This is one of my favorite side dishes because it goes so well with burgers -turkey burgers in our house and it's really simple. It is a Rachel Ray recipe tweaked a bit.
(serves 4-6 as a side)
-3 medium sized all purpose potatoes (like russet)
-ground black pepper
-grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 450. Spray a big cookie sheet or pan (or whatever sizes you have). Cut potatoes into long wedges. I usually get around 8-9 wedges out of each potato. You don't want the wedges to thick or too thin- see the size I have mine in the picture. Arrange them on the sheet/pan and drizzle olive oil over them (just enough to coat). Then sprinkle with as much garlic powder, italian seasoning, and pepper as desired. Bake for 15-20 min. Flip over each potato wedge so the seasonings are on the bottom and sprinkle with parmesan to your liking. I am a cheese lover so the more the better! Cook another 10 min before taking out to cool for a few minutes.

I like to serve with ketchup and Eric perfers BBQ sauce but they are also good plain. These really are delish and better for you since they are BAKED. I can't eat fried food so this is a big plus for me! I think they taste just as good as fries from restaurants etc. plus they aren't greasy and you actually taste the potato! Now that I think about it this could be a great appetizer also... maybe served with some sour cream or ranch, yum! I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say you probably always have all of those ingredients in your kitchen except for the potatoes so thrifty as well :)
