One can never have too many potato recipes...
Why these Golden Potato Wedges are a must-try:
1. Yukon gold potatoes are lower in starch than the standard Russet, which means you can eat more. Seriously.
2. These babies are 'handsome-cut' which means the skin stays on. Less work for you, but they crisp beautifully in a hot oven, roasting into a burnished and translucently blistered exterior.
3. The herbed seasoning blend of dill, parsley, sea salt, and pepper is a winning combo.
3. The sauce. Say bye-bye to basic ketchup because Hot Honey Mayo is 100% more tasty and hard to resist.
Other herb duos can be used to season the potatoes, like oregano/sage or cilantro/basil.
Notes: Mayonnaise is Hellmann's light.
GOLDEN POTATO WEDGES WITH HOT HONEY MAYO
Ingredients: 5-6 medium Yukon gold potatoes, 1 tbsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. sea salt, 1 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. dried parsley, 1 tsp, dried dill, and fresh chopped parsley (optional). For the Hot Honey Mayo: 1/2 cup mayonnaise, one large garlic clove minced, a pinch of sea salt, 2 tbsp. honey, 1 tbsp. Sriracha, 1 tsp. red chili flakes.
1. Rinse the potatoes and slice lengthwise into wedges, leaving the skin on. Place into a bowl and cover with cold water for 30 minutes. Drain and press/pat dry, then place back into the bowl. 2. Preheat the oven to 425*F and line one large or two medium baking sheets with parchment paper. 3. Toss the wedges with olive oil, salt, pepper, dill, and parsley. Lay each wedge flat on the baking sheet, in rows, leaving a small space between each one. 4. Roast for 15 minutes, then turn wedges over and roast for 15 minutes longer, or until desired browning is reached. (Alternatively, you can air-fry at 400*F for 15-20 minutes.) 5. While the wedges cook, make the Hot Honey Mayo. Stir together mayo, salt, and minced garlic. In a separate bowl, stir together the honey, Sriracha, and red chili flakes. Give it quick warming in the microwave for 25 seconds or so. (This helps the chili flakes infuse heat into the honey.) Stir the honey into the mayo. 6. Remove potato wedges and serve immediately with a scattering of fresh parsley, if you like, alongside the Hot Honey Mayo.
Tips 1. Crispy oven potatoes are all about removing the starch and starting with a dry potato. Step one is important.
2. While turning the wedges over seems finicky, it means that the baking pan's heat touches another surface for browning. Better.
