Potato Wedges

As a little girl growing up on a farm, we ate potatoes at every meal. From mashed (my dad’s favorite), to baked, to scalloped potatoes and ham. They were considered a staple in our diet. Then along came the great debate on the benefits of potatoes (good for you, bad for you). In my opinion, potatoes do have health benefits to offer. They are high in fiber, contain Vitamin B6 and are loaded with potassium. It is all about how you prepare the potatoes and how often you consume them. This recipe is a favorite of our grandchildren.
