Sometimes my desire for french fries is simply overwhelming. I just need some crispy potatoes in my life.
This are an easy fix that won’t ruin your healthy eating intentions! By baking these in olive oil instead of frying them in who-even-knows-what, oven baked potato wedges are a spud treat you can feel good about.
- 4 medium potatoes, sliced thinly into steak fries
- 2 tbsp. olive oil (some will be lost in coating the bowl)
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- cayenne pepper powder
Place sliced potatoes in a large bowl and toss to coat with oil. Sprinkle seasonings to meet your taste preferences. I like strong flavors so I sprinkle the top layer of potato wedges until totally coated before tossing once again to distribute. Spread out coated potato wedges on a wire rack in a baking sheet so that potatoes are not overlapping.
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until tender. If outsides are not crisping, bump the oven up to broil the last few minutes.
Part of what makes these so great is that you can alter the spice blend to fit your favorite flavor profile. Baking potato wedges at home also allows you to control how much salt is added into the mix, which is a major pitfall of fast food fries.
