I have made these brown sugar potato wedges a thousand times before and I've wanted to share the recipe for a really long time! They just can't seem to make it onto the table before being devoured by the people that occupy my household (myself included). Their irresistibly good, I'm telling you! I finally got a picture of them (minutes before they got finished off) and so I'm not going to postpone offering up this awesome recipe any longer!
They aren't as saturated with calories as you may think being that they are baked in the oven instead of being fried in oil. These will be the perfect treat to reward yourself for sticking to that New Years diet this week. As a side note, you can always do this same thing with sweet potatoes which will be just as delicious, I am sure. My favorite kind of recipes are the ones that are quick to prep but look like a million dollars on a plate and this is one of those. These potato wedges pair well with burgers, fish or even meat. I've made them as a side to chicken for the Friday night meal several times. Also, these can be cut into thinner matchstick shaped pieces to be served as fries if you'd like.
Brown Sugar Baked Potato Wedges
4 Medium Sized Potatoes ( I prefer Yukon Gold)
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
1/2 Tablespoon Salt
A Sprinkle of Pepper
1. Scrub your potatoes really well, or peel them if you'd like and cut them into wedges ( I honestly didn't know how the first time so I followed the instructions here.)
2. In a medium bowl combine the brown sugar, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mix them really well until they come together as a sauce and no longer separate. Using a whisk can help with this.
3. Lay the potatoes out in the bottom of a greased 9X13 baking sheet so that they are at least an inch apart on all sides. Try not to allow any of the potatoes to touch or overlap at all so that they can cook through evenly.
4. Preheat the oven to 400.
5. Spoon the brown sugar sauce over the potatoes coating each one with a half a spoonful or so.
6. Put the potatoes in the oven for about an hour, checking on them every fifteen minutes or so to be sure they aren't burning or drying out. You can cover the pan with some foil before putting them in the oven if you want them to cook a bit faster.
7. Remove them from the oven, allow them to cool before serving. I serve them with some ketchup but you can serve them with whatever dipping sauce you prefer.
Please do send me a photo of them if you cook them up in your home, that is if you manage to get one before they get finished off! ;)
