Baked Potato Wedges

Potato is one popular vegetable with a mass appeal, especially being the primary ingredient for our eternally favorite "French Fries". For those looking to cut down on calories that come with the fries, here is a healthier alternative - Baked Potato Wedges. This can be served as a great side dish, snack or an appetizer and should keep your family  munching on them until they all gone! 

Makes 30 Potato Wedges

5 large - Baking potatoes, unpeeled
2 Tbsp - Olive oil
1 1/4 Tsp - crushed and minced fresh garlic or 1/2 Tsp - Garlic Powder
1/2 Tsp - Dry Parsley
1 Tsp - Dry Oregano
Freshly ground black pepper as per taste

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Clean and scrub the potatoes, cut them in half lengthwise, then cut each half in thirds lengthwise. You'll have 6 long wedges from each potato. 
  • Place the potatoes in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, parsley and Oregano. With clean hands, toss all the ingredients together, making sure the potatoes are well covered with oil. 
  • Spread the potatoes in a single layer with 1 cut-side down.
  • Bake the potatoes for 30 to 35 minutes, turning sides after 20 minutes. Bake until they are lightly browned, crisp outside, and tender inside. Serve Hot
