Two Peas and Their Pod: Recipe for Roasted Potato Wedges

Recipe for Roasted Potato Wedges

It's finally Friday, yahoo! Any fun plans? I have the day off so I am catching up on house cleaning and errands. Tonight I am going to meet up with two of my food blogging friends for dinner. Kalyn, of Kalyn's Kitchen, is having me and Chris, from Mele Cotte, over for dinner. It should be a fun night.

My dad is flying in late tonight from Illinois. He is only going to be here for the weekend, but I will take what I can get:) We plan on going to the Farmer's Market Saturday morning and we might try a hike later on. We will pack in as much fun as possible.

Today I am sharing an easy recipe for roasted potato wedges. They are the perfect side to so many dishes. Adults and kids love them too. You can keep it simple and flavor them with salt and pepper, or you spice things up with Cajun spices, chili powder, cumin, etc. I like to add fresh rosemary and Spike seasoning. You can serve them plain or with dipping sauces. Roasted potato wedges are a healthy alternative to French fries. They are tasty, easy, and cheap too!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Roasted Potato Wedges

(Printable Recipe)

4 potatoes, washed, scrubbed, and cut into wedges (we leave the skin on)
Olive oil
Salt/pepper (use other seasonings if you wish)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. On a baking sheet toss the potato wedges with a little bit of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Use additional seasonings if you wish.
3. Spread out the wedges on the baking sheet. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Make sure you toss and turn the wedges every 10 to 15 minutes. You want them to be a little crispy.
4. Serve plain or with dipping sauces such as ketchup, bbq sauce, etc.

The Potatoes look yummy. I add Cajun seasoning mix to a lot of things but I never thought of doing it with roasted potatoes.

Yum! Ooh, and doing sweet potatoes this same way is awesome, too.

Hey, I made your recently posted Honey Whole Wheat Bread today. It is beautiful and tastes awesome. I LOVED that I didn't have to do the kneading and there was only one rise time. GREAT bread. I actually just happened to be out of lemon juice, so I used distilled vinegar. Works the same purpose.
Have a great weekend!

Katrina-I am glad you tried the bread and had success! It is our favorite.

Potato Wedges are one of my hubs and my favs! You're dad's from IL? I grew up there, but now live right over the border in Northwest Indiana. (as close to Chicago as you can get:)

Can never go wrong with simplicity. Another one of my favorite way is toss them with old bay seasoning and then dip with tzatziki sauce.

Potato wedges are a definite hit around here. The only part I dread is cutting them up, but they truly are much better then fries. Thanks for this recipe. Got to love roasted potato wedges, even if I eat them everyday!
