Potato Wedges for Babies, Toddlers and Adults

Hmm.  Potato wedges.  Not going to win any health awards but if it's a choice between chips and wedges, then wedges aren't bad.  Lower fat and using lovely olive oil.

Potato Wedges - ok for baby led weaners and babies on finger foods serves 1 adult or child easily; readily doubled, tripled etc...


1 Baking Potato, cut into wedges 1/2 inch or just over 1cm across
A sprinkling (approx 1/4 tsp) mild smoked paprika (not hot smoked unless you want it spicy.  Be warned it's not always clear from the packaging, at least in the UK!)
2 tsp olive oil


Mix, chill till ready to cook.  I didn't realise until very recently that you could prepare these and chill, covered in a fridge and the potatoes wouldn't go black.  Well now I do!  Great for being able to prepare in those 5 mins snatches of time you have here and there.

Cook in a preheated oven at 200oC / 400F for 30-45 mins or until crisp and cooked through (don't cook them until they're too crisp for babies). Cooking time depends on size and the amount in the tray.  I cooked some for my son just using one potato widely spaced on a tray and they were easily done in 30 mins but when I cooked about 6 potatoes across two very big baking trays they took nearer 45.

Allow to cool enough to be safe for your child to eat.  Serve with a dip and salad or as a side dish for something else; sausages, stews or baby chilli would be good.  Great party food.

I've linked this up to Crisp Photo works in a hope to improve my standards!!!
