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.
