Crispy Potato Wedges

Last night we had sloppy joes and these potato wedges. I cheat on the sloppy joes, I use manwich, but I really like this recipe for potato wedges because it's easy to change the spices to suit your mood.

Crispy Potato Wedges

1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp each basil, thyme, oregano
1/4 tsp paprika
4 to 6 potatoes, cut in wedges ( I really like to use the little red or golden butter potatoes. And if you use these little potatoes I increase the # to about 6-8 depending on # of people)
1/2 c parmesan cheese

Mix oil and seasoning in a plastic bag. Place cut potatoes in bag and shake. Dump potatoes onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and arrange in a single layer. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on potatoes and bake an additional 15 minutes. Serve hot.

* I sometimes even skip the other seasonings and just do these with Mrs. Dash.

We love these with taco seasoning and dried cilantro leaves or Johnny's Salad Seasoning with extra parmesan cheese. They go with almost anything, the kids love them and if you leave the skins on the potatoes they are actually good for you!
