Laura and Nick’s potato wedges

We made potato wedges last night using only raw ingredients and raw inspiration. Seriously, no recipe. It’s unusual for me to make up a recipe but the potato wedges turned out so well that I might just make a habit of it.

Potato wedges

  • Potatoes – allow one large or two medium per person – we used orla but any roasting-type variety would do
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika powder
  • Chilli powder
  • Olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half, then cut the halves into thick wedges. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Add a good sprinkle of paprika powder and chilli powder. Mix it all up with your hands until the wedges are well coated.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over, about one tablespoon per potato or a bit less if you are doing loads of wedges. Mix it all up again.
  4. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper (very important, otherwise they will stick). Place the wedges in one layer on the sheet. Bake the wedges for 40-50 minutes until cooked through, turning them over after about 25 minutes.
