Homemade Potato Wedges

Side Dishes
  • Homemade Potato Wedges2 large potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Olive oil for drizzling
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste 
  • Fresh herbs for garnish 

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Scrub potatoes and leave the skin on; cut into wedges. Place wedges in a large microwave-safe bowl and cook about 8 minutes. Take a fork and pierce the wedges — the fork should go in without resistance. Remove bowl from microwave. Add a tablespoon of butter to the potatoes and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Add garlic powder, Italian herbs, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Toss well. Line a baking tray with foil or parchment paper. Place wedges on tray in a single layer and bake about 7 minutes or until one side turns golden. Turn over and bake another 7-8 minutes. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve with ranch dressing or your favorite dipping sauce. Serves 2-4.
