Heavenly Herb Roasted Red Potatoes

I recently posted about Brussels sprouts being a delicious addition to any meal. Well, the same goes for my Herb Roasted Red Potatoes! These crispy little suckers are absolutely scrumptious and are so easy to make!

What you'll need:
4 medium sized red potatoes
olive oil
salt
pepper
dried thyme
dried rosemary
dried sage
non-stick spray

To begin, rinse your potatoes and cut them in half, then cut them in half again, similar to how you would cut a lemon wedge.
Next, place them in a bowl and drizzle about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Go ahead and sprinkle on all your seasonings.  I prefer mine with extra, extra seasoning, but the amount is up to you.  I tend to do an equal amount of each.
Now it's time to get messy!  Get in there and mix those puppies!  I use my hands when mixing the potatoes because it helps get the seasoning all over each and every potato wedge!  Feel free to use a large spoon if you don't want to get your hands oily.
For an easy clean up, I line a cookie sheet with two layers of foil.  That way, all you have to do is roll it in a ball and toss it in your garbage can once you're done! Before placing the wedges on the foil make sure you spray the foil with some sort of non-stick spray. *This is an important step.*  If you skip this step, the crispy deliciousness will stick to the foil and you will become one sad panda.  Once sprayed, place each wedge in a line with one side down.  This is how they become crispy.
When the wedges are spread out, pop them into a 350 to 375 degree oven for 20 minutes.
The key in making these extra crispy is flipping them over after 20 minutes and letting them cook for an additional 20 minutes. If the side that was facing the foil is not crispy after the first 20 minutes, pop them back in for another 5 minutes and check again before flipping. 
Once all of your potato wedges are golden brown you know they are ready!  
Mmm! Don't they look scrumptious? If you are a fan of Greek yogurt/sour cream with your potatoes, I hiiiighly suggest you dip these bad boys in some salt and peppered Greek yogurt/sour cream! 
I hope you enjoy these yummy potatoes! Try it and let me know how it works out!
