OVEN ROASTED POTATO WEDGES
Side dishes can be my nemesis. It’s so easy to plain the “main dish” but finding a side dish that pairs well with our meal and all my kids love can sometimes be a tad difficult. These oven roasted potato wedges however are a favorite with everyone. They only take a few minutes to pull together and then they roast in the oven to a perfect golden brown with the slight crisp skin and tender insides. They would pair perfectly with our honey lime grilled chicken, philly cheesesteak sloppy joes ring, and our homemade sloppy joes.
