Directions

  1. A classic treat. Dead easy to prepare and cheap too. And packed full of nutrients if you leave the skins on.


  2. Use King Edward or Maris Piper potatoes, washed but with the skins left on – one large or medium potato will make about five or six wedges.


  3. Cut each potato in half, lengthways, then, depending on the size, cut each half into two or three wedges, again cutting lengthways. Too thick and they won’t cook through, too thin and they won’t provide a satisfying mouthful and will burn too easily.


  4. Pop your chopped up wedges in a food bag with a slosh of olive oil. Then seal the bag and shake so that every single wedge gets well coated with the oil (essential if you want to get that lovely crispiness).


  5. Place your oiled wedges on a baking tray and pop into a pre-heated oven at gas mark 6 (or 200ºC or 400ºF) and bake for at least 30 minutes, turning occasionally and making sure they’re all well cooked through.


  6. If you want your wedges to be more tangy, what about adding just a splash of chilli oil along with the olive oil when tossing the wedges at the start? Or sprinkle with paprika or grated parmesan cheese when the wedges have about 10 minutes more to cook.


  7. Serve with a traditional dollop of ketchup. Or mayonnaise given a twist with the addition of a bulb of crushed garlic stirred in, or a squeeze of lemon juice to taste. Or simply buy a pot of sour cream and stir in a few chives. Your choice.

Sounds lovely and can be healthy if you don't overdo the oil. Do not overheat olive oil as this causes it to produce carcinogens.
