Ever need a bit of inspiration with potatoes??

Sometimes in my house they are one of the few things left in the fridge!  Baking takes too long in the oven, boiled are a bit boring, mash is for winter.  Fried potatoes are one of my favourite ways to have new potatoes, and I don’t have a deep fat fryer, so I don’t make chips.  Here’s a recipe for baked potato wedges – cheap, quick to cook and delicious with savoury, herby flavours.Baked potato wedges before cooking

Serves 4

4 large floury potatoes – Desiree or Rooster are good

1 tsp vegetable bouillon powder

1 tbsp cooking oil

baked potato wedges after cooking

1/2 tsp each chopped thyme & rosemary.

  1. Cut each potato into 8 wedges & place in a roasting tin.  Turn the oven to 200C/400F/Gas6.
  2. Sprinkle over the vegetable powder, herbs and drizzle with oil.  Give everything a good mix together with your hands to make sure the wedges are evenly covered.
  3. Put the potatoes into the oven and roast for 30 min or until cooked and crispy round the edges, turning half way through.
  4. Serve hot.
