Oven Baked Potato Wedges, a simple recipe I found in Natasha’s Kitchen blog. I was trying to find some recipe related to potato and I found this. Personally I like to eat potato. Be it cooked, steamed, boiled or baked. In fact, potato is a very nutritious food. It is also very filling. Of course it is not so healthy if you fried it. Although I have to admit that fried potato is very nice!
Oven baked potato wedges is very easy to make with simple ingredients like extra virgin oil, black pepper, paprika powder, garlic, salt and potato. The original recipe included fresh parsley leaaves and parmesan cheese. However, I don’t have these ingredients when I bake the potato and thus I discarded them. Please refer to the Notes on how to use fresh parsley leaaves and parmesan cheese in this recipe.
Without further ado, let’s see how to make the oven baked potato wedges. Enjoy!
