Potato Wedges

Once in a week, some form of potato recipe will be made in our home. And with a crispy outer layer and tender inner layer, potato wedges is such a comfort tea time snack. You can either deep fry them or bake it in oven. I prefer baking as it requires less oil and doesn’t require me to stay in kitchen for a long time:)

Potato Wedges

Ingredients:

Potatoes – 4

Olive Oil –  4 tsp

Salt – as neded

Dry Basil – 1/4 tsp (optional)

Italian Seasoning/pepper powder – 1/4 tsp (I used Italian Seasoning)

Cooking spray/Oil – as required (I used cooking spray)

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Wash & cut potatoes into wedges, by cutting lengthwise in half then slice each half into slices depending on the potato size
  • Place potatoes in a bowl of cold water and rest for 10  – 15 mins. Pat dry them. In a mixing bowl add potatoes, olive oil, basil, salt and Italian seasoning, and combine well

  • Place seasoned potatoes on the baking tray and bake for 15 – 20 min (or until the potatoes are cooked through). They should be brown and crispy on the outside and tender inside. Turn in between for even cooking. Serve with Ketchup/Ranch

My Notes:

  • Instead of adding basil before baking, you can also add after baking
  • Parsley can be used instead of basil
  • The same recipe can be done with sweet potato as well
