Recipe: Potato Wedges
OK, here goes (it’s a slow afternoon and I’m taking a break anyway). I did threaten to do it. Here’s my recipe for Potato Wedges (as enjoyed by Wednesday night Shadowrun players). They’re fairly quick to prepare and make a nice snack or alternative to chips!
(from local co-op)
- Potatoes (largish), 2+ per person
- Rosemary (dried, or fresh if you’re that lucky)
- Olive oil/cooking oil (tablespoon)
- Garlic, 2 cloves
- Wooden spoon
- Baking tray
Put the oven on high (mk8 or 220 degrees depending on the dial). Let it heat up while you do the next steps.
Cut the potatoes into quarters and put them in a bowl. If the potatoes are very large cut them up so they’re roughly the same size.
Pour the oil over the potatoes and stir until the potatoes are covered with oil.
Chop the garlic into fine pieces and scatter of the potatoes. Stir the bowl again.
Sprinkle rosemary over the top of all the potatoes so that they are covered, but don’t drown them.
Sprinkle the salt and paper over them, and stir the bowl again.
Tip the whole bowl onto the baking tray and make sure the potatoes are spaced evenly across the tray. It is possible to add more salt and spices at this stage. If there is any oil left in the bowl, pour it on the tray too.
Put them in the oven for 45 minutes.
Remove and serve – let the wedges stand for a few minutes, as they will be very hot!
