Garlic Herb Potato Wedges

Review by Lyndee:

Ingredients: (Makes 8 portions)
4 medium russet potatoes, scrubbed and rinsed
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced and mashed against the cutting board with the flat of a knife
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed fine
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Cut each potato in half lengthwise. Cut each half, lengthwise, and slice into wedges. Add the wedges to a large mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Toss to coat the potatoes evenly.

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the potato wedges, skin side down, on the foil. Be sure to space evenly, so they cook uniformly. Bake for 35 minutes, or until well browned, crusty edged, and tender. Serve immediately, sprinkled with more salt if desired.

These were pretty good. I didn’t have rosemary so I skipped it.  And I used garlic powder instead of cloves.  I liked the crispy outside and somewhat soft inside.  Good flavor. You could eat them plain or with fat free ranch of ketchup.  I paired these with a grilled pork steak, which nearly started my kitchen on fire but that's a story for another day.
