An awesomely easy potato recipe

My husband is a potato connoisseur. Seriously. I honestly believe if he could just live on potatoes alone he would do it. As a result, I have become an encyclopedia of potato recipes. Here's a delicious and incredibly easy one I'd like to share with you!

Cheesy Potato Wedges


2-3 Rustic Potatoes
Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
Olive Oil
Black Pepper
Bacon Bits (optional)

Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. Put a shallow layer of olive oil in a tin roasting pan. Put the pan with the olive oil in it into the oven for a few minutes to heat the oil up. Wash potatoes then cut them in half, then halves again until you get a somewhat thin potato wedge. Place wedges out evenly into the warmed oil, sprinkle with parsley and black pepper as desired. Bake for 20 minutes.

Now, at this point you can either leave the wedges seasoned with just the parsley and black pepper. Or, when there are 3 minutes left you can take them out and cover them with cheese and bacon bits then put them back in the oven for the remaining few minutes. It's incredibly unhealthy but absolutely delicious.

So easy right! This recipe is great because you can use it as an appetizer, a side, or just a snack.
