INGREDIENTS
Servings: 8
Large potatoes,
6, scrubbed, peeled, wedged lengthwise
Butter
1 cup, divided (more may be needed)
All-purpose flour
2 cups
Salt
2 tsp.
Freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp.
DIRECTIONS
  1. Fill a large bowl with water. Place wedged potatoes into the bowl and refrigerate for an hour or longer.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450°F/230°C/Gas Mark 8. Grease a baking sheet.
  3. Melt ½ cup butter in a microwave-safe bowl or in a saucepan on the stovetop; pour into a shallow dish.
  4. In another shallow dish, mix flour with salt and pepper.
  5. Coat potato wedges in the flour mixture and then coat in butter. Arrange coated potato wedges on the baking sheet. If the butter becomes too thick in the process because of the flour, melt some more butter.
  6. Bake for about 35 minutes or until golden brown and tender. Serve hot.
