Roasted Potato Wedges

First things first: this is one of our favorite side dishes! Secondly, I feel like I should mention that I love Kentucky Fried Chicken’s fried potato wedges (anyone know what I’m talking about?!) I haven’t been there in ages but I read that they recently took them off of the menu. I won’t claim these to be a copycat recipe as my Roasted Potato Wedges are not fried so definitely different. BUT, they do satisfy my potato cravings… which are all the time. And if you are what you eat, I’m basically just a potato.

The whole family loves these. They make a great finger food for baby led weaning and it’s super simple to make. Potatoes, olive oil, garlic salt, black pepper and paprika. That’s it! Roasted Potato Wedges are my go-to side to go with meatloaf, BBQ ribs, steaks, etc.

Baby Led Weaning Tip

To make these suitable for baby led weaning, the wedges should be cut a bit thinner.

When slicing, make sure you cut the wedges no larger than 1/2 inch thick and that they are cooled down enough before serving.
