If you are ever looking for easy recipes for dinner, potato wedges are just that. Potato wedges are really simple to make, a healthy alternative to chips, and I have yet to find someone who does not like them. I keep the skin on which not only holds them together, but gives you a small dose of fibre without noticing.
you can use whatever size of potato you like, I tend to use large ones as that is what I have in the cupboard. If you potatoes have been in the cupboard too long and have sprouted little shoots, just chop the shoots out and you are ready to go.
|Serves: 2 adults and 2 children||Prep Time: 5 mins||Cooking Time: 20 minutes|
|1 1/2||teaspoons||vegetable oil|
- Heat the oven to 200’C no fan/ 220’C no fan/ Gas 7.
- Pour the oil onto a baking tray and put in the oven to warm up for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile cut the potato into wedges. The easiest way is to chop each potato in half length ways, then place it cut side down on your chopping board. Still cutting lengthwise, chop into 3 or 4 wedges depending on the size of your potato.
- Take the heated tray out of the oven and add the wedges. Ensure that they all get a coating of oil
- Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, then take out and turn the wedges over. Bake for a further 10 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve immediately.
