Oven Baked Wedges

Some weekends I will fix a really great, complex meal with a lot of ingredients and hours spent in the kitchen. However, this weekend, it was all about taking it easy! So today I am going to share one of the recipes my family uses for oven baked potato wedges.

Ingredients:                                                   Preheat Oven Temperature: 375 degrees
6 Large Baking Potatoes
1 stick of Butter
1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons Chili Powder
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder or Flaked Onion

Thoroughly wash 6 large baking potatoes. 
Place 1 stick of butter on a large baking tray and place in oven to melt.
While the butter is melting, prepare the wedges. 
Cut each potato into 8 wedges.
Immediately place in a large bowl of cold water to prevent
turning and assist in adhering of dry mixture.

In a resealable plastic bag, combine all of the dry ingredients. Shake to thoroughly combine.
Place half of the potatoes into the mixture and shake to coat. Remove coated wedges and place on the buttered pan. Repeat with remaining wedges.

Bake wedges in oven for 45-60 minutes. The cooking time will vary
depending on thickness of wedges and oven temperature.
If wedges begin to get too dark before completely done, cover with
aluminum foil and continue cooking.
*Note: This recipe can be kept warm in the oven on a setting of 200 degrees covered with foil for up to 2 hours.
