Homemade Wedges

Homemade Wedges

Serves: 6

Points per serve: 2

1 kg potatoes, cleaned but not peeled

cooking spray

2 tbs oregano

1 tbs sweet paprika

Preheat oven to 200 deg C, 400 deg F.

Cut potatoes into wedges (normally 8 wedges per potato).

Parboil in a saucepan of water for 10 minutes or microwave for approx 5 minutes in a small amount of water. The potatoes should be soft but not cooked through. Drain well.

Line a baking tray with foil and generously coat with cooking spray. Place potatoes on baking tray, coat with cooking spray and sprinkle with the oregano and the paprika, tossing to coat and then lay in a single layer on the tray.

Cook for 20 - 30 minutes or until golden. Turn once during cooking.

Hint - you can actually use any herbs and spices that you wish depending on the flavour... taco seasoning is also a good sprinkle.
