Homemade oven-cooked potato wedges are perfect for when your tastebuds are craving junk food but your better self tells you to go for a healthier choice. And I’m almost embarrassed to call this a recipe, it’s so quick and simple…

Paprika Potato Wedges

Potatoes6 medium-large potatoes
2 Tbsp olive oil
paprika to taste

Pre-heat oven to 425°F.
Scrub the potatoes well, but don’t peel them.
Cut each potato lengthwise into 6 – 8 wedges.
Toss with olive oil and sprinkle with paprika.
Spread in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake at 425°F for 20 – 30 minutes.

The exact cooking time will depend on the variety of potatoes you use (some have a higher moisture content than others) and on the size of the wedges. I like to flip them over after 10 minutes, to brown both sides evenly.

As an alternative to paprika, you can experiment with other spices such as garlic salt, onion powder, whatever flavoring is to your taste.

    Anne, I’m making these for supper tonight — going with your Cajun spice suggestion, as an antidote to a cold winter day!

    My kids love wedges. We ‘travel’ with them. One time we will have cajun spices, another Italian or Moroccan. They are such a good standby!
