Spicy Baked Potato Wedges
Some like it hot, well I like it insanely hot. When I’m clueless about what to cook, I know that I won’t go wrong with spicy. I’ve always love baked potatoes, so I thought why not spice them up with a bit of cayenne pepper? The result is really blissful. I prefer baked potato wedges to deep-fried ones because they are crisp & not oily and most importantly, very easy to make. The only work you need to do is to slice the potatoes, coat them with seasonings, and then you let your oven do its magic. These wedges make both an excellent side-dish or finger food on its own.

- 200g roasting potatoes
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder (adjust according to your preference)
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 dried bay leaf (optional)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1. Scrub potatoes clean, dab dry with paper towel and slice lengthwise to wedges.
2. Coat potato wedges with extra virgin olive oil. Add cayenne powder, dried parsley, bay leaf and garlic powder. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Toss to mix well.
3. Arrange potato wedges one layer in an oven-safe tray and bake at preheated oven of 200°C for about 40 minutes, or until the potato skin is wrinkled.
For this recipe, I’m using dried parsley, cayenne and bay leaf from Honest Vanilla. They are 100% organic, aromatic and comes in nifty pretty little magnetic bottles that will stick onto any metallic surface (eg. fridge door). Thanks Min for the herbs sampling!
