I like making homemade fries and potato wedges. Over the years, I've found myself using the same seasonings over and over, though. And that becomes boring.
I decided to shake things up a bit by changing my standard recipe a bit. In addition to some spices and herbs, I coated these babies with some panko bread crumbs. And wow! That one simple addition really turned the ordinary into something extraordinary.
Here's what you need:
4 potatoes, scrubbed well
1-2 TBSP olive oil
1 teas seasoned salt
1/4 teas celery seed
1/4 teas onion powder
dash of cayenne pepper
1 cup panko bread crumbs
Slice each potato into 8 wedges. I start by slicing the potato in half. Then each half gets sliced in half. And then once more to equal 8 wedges. Make sense?
Place the potato wedges in a large bowl. Combine the olive oil and spices. Pour over the potatoes and stir to coat each piece. Put the bread crumbs into a resealable plastic bag. Put a few wedges in the bag at a time and shake to coat. Lay on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring once or twice during that time.
