Crispy Potato Wedges Recipe Is a Hearty Homemade Snack That Bakes in 15 Minutes

Oven-baked spuds are served with a red pepper mayo dipping sauce that makes them more delicious

As a French fry fan, I enjoy noshing on hot and crunchy fries when my salty cravings hit. The downside is that making them from scratch can be messy between dodging grease splatters and transferring the fries to a plate. Luckily, this Crispy Potato Wedges recipe allows me to whip up and enjoy some semblance of fries in a hassle-free way. It uses baking potatoes, which are cut into wedges and coated them in oil and seasonings. The wedges are baked until they’re golden brown and tender. Afterwards, the baked wedges are served with a red pepper mayo dipping sauce. The end result is a batch of crispy wedges that are even more delicious when dunked into the sweet and creamy sauce. 

Baking potatoes are starchy and can withstand the high oven temperature. But, feel free to use sweet potatoes instead for a nutrient boost. Tell us your thoughts on this recipe in the comments below!
