Potato Wedges - herbed, cheesy, spicy, salty. Accepted in any way. Can be made in a jiffy and rather than rely on store bought processed stuff, we enjoyed these as a quick afternoon snack. Any spices can be added to the seasoning. As elder one has taken a liking to really spicy stuff , we cranked it up a bit and enjoyed it. For my little one, I made one batch with just salt and a dash of jeera (cumin powder). Either way we liked it. Make it and serve it as it is or with burger / sandwiches. A great party idea too !
