There are also a few things which you should keep in mind while you are baking your potatoes. You should avoid russet potatoes. Russets are a starchy potato, best used for something which doesn’t have to hold its shape. You should preheat your baking sheet since this allows the potatoes to start cooking almost immediately, once you put them into the pan. Don’t be afraid to use the oil here.
Obviously, potatoes shouldn’t be swimming in an inch of oil, but the more you use them, the greater frying effect it will have on them and thus a crisper crust. This crispy wedges potato recipe is easy to make and a perfect side dish for dinner. Make this for your children or just enjoy them by yourself.
