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.

Spicy Potato Wedges...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

These look really yummy, Mary. I like the idea of dipping them in salsa - never thought about that with potato wedges for some reason. Love all of the spices here, too!

Mmm, that looks like it would work for sweet potatoes too, very yummy!

Always a man pleaser!

StephenC said...

One thing we saw on "America's Test Kitchen" is that they heated the pans while the oven was coming up to temp. We love baked potatoes of this sort.

Gone-ta-pott said...

I love potato wedges! I change up the seasoning according to what I have and what I'm serving. I like them with chicken or barbecue pork sandwiches the best though.

highplainsdrifters said...

Let's see ... a pound of potatoes for under a dollar, or a bag of frozen french fries for $3-4. Easy choice! Cheers!

Michelle Peters - Jones said...

Mary, thank you so much for sharing this recipes. I was just looking around for one, as I happen to have a glut of potatoes that need using up.

Do you think this recipe would work with sweet potatoes? I can imagine the flavours would be delicious.

I just want to tell you how much I love your blog... its my standby for daily cooking!!

I know our grandchildren will love these potatoes and so will we.

If you come over to My Sweet and Savory, there is a giveaway for the dressings, again. If you liked them, you might want to put your name in again. It is over tomorrow.

I make a recipe very similar to this all the time, and everyone loves it!

Tasha said...

Great kid friendly recipe that would be parent approved as well!

Tender B. said...

I've always wondered why more people don't make their own as they usually cook up in about the same time as the frozen kinds plus they are much better.
