Oven-baked potato wedges

Oven-baked potato wedges.. I like to flavor them any way I want. This is a simple and no mess recipe. Feel free to spice them up.. :))

I used 6 russet potatoes (or potato type of your choice). Wash and pat dry. Place the whole potatoes (do not poke) into microwave-safe covered dish. Microwave on HIGH for 3 to 4 minutes. Let them cool before you cut them. Then cut each potato lengthwise into 8 even wedges. Coat wedges with 5-6 tablespoon of olive oil.

For the seasonings, I have chosen; 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon dry basil, 1 teaspoon dry thyme, 1/4 teaspoon cumin powder. Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Mix with 1 teaspoon of cornstarch. You can use fresh herbs if you like. I do not have fresh ones so the dry ones works. Then coat the wedges with the seasonings.

Arrange the potatoes and garlic in a single layer on a baking sheet. Do not let the fries touch while on the baking sheet, let some space between them, otherwise they will steam and become soggy.
Bake for 10 minutes in a preheat oven at 400 degrees F until the potatoes are crisp, rotate and cook an additional 10 minutes until dark golden brown on all sides.

Transfer to a plate and serve with mayo or any dipping of your choice. :))
