Spicy Baked Potato Wedges

Autumn is a time of year when your body starts to crave foods more substantial than light citrus fruit and salads. I can feel the urge for potatoes, soups, hot, warm meals.

This photo is from a search engine but it's a yummy side dish that says "Fall and Winter" all over it; Potato Wedges. Typically I just open my cupboard and grab spices to add but I realize that some people want a recipe. When I found this recipe (I think it's from circa 1992?) it was basically everything I use in my 'open the cupboard and throw it in' way of cooking. I do add onion powder to mine typically too - but that's up to you. This is a great recipe to 'start' with and then improve by tweaking for your own family and their tastes. If you like it, go ahead and make up a double or triple batch of the spices and put them in a baggy or container in the cupboard to use next time!

Spicy Baked Potato Wedges

6 unpeeled potatoes
2 T olive oil
2 t parsley
1 t chili powder
1 t paprika
3/4 t salt
1/2 t crushed dried thyme
1/4 t garlic powder
pinch of cayenne
pinch of ground rosemary

Cut each potato in quarters lengthwise. Toss with oil in large bowl. Combine the spices and sprinkle over the potato wedges and toss to coat. Bake at 425 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring a couple of times for even baking. I like to eat these dipped in mayonnaise or sour cream! :)Print Friendly and PDF
