Well, I think I finally made a potato wedge lover out of my hubby! He has “liked” some that I’ve made, and a few quite a lot! But these in particular, he said he loved! All the better! Because baked potato wedges are one of my best friends! And these new “Garlic Asiago Potato Wedges” will come in very handy when I need something quick and easy, with no scrunching up of his nose! And I’m sure they’ll lend you a helping hand, too, when you’re tired, have too much going on, or just love them like I, …correct that, …WE do!
Though I adore homemade french fries, and rely (probably way more than I should), on simple baked potatoes as a side dish, the lovable and easy potato wedges help out as a side dish for just about anything I’m making. These proudly stand up to everything from a simple all-american burger, to an expensive cut of steak!
Who can resist beautifully golden baked, well seasoned, garlicky, cheese laden, potato wedges of goodness, right? I served this batch with a simple dipping sauce of sour cream with chives stirred in…and there was nothing “humble” about these!! You could go dipping in Ranch or blue cheese dressing, but, the plain sour cream with a little chives stirred in….OH man…. was the perfect accompaniment! Let what you made shine! I think that Ranch, especially, would only be a detraction, and not an addition of flavor.
And they really don’t need anything at all, except just your fingers and an appetite!! Which makes them the perfect appetizer or side for game day, too, because you can just lay out a platter-full with a dipping sauce in the center, next to whatever else you’re serving, and let everyone go to town on them!
And believe me. They WILL.
Heck. I’d just love another batch to munch on for no occasion at all.
Like now. 😉
