Potato wedges are a delicious side dish that goes well with most other dishes. They are much simpler to make than fries as they can be baked and there is less slicing involved.
To prepare and cook your potato wedges:
Preheat your oven to 200˚C/400˚F/gas 6. Put a large pan of salted water on to boil.
Scrub the potatoes clean and get rid of any gnarly bits. Cut the potatoes into chunky wedges. Add to the pan of boiling water and parboil for 8 minutes.
Drain in a colander and leave to steam dry for a couple of minutes.
Transfer to a roasting tray and add a good lug of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss together so all the wedges are coated in the oil then spread out in one layer.
Cook in the hot oven for 30 minutes until golden, crisp and cooked through.
Delicious served with steak or chicken.
