We made it! Finally, Friday is here. I wanted to wind down the week with one of my favorite comfort foods – potatoes. Potatoes are easy to make, versatile, easy to season and accepts flavors well.
For me, potato wedges must have some crunch and a whole lot of flavor. I really work hard on making sure they get golden brown and cook evenly. Nothing worse then getting a good bite of potato and then a partially raw bite. We have all been there.
These little wonders are super easy to make and if you are on a budget you can really stretch your dollar with this recipe.
- 3 Medium-Large Baking Potatoes
- 1 Tbsp. Dried Thyme
- 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut the potatoes into even wedges.
- Place Potatoes in a bowl and add all other ingredients.
- Coat well, line cookie sheet with parchment paper and place in a single layer.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown. (Baking time will depend on the heat of your oven)
Zesty Tip: When baking potato wedges, it is important not to crowd the cookie sheet and keep it to a single layer. This will allow even cooking. Turning often is key despite the fact you will lose heat from your oven when you open it. Stay close to the oven, keep an eye on them and get them golden and crispy.
This turned out really well and were very satisfying. I made two dips to go along with the wedges. First one was a curry mayonnaise dip and the second one was a sweet chili ranch dip. I just whipped them up in side dishes however I forgot to take a picture…. slack I know.
Let me know what you like to dip you potato wedges in? I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday.
