Crispy Potato Wedges

This whole pregnancy, potatoes and rice have been my absolute favorite. Yes, having a carbs loving baby right here. Potato wedges are my favorite to snack on, and I can even have a plate full of them for my lunch.

To make delicious crispy baked potato wedges, you need good organic russet potatoes. Throw in the seasonings you like very generously and bake them until they are golden and crispy. Voila! You have the best wedges ever.

Key To Make Crispy Potato Wedges

The most important key to make the wedges crispy, depends on the type of potatoes you use. I highly recommend you to use the dusty Organic Russet Potatoes, over the pretty looking Waxy Golden Potatoes. You must be wondering why? The Russet Potatoes contain very low amount of moisture and the waxy ones are higher in moisture. So definitely try to get russet potatoes for the wedges.

The another important step is to cut the wedges into even size, so they bake perfectly and evenly.

Soak the Potato Wedges in Ice Cold water for 30 mins to 1 Hour. This will make sure that all the starch from the potatoes is removed. Then thoroughly patt dry them, and then coat them into the desired seasoning.

Seasoning the Wedges

You can season the potato wedges as you like. I usually season them with Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Oregano and Salt. But you can season them with dried rosemary, freshly minced garlic, smoked paprika, etc.

It all mainly depends on your taste palette. The only thing is that you season your potatoes generously and I promise they will taste amazing.

I most usually serve these potatoes with my Cajun Mayo dip. If you would like to try the recipe, I will leave the link here.
