Garlicky Baked Potato Wedges

Potato wedges, my lil one's favourite whenever we go to the famous fast food restaurant. Potato wedges are almost like French fries, its a finger food, and kid's favourite as much as like French fries. Usually potato wedges are prepared by slicing the potatoes as wedges without peeling the skin of the potatoes. They are often deep fried as well as baked. Many fast food restaurants sold them along with their sandwiches instead of French fries. Potato wedges are served along with cheese and mayonnaise here, but my kids love these potato wedges with barbecue sauce or else with sweet chilly sauce.


Potatoes wedges can be spiced up with  variety of spices, commonly paprika, salt and pepper, my today's baked potato wedges goes for crushed garlic cloves, thyme leaves, salt and pepper with a tablespoon of oil. Obviously baking potato wedges makes them less caloric when compared to deep frying. Sending these aromatic and herbed potato wedges to this week's Friendship 5 Series, an event by Geetha and Savitha as theme for this month is Fast foods for kids
