Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half, then lengthwise into wedges. Do not peel (unless you are on a low fiber diet). The wedges should be about ½-inch thick at the widest place. In a large bowl toss the potatoes with the rosemary and olive oil.
  3. Take a cookie sheet (non-stick preferably), and put in the oven for 5 minutes to heat up.  When it is hot, line with parchment paper and spread the oiled potatoes onto the sheet in a single layer.  Sprinkle with salt.
  4. Return to the oven and bake on a high shelf.  Turn the potatoes from time to time for even browning until they are tender and golden about 30 minutes.
