            I wish I still had that younger metabolism that burned off everything I was eating quickly. I would be in heaven if I could sit and eat these yummy parmesan crusted potato wedges. Instead, I serve them as a side dish with our dinners.

Sometimes I will make them as an appetizer to bring to parties and other events. Getting past the French fry addiction is a tough one, but I am working on it.

            I have to tell you that these are very well worth making. The awesome taste of garlic and parmesan make the little bit of work you put into them a task worth completing.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            What is the easiest way to cut these potatoes?

I slice them in half lengthwise, then I slice each half in half. Finally, cut the quarters in half. You should have a total of 16 pieces. Cut less if you want thicker wedges.

            Is ketchup the best dip for these wedges?

There is such a huge variety of dipping sauces that you could use for wedges, yes to the ketchup, there is also ranch, blue cheese, salsa or whatever you like. I had honey mustard on mine today.

            What kind of potato should I use?

Russets seem to be the best potato. They hold up well and taste great! Red potatoes are a sweeter type and much softer when baked. You want a potato to hold up through the baking and the dipping.

            Can I leave out the Italian Seasoning and use Cayenne?

That would definitely add a layer of heat. Yes you could leave out the Italian Seasoning if your choose.
