Side dishes are not something I usually spend much time on, unless I'm planning a fancy meal for guests. Thankfully, these seasoned baked potato wedges fall in the category of easy... and super yummy! :)
I start with fresh potatoes, cut into wedges, toss with oil and seasonings, and bake until crisp. I know I've mentioned how much we like Yukon Gold potatoes, but after having red potatoes again recently I remembered how much we like red potatoes for these wedges! So, so good!
Baking the potatoes takes 35-40 minutes, and while they're in the oven I tidy up the kitchen, set the table, or finish the rest of dinner. Or go change a diaper, load the washer, and get the kids busy doing whatever I had told them to do earlier. ;)
Last week we had some really beautiful sunny days, as you can see in this video! Yehoshua (6) again filmed for me as I wanted to show you just how easy this recipe is!
Of course, in the video I don't really follow my recipe very well! I was in a hurry, and going by memory. (It's terrible how many of my own recipes I don't have printed out, and am too lazy to turn on the computer to get them when needed!)
But, it'll definitely give you a "real" glimpse into how I like to cook. ;) I naturally tend towards just tossing things in, and it's only thanks to this website and Joshua's encouragement that I actually have measured, written down, and developed so many of my kitchen creations into real recipes that turn out consistently good! :)
I LOVE that sunshine!! :) I know "they" say a person shouldn't take food pictures in full sun, and probably not videos either, but I really don't care! I love sunny food pics! And noisy real-kitchen this-is-how-cooking-is-at-my-house videos! ;)
So, that's how EASY this recipe is! If you're like us and LOVE potato wedges/fries but don't want to buy the pre-made frozen versions, then you should try this recipe! :)
