Rustic Potato Wedges

First of all, please excuse the poor quality of my picture! We were about to watch the Super Bowl so I didn’t have much time except to grab my iPhone and snap a quick shot. Speaking of the Super Bowl, are you into it? The two sports I mainly watch are basketball (LA Clippers) and Soccer/European Football (FC Barcelona), but not really football. This year we got into the hype because we randomly caught the semi-final games and realize we had to take part in the Seahawks vs the Patriots. And WOW what a game it was! We were rooting for Seattle (the character of their team is awesome) and well…if you saw the game or had anything to do with sports around that time, you would know that we were pretty let down. What a bummer! (If you didn’t hear about it, the Seahawks were about to win, like seriously so so close, I think four feet away from getting a touchdown solidifying their win, and they made a dumb awful pass and lost the ball, thus, losing the game!)

So food! I usually buy a big bag of potatoes when I go grocery shopping, because why not, they’re so cheap and easy to use! But since there is only two of us usually, and we don’t have potatoes all that much, they often get to a point where I realize I have to use them up quick! This recipe is amazing for that! These wedges work great as a side for anything, especially summer bbq’s! You can even try peeling them and cutting them into typical fry shapes so that they won’t be “rustic” looking. I think the rustic look is super trendy right now, and…I’m lazy 😀 Not lazy lazy, but if I don’t have to, I don’t prefer to spend an extra 15 minutes peeling potatoes and cutting them just right. So not lazy, more like…calculated with my time. Haha fine, that’s just a complicated way of saying lazy!

RUSTIC POTATO WEDGES RECIPE

These are so quick, easy, and amazingly delicious too!

|      Prep Time: 10 minutes      |      Cook Time: 40 minutes      |      Total Time: 5o minutes      |

Serves 4



INGREDIENTS:

4 Large Potatoes
3 Tbsp Oil (Canola or Olive)
1 Tbsp Seasoning Salt (to taste)

DIRECTIONS:

Step One: Preheat oven to 400F.

Step Two: Wash the potatoes well with warm water. Cut each potato into quarters, slicing it in half lengthwise and in half widthwise. Then slice each quarter as you would an apple, slicing it lengthwise into wedges (1 quarter should = 4 – 6 wedges). Note that the thinner you slice them, the quicker they’ll cook, but make sure you make them thick enough to contain some warm tender potato inside.

Step Three: Toss the potatoes into a bowl and toss with oil, seasoning salt, and/or any other seasoning that you want.

Step Four: Place the potatoes onto a baking sheet in a single layer.

Step Five: Bake in oven for 40 minutes to 1 hour , until browned and tender.

Step Six: Eat them while they’re still warm and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. You can also dip them in ketchup or your favourite steak sauce for extra flavour…Yum!
