Spicy Potato Wedges
From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite....This is another recipe that is perfect to make when you have young cooks assisting you. The potato wedges are really easy to make and they are a delicious and healthy alternative to French fries. With just a splash of oil, some spices and the help of a hot oven, the humble potato becomes a real treat that is perfect to serve with hamburgers or other grilled meat. Once tried, they become addictive and you'll find yourself making them over and over again. You might want to substitute the mix that coats the potatoes with one of your choosing. I like to bake these until they are crispy and a wedge held between two fingers can be held without bending. The baking time in the recipe below should be viewed as a suggestion rather than fiat. I like to serve these with aioli but my young cooks prefer salsa for dipping. I think you'll like these. I know the kids will love them. Here's the recipe.
