Australian Style Potato Wedges

A few weeks ago Jared and I found a restaurant called "The Australian Grill." We loved it! I had a lamb burger, and Jared had an "Aussie Burger" complete with a kangaroo patty! Anyways we order Australian Potato Wedges. They were great! So we went there again and I made sure to take my time to try and figure out what they were seasoned with so I could try them. And this is the recipe I came up with. So if anyone from Australia is reading this, be nice, I am by no means saying this is how they do it in Australia, this is just my take on it.

Let's get started!

4 Red potatoes
Olive Oil
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Cumin
Salt and pepper

Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
2 TBS Sweet Chilli Sauce (you will find this in the Asian foods section)
2 TBS Heavy whipping cream

Preheat your oven to 385 degrees (I know that's weird but that's the temp that works). Cut your red potatoes into wedges (about an inch in thickness). Place them in a large bowl and toss them in olive oil until they are covered. Sprinkle them with the paprika, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper, and toss them until they are all evenly covered.

Place them on a baking sheet and bake them for 40 minutes. Half way through take them out and flip them, if it looks like your oven might be burning them turn the temp down.

Once they are done cut the thickest one in half just to make sure they are soft all the way through.

Dipping sauce: At the restaurant they serve it with this. Just whip together your sweet chilli sauce and cream until it is a yogurt consistency.

I have also heard they can be served with sour cream too. But you can always just use ketchup!

Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
