WE ALL LOVE POTATO WEDGES AS SIDE DISH, BUT THIS BAKED SPICY GARLIC VERSION IS A DEFINITE CROWD-PLEASER. IDEAL FOR BUSY WEEKNIGHTS OR JUST A RELAXED AND CASUAL ENTERTAINING.

I’m going tell you a little secret of mine. I am totally addicted to potato wedges. Have been for many years. And the recipe from this article, my fail-safe side dish choice when I have nothing else in the house. You can eat them on the side of burgers, with juicy grilled steaks, with roast chicken and a lot of other combinations by your choice.

What I adore about potato wedges is that you get the satisfaction of eating fries but none of the guilt. In addition, almost always I leave the skins on because I seriously love the flavor but if you prefer, you can peel it off.

The spice mixture I am using goes great with the neutral flavor of the potatoes. Of course, you can add or leave out what you like or don’t like.
