You will find this potato recipe a great alternative to plain french fries, because you only need to bake them in the oven to get deliciously roasted wedges. Plus, the butter and herbs make them irresistibly tasty.
3 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 tablespoons butter, melted — I melt the butter in the microwave.
1 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
NOTE: Because this time I was cooking only a small quantity of potatoes, I prepared them directly on the baking tray. If you are baking a larger quantity, it may be easier to mix all the ingredients in a bowl; then just spread them on the baking pan.
Pour olive oil on the bottom of the baking tray and spread potato wedges evenly.
Sprinkle herbs and pour melted butter.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss potatoes making sure that each piece is evenly coated.
Bake until tender for 30 min at 180°C (350°F) in the middle rack of the preheated oven.
Now set the potatoes on the top rack to broil them at 230°C (450°F) for 5 min or until wedges are golden brown.
Your perfect, crispy, potato wedges are ready! Enjoy immediately.
For non-vegetarians: They are also the perfect side dish to any roasted or grilled fare.
