There is something magical about potatoes. For some, they are an unhealthy, white starch- but for a broke twenty-something cook, they are a versatile, affordable delight. I love that you can use potatoes for so many different meals and in so many ways!
My boyfriend had been talking about potato wedges for a while, so I decided to make some of our own! I usually just make oven-roasted potatoes- not much different right? Wrong. There is something especially delicious about potato wedges- maybe it is the fluffy potatoes inside the crisp coating, or maybe it is the nostolgia of eating them with ketchup or BBQ and being reminded of your childhood. Either way, this is something you need to try.
