Baked Potato Wedges

To be honest this really doesn’t need a recipe….. but maybe it’s worth thinking about if you’re inclined to use oven chips. Oven chips (in my experience) are universally horrible and take an age to cook…. at least twice the time it says on the pack. Also, some have a milk based coating which obviously makes them a no-no for us. Ok, chips or French fries aren’t particularly healthy but I think everyone likes them now and then (except maybe little S!), and this recipe makes them as good for you as possible.

Baked Potato Wedges (dairy-free, egg-free, soya-free, nut-free, vegetarian, vegan)

  • as many potatoes as you’ll need
  • a little oil
  • a sprinkle of herbs (i like herbs de provence or oregano)
  • a pinch of smoked paprika (optional)
  • seasoning

– Heat the oven to very high, about 220 degrees centigrade

– Cut each potato into various evenly sized wedges (no need to peel) and place in a bowl

– Drizzle over the oil and sprinkle on the herbs, paprika (if using) and seasoning. Toss to coat each wedge well

– Place in a single layer on a baking sheet

– Roast for approx. 30 minutes (turning once) until golden and crisp

    Mmm, one of my favourite foods ever! Love them sprinkled with rosemary or paprika but I also recommend drizzling balsamic vinegar over them before bakin (if you like the stuff) as it’s absolutely delish!
