Comments

Honestly these are delicious with the seasonings or with just oil and salt.  My family loves roasted potato wedges!

Wow, these were so great!  We will for sure make them again and again.  The kids were just as happy as with fries and they liked the spice.  I did have them add the spices and oil to the bowl to cover them and we added half the paprika and a dash of chili powder.

This is a very good recipe.  I like to cut the potatoes in smaller pieces so they cook more quickly.  I usually halve the chili powder and paprika in this recipe when I am making it for younger children.
