Cricket's Spicy Potato Wedges
These potato wedges are soooo good. I also substitute sweet potatoes sometimes. That sweet and spicy taste mixed together is really great.
Spicy Roasted Potato Wedges. * 5 russet potatoes cut in 1/2 wedges (about 3 1/2 lbs.) * 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil * 1 Tbsp. paprika * Salt and Pepper to taste * 1 tsp. cayenne pepper * 1 tsp. dried thyme * 1 clove garlic minced. (I use the kind in the jar because I hate messing with garlic)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In large bowl combine potatoes, oil, paprika,salt, pepper,cayenne and thyme. Toss well to coat.
Divide potatoes between 2 rimmed baking sheets spreading out in a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and flip potatoes over. Sprinkle with garlic. Put pans bake in oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
**NOTE** The first time I made these I cut the potatoes a little thicker than I should have and they took a little longer to cook to be tender. Just poke them with a fork to make sure they are done to your likeness.
