Potato Wedges

When I was pregnant with my son, Kristopher all I craved (whenever I could eat, assuming I was not throwing up) potato wedges, and I must admit I did not have the best mind set when it came to food; I would have KFC potato wedges, or Fry's (aka Kroger). I want to make sure I am giving my family the best ingredients and foods possible, even if they may be considered "bad" for you (aka pies and sweets). I needed to come up with a plan on how to make potato wedges without all the nasty crap added from those places. For some odd reason all I have been craving, yet again, is potato wedges.. Well I came up with what I thought was the best for what I had, and they tasted amazing!! On to the recipe, enough mumble jumbo!

You Will Need:

5 Pound Bag Organic Potatoes
1 Stick Organic Butter
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese, Fresh Grated
1/2 tbsp Organic Paprika
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Organic Garlic Granulates
1 tsp Organic Onion Granulates

Dice your butter, and place it into a glass 9' x 13' pan that is oven safe. Melt the butter slightly, the rest will melt in the oven; which is good it will keep the potatoes from sticking while they cook

In a big zip-lock bag, place all your dry ingredients and mix together, set aside

Wash your potatoes very well, no dirt is good! *As you see my husband is my potato scrubber!*

Peel, and cut potatoes into wedge shape (I could not get that pictured, sorry) place the wedges into the dry mixture bag *Kailee did that here*

Shake the bag until all the potatoes are fully coated with the mixture, as you can see here

Dump the potatoes onto the glass baking dish, and cook in the oven at 375 degrees for 60 minutes, making sure to turn them at 30 minutes. After 60 minutes, check to see if they are soft enough and have even crisp to them, if not up the temperature and continue to cook in 10 minutes intervals, turning after every 10 minute 

Do they not look BEAUTIFUL!! Nice and golden brown, with amazing crispy edges

My homemade chicken strips recipe pairs amazingly with these potato wedges!
