These fabulous potato wedges get a spicy kick from garlic salt, pepper and some chili flakes.

They are easy to make and really pack a punch in terms of flavor.

Spicy Potato Wedges

 

Ingredients

  • 6 russet potatoes or other baking potatoes, cut into wedges (do not peel)
  • olive oil (regular or extra virgin)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (2 ml)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper (2 ml)
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley (5 ml)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (1 ml)
  • dash red chili flakes

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400ºF (or 200ºC).

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix together the potato wedges and a small amount of oil. Add the garlic salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, parsley, salt and red chili flakes, mixing to coat evenly. Place on a cookie sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes.

Step 3

If you want a crisper skin on the potatoes, broil them for a few minutes at the end of the cooking time.

Serves 4 to 6.

Creamy Garlic and Parmesan Cheese Dip

  • 1/2 cup light sour cream (125 ml)
  • 1/2 cup caesar salad dressing (125 ml)
  • 1/8 cup parmesan cheese, grated (25 ml)

To make the dipping sauce combine sour cream, dressing and cheese together in a small bowl. If you really like it hot, add a few drops (or several) of hot sauce.

Serve the potato wedges with the dip on the side.

Notes:

  • You can use vegetable oil instead of olive oil. I use olive oil because it is so healthy for us and adds a nice taste. Use whatever oil you prefer that tolerates cooking at a high heat.
  • Vary it up a bit. You can also use onion salt, cayenne pepper, or even a bit of dried oregano if you want.
