Crikey. When I was at school, a wedgie was something a bully did to your underpants, so you can imagine my surprise at Sensi’s suggestion of Burger Me and a wedgie. Why, the very thought brought tears to my eyes. However, once the confusion was cleared up, I felt much better. Potato Wedgies are dead simple.
- Olive Oil
First off, you need to par bake the potatoes. You could do it in the oven or the microwave. Personally, I don’t have a microwave; not after I read a story about a guy who slowly cooked his innards because he took the door of his microwave. He apparently detested wasting all that time opening and closing the door…
Par baking will obviosly depend on the size of potato, but seeing as they will need to be fairly big, about 30 mins should do it.
When they are done, whip them out and let them cool down. Then smear them with plenty of olive oil and roll them in Maldon Sea salt. Bung them back in the oven on full blast to crisp them up.
Then just cut them into wedgy type shapes, a splash more olive oil, then back in the oven for 10mins or so to brown them off.
And there you go.
