Oven Baked Potato Wedges

 

     These seasoned, oven baked potato wedges are the perfect side for a cold beer. They are a better than french fries, since they are baked. Just another great and tasty alternative to popular french fries.    
I recommend that you part boil potatoes a few hours or a day in advance,   which helps them cook more quickly in the oven.
