Potato Wedges

These freshly made potato wedges are so simple to make and can cook in the oven while you make something to go with them. They're also tasty, which is a good thing for food. 


  • 6 medium sized potatoes, washed and any bad bits cut out
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 tsp chopped herbs, thyme or rosemary work well


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  2. After washing the potatoes, cut them into wedge shapes which are no more than 2cm thick on their thick edge. You can peel the potatoes as well, but I prefer the wedges with skins on, so only peel them if the skins are in a bad condition.
  3. Place the wedges in a large bowl and add the oil and the herbs.
  4. Use your hands to mix the potatoes well, ensure that every wedge has a thing coat of oil.
  5. Lay wedges out on a greased baking tray.
  6. Place in the oven and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, turning the wedges over after 10 minutes.
  7. Serve with something moist to dip them in, like a salsa or a thick stew.
Serves 2, easily multiplies up to more.
