Salt, Pepper & Paprika Potato Wedges

I’ve been making these spicy potato wedges for so long, I can’t even remember (most likely I was still in college.)
To be honest, I can’t believe that after all these years of blogging I haven’t told you about them yet, you should revolt or something. Just kidding, please don’t.
I don’t even remember if I found the recipe somewhere or someone told me about it or if I just experimented on my own.
It’s as simple as it gets: Potatoes cut into wedges, oil, salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder, pop in the oven, and voilà: awesomely crispy, packed-with-flavor, potato wedges.

Salt, Pepper & Paprika Potato Wedges

This is the perfect healthier option to french fries and since they're baked you can eat more than your fair share of.
Chunky savory wedges that are a real delight and perfect for busy weeknight meals. They’re so good, they taste like what you’d get from a restaurant.

Roasting the potato wedges at a high heat makes them perfectly crunchy on the outside, while remaining soft and fluffy on the inside.
The combination of spices adds bright and sharps flavors and using just a bit of oil makes them less oily in taste and, of course, much healthier than deep fried.

These Salt, Pepper and Paprika Potato Wedges are a perfectly versatile side dish that works with anything from steak to salmon.
They are definitely a crowd-pleaser and believe me when I say that these are so much better than any store bought frozen potatoes you can ever buy.
