Roasted Parmesan Potato Wedges

Roasted Parmesan Potato Wedges

I love potatoes! That phrase would have never come out of my mouth prior to a couple years ago. I used to hate potatoes with the exception of French fries! My cousin loved baked potatoes and would only eat baked potatoes. That meant that I was stuck with a lot of baked potatoes that I did not like or want. Ugh. Stupid baked potatoes. I still won’t eat a classic baked potato. It’s just not palatable to me still. I don’t really like mashed potatoes either, but I will at least eat those.

The type of potatoes that I like are fries, breakfast potatoes, roasted potatoes, and something like these roasted parmesan potato wedges. Oh man, potato wedges are what I live for! Add some freshly grated parmesan and some freshly chopped parsley, and I am set. I will eat these by the plateful with no regrets! 

I’m started that cooking club today! I’m really, really excited. It seems to be going well. They girls are stoked. I wish it had some more boys, since it’s important for them to be able to cook too, but one step at a time. I think these 8th graders will be loving these roasted parmesan potatoes. I even managed to snag an inexpensive toaster oven from Amazon! I’m stoked! This recipe is enough to serve 10 8th graders and 2 adults.
