How to make perfect crispy potato wedges…
Firstly, you make sure you use quality potatoes. Most floury/waxy potato type would work for this recipe. Potato wedges can be cooked with skin on or off
Wash the potatoes well to get rid of dirt. Peel skin off if desired but this is not necessary
Cut the potatoes into even wedges as this allows them to cook evenly
You know how much I dislike bland food: Season these potato wedges like you mean it but don’t go overboard with the salt. You are better off with less salt in food as you can adjust to your liking after cooking. Add vegetable oil or any other oil of choice
It is important to add the wedges to the baking tray on a single layer to allow even baking time and crispier potato wedges.
Bake in the oven till they are golden and crispy. (flip the wedges over in between bake)
