, soooo..really we split up 3-4 potatoes between us ;) Don’t worry, I worked it off after dinner (damn you, Jillian Michaels!)
•Cookie sheet
•Olive oil
•Sea salt

You’ll also need a potato brush.

A what?

This. Really, we just bought a soft-bristle brush to clean the potatoes. Any brush will do.

So first thing is preheat your oven to 350ºF

Clean the potatoes under cold water with the brush. You don’t want to scrub too hard to rub away the skin. Just get the dirt off of ‘em.

All clean! Clearly I rubbed too hard on some of them, but I guess really it’s OK ;-)

Cut the potatoes length-wise and then into wedges or strips.

Drizzle olive oil on them and some sea salt, then toss around. Arrange in a single layer and bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, they should be fork tender. Turn the broil on and stick them under the broiler for 5-7 minutes until they turn crispy and delicious.

You can add some seasoning salt right when they come out of the oven, or keep it simple with salt and pepper.

The last time we made these, we actually sprinkled rosemary and olive oil on them and baked them off that way. They were soooo good! You could also mince some garlic and do Parmesan cheese and garlic or something. The possibilities are endless! What I do know is that they’re delicious and definitely a better option than deep frying in oil. Enjoy!
