Easy oven baked potato wedges


With Miranda, 7, if we do something for her once, we can count on doing it for the foreseeable future. That’s not necessarily a bad thing – we just have to be prepared. Well, I got her potato wedges from the Publix deli once, and that was all it took – whenever we shop there, she asks for potato wedges. I surprised her the other night by baking some at home for her. It also gave me the opportunity to eat them with less guilt since they’re baked instead of fried!

Start with russet potatoes. Two large ones produced enough wedges for the four of us to share.
After washing each potato, I cut them in half and then cut the halves into wedges. The next step is to put them in a bowl with the oil of your choice and make sure they’re well covered. After that, arrange them onto a cookie sheet covered in foil. I read somewhere that the shiny side should face up. Then sprinkle them with your favorite seasonings. I used basil, bullion and pink Himalayan sea salt.
After baking at 400 degrees for approximately 55 minutes, you should end up with these! I turned these about half-way during the cooking time. Next time, I’m spraying the foil with nonstick spray in addition to coating the wedges in a little oil. Enjoy!
