Oven Baked Potato WedgesI know, you think I’ve lost my mind. What could be better than french fries? And even bigger, tastier, crunchier potato. That’s what. These baked potato wedges are even better than french fries because there’s so much more deliciousness to go around. Not just because there’s more surface area but because baking helps the potato soak up all that goodness.

A couple of years ago we decided we were going to grow potatoes in the garden. We actually did it because I found a potato sprouting in the back of our pantry and figured what the heck. Did you know you can get almost 10 potatoes from 1 potato plant? Well my mind just spiraled from there and the next year I decided to plant a couple more.

Well, we ended up having a bunch of potatoes so I had to figure out something to do. So I made corn chowder, and potato soup and potato wedges. Woo hoo, potato wedges. Even if you are not growing these in your backyard (which you can, in a pot) this is a budget friendly dish no one can say no too. Well at least the crab lovers won’t say no to.

Making these potato wedges yummy is as easy as drizzling olive oil over it and sprinkling it with seasonings. I don’t know about you but I like easy. Especially, after a long day. I always like recipes I know my littles will eat happily.
