Baked Potato Wedges

I'm in a mood for these delicious mouth watering Potato wedges maybe say on a rainy day and on snow days which we have been blessed with so many this winter and I'm ready for Spring already or even Summer. These Potato wedges are super easy to make. They are so easy that even a caveman can make these (wait will he not need an oven..oh well, its just a thought. )

  • 4 Russet Potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • McCormick Barbecue Seasoning

Preparation :

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Wash the potatoes well and pat them dry. Cut the unpeeled potatoes into 1/4 inch wedges. (About 10 wedges per potato).
  3. In a bowl mix olive oil and the barbecue seasoning(about 1 tbsp). Add the potato wedges and toss to coat.
  4. Take a greased baking sheet and arrange the wedges in a single layer.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes until the wedges are golden brown and crispy. Toss once after the first 15 minutes. Adjust the seasoning( salt) and serve immediately.
  6. This recipe serves 4. I have used one potato per person. So you could accordingly tweak this recipe if you are making for more. Enjoy these crispy oven baked Potato wedges with a cup or two of hot ginger tea or coffee.

I have used McCormick Barbecue Seasoning. Now the McCormick Barbecue Seasoning has the following in case you would want to make your own mix- Brown Sugar, Salt, spices(including red pepper), tomato, garlic, onion , Red bell peppers and parsley. You could even use salt and red chilli powder and they are good as well .
