Baked Potato Wedges with Parmesan and Garlic #SundaySupper



Oh potatoes, how do I love the? Let me count the ways  I love you mashed, I love you fried, I love you sauteed, I love you in casseroles, soups, and stews......

But I come by that love naturally because I was born in the midwest AKA Beef and Tatersville. My Grandpa and Dad were die hard meat potato lovers. To them, it wasn't a meal without potatoes. And because I was a Daddy's girl, I turned my nose up to taterless meals too.


It drove my Mom crazy! 

I have no idea why, she was a midwest girl too. But I guess the potato loving gene skipped her.



Fast forward, I am now living with someone that pretty much feels the same way my Dad did. 

Although he does love all things starchy, his first love is potatoes. 

I try to sneak a bit of green in here and there one him, but it usually gets pushed to the side and eaten only if he has room after the meat and potatoes.

But, unlike him, I do get bored of baked potato, tater tot, baked potato, tater tot, baked potato, tater tot. 

I mean, I am not saying I lose my love. But variety IS the spice of life. 

Correct?




But he always falls back to his love of a good ol' baked taters. 

So I decided that I would add a bit of a twist. Let's make one of my faves, french fries, and mix it up with his baked potato. But let's not be boring. 

Oh heck no!

Let's add some cheese and garlic.

Ummmm ya!

And that my dear foodies it what my inspiration was for these delicious little wedges of goodness.

He loved them, but I had no clue how much I would love them. I could have seriously made a meal just out of these wedges!

So, if you have a die hard potato lover in your life, make these bad boys ASAP. 

They may even make you jump on that tater bandwagon!!
