"Smashed" Wedges

  2. Place Cavendish Farms® Garlic and Rosemary Potato Wedges in a single layer on a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes and remove from oven. 
  3. Place potato wedges in a single layer on the cutting board. Using a fork (or spatula, or back side of a spoon) “smash”, “push down” or “squish” each potato wedge until it “breaks” or “pops”. 
  4. Combine onion powder, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Sprinkle the “smashed” wedges with the seasoning. 
  5. Place frying pan on stovetop over medium-high heat. Add half of the oil and half of the potatoes. Cook for 3-4 minutes and then turn-over. Cook another 3-4 minutes or until desired crispness. 
  6. Repeat with second half of the potatoes. 
  7. Remove then plate and serve with dip.
