Spicy Potato Wedges

When we are baking, we like to use the whole oven capacity, so we make a few dishes at the same time. This recipe is a great one to do as it's so easy. All that's needed are a few ingredients plus a non-stick baking tray and an already hot oven!

As is customary with our recipes... ingredients are kept to a minimum. Quantities are made up depending on how many we are feeding and the amount of potatoes that we have to use. This batch was made for three, to accompany the pastryless quiche we have blogged about before. So, sous chef J gathered the potatoes, oil, ground cumin, paprika and salt and pepper together. (Chilli flakes can also be added).
The potatoes were cut into wedges, placed in a large bowl and had oil drizzled over them (liberally). They were then mixed well. Next, plenty of ground cumin, paprika and seasoning were added. Again, the potatoes were mixed to ensure an even coating of spices. This is the point where we sometimes add chilli flakes - great if you like a little extra zing!

After placing on a preheated non-stick baking tray, they were cooked in the oven at about 180ÂșC for 10-15 minutes when they were turned over quickly before being returned to the oven for another 10-15 minutes (or until cooked to your liking). This is what we ended up with....
...delicious, crisp, spicy potato wedges.

We serve with tomato ketchup, salsa or avocado dip... they don't last long here.
