- 4 large potatoes washed and cut into wedges

Potato wedges are always delicious and so simple to make! You can get creative with the seasoning, fill them with a variety of ingredients, and serve them as an appetizer, side dish, snack or party food. For this recipe I kept it simple and used paprika and lemon, a perfect match! Now mix that combo with some potatoes, top with melted cheese, and you have yourself a great snack that the whole family will enjoy.
I use Spanish paprika with a pinch of cayenne pepper because heat is a must in my house! But you can use any kind of paprika and omit the cayenne if you don't like spicy food. Cooking with lemons is about as common in my house as cooking with salt... I love the fresh taste lemons bring to the table, and on these wedges it kinda makes them perfect.
