Homemade Potato Wedges

Homemade potato wedges taste so good and they are similar to chipper chips without the guilt of all those extra calories! I regularly make these to accompany any meal and the boys love them. It's important to dry the wedges well before drizzling with olive oil, as the starch in the potato will make the wedges stick to the baking tray ( this is a job I always give to the boys to do). For spicy wedges sprinkle with a little cajun mix or paprika before baking. For a more 'rustic' wedge scrub the potato well and leave the skin on.

450g potatoes (an old variety works best)
2tbsp olive oil
sea salt

1. Preheat the oven to 200° C/fan 180° C/gas mark 6.
2. Peel and cut the potatoes into similar size wedges.
3. Dry the wedges well with kitchen paper.
4. Place on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil- enough to lightly coat each wedge.
5. Sprinkle over some salt.
6. Bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 mins or until golden and cooked through.
Serve to accompany any meal or simply with a big dollop of ketchup as a really tasty snack!!
