Baked Potato Wedges


2 large russet potatoes

olive oil



old bay spice (optional)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Scrub potatoes clean, no need to peel them!  Cut potatoes in half lengthwise, and then cut each half into thirds.  If the wedges are long, you can cut them in half too. 

Place potato wedges onto a baking pan.  Drizzle potatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Toss to coat the wedges.

Arrange potatoes in a single layer, cut side down.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes and flip potatoes to the other cut side.  Bake additional 15 to 20 minutes.  The potato wedges will be browned and crisp on the outside and tender inside. 

Season with additional salt and old bay if desired. 

Serves 2 to 4.
