It’s satisfaction to the hilt when you bite into a potato wedge that has some crunch on the outside and then sink your teeth down into the fluffy potato inside.
I have not made French fries in years because these Parmesan potato wedges are so easy to make and delicious with hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, steaks or about any meat. Just cut the potatoes into wedges, add the seasonings and bake. I made certain these were golden brown and covered well with the seasonings by turning them over in the pan a couple of times while baking. This also ensures that they will be cooked evenly.
These wedges are great and definitely a change from the run-of-the-mill potatoes. Add more paprika or garlic powder or even make them using chili powder ~ there are so many options! Lovely chunky potato wedges; they are the best!
By the way, I’m sure you can guess what shop the filet came from if you read the post before this one! One great meal!
