Spicy Baked Potato Wedges

Spicy Baked Potato Wedges

Although I like potatoes, I don't tend to eat them very often, as I prefer to limit my consumption of carbohydrates. I recently had a craving for potatoes though and decided to make these baked potato wedges which also gave me an excuse to warm up the kitchen with the oven. This recipe turned out better than I imagined and I even went back for seconds. The addition of egg adds a bit of extra crunch to the wedges. A half cup or so of Parmesan cheese would also be a nice addition to this recipe. Dip the baked wedges in sour cream or salsa if desired.

Do you think that this recipe would work with sweet potatoes as well?

Hi Jerry;

Yes, I think this recipe would work very well with sweet potatoes too. The cooking time should be about the same.
