So here's my first of the many Tiffin treats, baked new potato wedges recipe for 'T'.
So here's my first of the many Tiffin treats, Baked Italian Potato Wedges, which I am going to prepare for Nabeel. I plan to replace the French fries with this healthy and much tastier option. The Potato Wedges are made using minimal ingredients and are ready in a jiffy. You can play with the flavours depending on your child's taste buds. Try flavours like dried garlic flakes, pepper, mixed herbs, a local spice mix, etc. These wedges also work well as an after school treat and a vegetarian starter when paired with a rich flavourful dip.
Baked Italian Potato Wedges
1. 1 big potato (enough as one time Tiffin snack for an under 5 child)
2. Dried Oregano
3. Chilli Flakes
5. Vegetable Oil
Step 1 Wash and scrub the potato well. Cut it into wedges as shown below.
Step 2 In a bowl toss the potato wedges with oregano, chilli flakes, salt and generous amounts of oil. Let the wedges sit till you set the oven.
Step 3 Pre-heat the oven to 200C for 10mintues.
Step 4 Once the oven is ready, place the wedges on a baking tray and apply remaining marinade from the bowl over the wedges.
Step 5 Bake the wedges for a good 20 – 25min or till the potatoes are soft and cooked.
Step 6 Remove from oven and serve immediately or transfer to a tiffin box.
Step 7 You can serve a dip with the wedges. We enjoy the Baked Italian Potato Wedges as it is.
