Tip: Great Potato Wedges

Seasoned potato wedges are always a hit. Scrub your favourite kind of potatoes and slice them into wedges. Roll them in 2 tsp. of Olive Oil and your favourite seasoning (Greek, Cajun, Oregano, Parmesan, etc. My fav is Italian with a sprinkle of Chili Pepper seeds). Bake them at 350 degrees F until they are soft in the middle and crispy on the outside. The length of cooking time depends of the thickness of the potato, usually 30-45 minutes.

Question: Breaded Potato Wedges Recipe

I was so excited to see this topic come in because my boyfriend absolutely loved these growing up and always got them from the convenience store by his house. I have a question though, does anyone have a recipe for these with breading? I'm pretty sure that the ones he used to get actually had a breading on them.
