I love French Fries and who does not love a way to enjoy this treat without the guilt of calories? I do and you do.
Making homemade wedges are easy when done in the oven.
For a spicy version, I used an all-purpose seasoning salt and added extra black pepper.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes
Yield: Serves 3
- 2 lb Idaho potatoes
- All purpose seasoning salt (your favorite brand)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large saucepan of water to a roaring boil. When the pot comes to a boil, salt liberally.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Scrub potatoes, cut in halves and then into thick cut wedges.
Add potatoes to boiling water and cook for 3 minutes (time begins when the pot comes back to a boil).
Drain potatoes well, shaking off any excess water. Transfer to a large baking sheet.
Drizzle potatoes with oil, all purpose seasoning and black pepper. Toss to coat and spread out in an even layer.
Roast for 20 minutes; use a flat spatula to flip wedges and bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until the potatoes are nicely browned.
