Baked Potato Wedges with Italian Dressing

IMG_6405

The Italian dressing bakes into these potatoes giving them a subtle flavor perfect for enjoying french fry style or as a welcome side to chicken, beef or fish!

Baked Potato Wedges with Italian Dressing

Line a baking sheet with sides with aluminum foil

Preheat oven to 375.

Slice 4 large russet potatoes into wedges (about 6-8 per potato).

Drizzle the foil with a 1/2 cup of favorite Italian salad dressing.

Place your potatoes into the pan, toss around to coat with the dressing.

Arrange potato wedges in a single layer not overlapping.

Pour an addittional 1/4 cup dressing over top of the potato wedges. (So, you'll need about 1/2 cup of dressing total.  Add more if you like.)

Place in the oven for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes turn up heat to 425 and cook an additional 10 minutes or until fork tender and crisping.

Using a spatula, carefully remove potato wedges from the pan and sprinkle with kosher or sea salt to taste.

Garnish with fresh chives if desired.

Delicious plain or why not serve with any of the following:  French onion dip, hot cheese dip, ranch, blue cheese dip, chimichurri sauce or good old fashion ketchup :)

Sounds like a great idea...I'm always so tempted to drench potatoes in tons of butter, cream, etc. Good to get flavor without such indulgence!

I like this idea for the baked wedges and your presentation made a pretty simple dish look special.
