Potato wedges are so unappreciated. They are really a bomb side dish! And they are too easy to make. My recipe tastes exactly like the ones my family gets from a local restaurant. They are baked, but you wouldn’t believe it by taste alone. I’ll show you how I make crispy potato wedges in your oven!
