I have at least ten friends who have given up fried food for their New Year’s Resolutions. Some have also given up food entirely (juice cleanses personally scare me). So when I wanted to have everyone over for weekend burgers, I knew I needed a good side dish that wouldn’t leave anyone wishing for their beloved fries. The solution these crispy potato wedges. The secret is a really hot oven and of all things egg whites. Coat the potatoes in egg whites and spices before baking and you can get a really crispy potato wedge. No one missed their fries and three friends gave up their juice cleanses mid meal. Oops.
Also if you want a lower point/calorie dish, this can easily work for 4 servings with everyone getting about half a potato’s worth of wedges.
