Branching from my last potato themed post I just had to share yet another one of my favorite potato recipes. This one is even harder to make while traveling here in Asia, because even if I were to get my hands on an apartment kitchen so many of them come without an oven! Hard to believe, right? No midnight cookie baking parties here in Asia. No lasagnas, breads, cheesecakes, pizzas, etc. No ovens! Even the stoves themselves are usually only two burners and sometimes are portable, so I guess asking for an oven would just be too much. With a full on modern newly built house, there probably would be an oven, but chances are slim to none we’ll be staying in one of those. So while the only potato craving I can fill is with french fries or my home fries, everyone out there with a fully functioning oven can make these guys. And oh they’re good… so good. The kind of good that you purposely forget how many potatoes you used and continue to chomp down on them until the entire tray is consumed. All the while you’re fighting against your brain, telling you that you’re full and must stop. Can’t stop though, not with these on the table. These are seriously the best oven roasted potatoes wedges ever. And they’re healthier than the fried version. These are perfectly soft on the inside yet crispy and crunchy on the outside – just the way a potato wedge should be. Too good to be served with ketchup alone. Mix that ketchup with Sriracha and mayonnaise to give these the sauce that they rightfully deserve.
What’s your secret to making crispy on the outside yet soft on the inside potato wedges? Am I missing anything?
