Oven Roasted Potato Wedges

roasted seasoned potatoes

I love potatoes.


I grew up eating them twice baked, mashed, fried, hashed, roasted, chopped, seasoned, baked, twirled and pretty much any other way you can think up to prepare them.

I have a firm belief that the perfect baked potato exists – crispy skin, fluffy, hot, slightly soft insides.

The perfect french fry has a crisp salty skin and a fluffy inside.

Mashed potatoes and twice baked potatoes, oh y’all… I could write sonnets about both, but I won’t.

Because y’all aren’t here for potato sonnets, y’all are here for incredibly easy, deliciously wonderful, crispy, seasoned, mouth-watering oven roasted potato wedges.

This recipe for Oven Roasted Potato Wedges is one of the simplest ways to make potatoes and it can be served as a side dish or an appetizer.

      LOVE Balsamic vinegar! Cinnamon just adds a hint of a sweet smokiness and is nommy! I always add cinnamon and chocolate to my Chili, too.

      YAY! Let me know how y’all like them 😉 Try to make sure that all the chunks are roughly the same size or they won’t cook evenly. You may have to cook them longer, it’s an oven thing 😉 LOL.
      but, broiling them at the end for just a couple of minutes adds that yummy CRISP that you get in restaurants 😉 nom nom.

        Okay…it didn’t let me know that you commented on my comment, but I was already coming back.

        Holy moly…2T of pepper…our mouths were on fire and we aren’t woosy! And, I didn’t even put the cayenne pepper on it! Izzy said “these are too spicy for me!”

        I think next time, I might do a dash of pepper. But, they were good!

        And, I did have to cook them longer:)
