battered and baked parmesan wedges

This is kind of a cop-out post because technically I made these wedges to go with our Superbowl grilled wings. But these are worthy of their own post! For those of you who like battered fries as much as I do, here is a baked approach that is just as satisfying. Cheesy and crunchy, these will taste like you're eating junk food.

Here's how you do it:
Start with four (~8 oz.) cleaned, white potatoes. Slice in half and then into wedges (I can usually get about 8-10 wedges per potato, but eyeball it).
Spray a baking sheet and set up your dredging station with the following shallow dishes:
  • 1/3 c flour and 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 large egg whites and 1 tbsp. water
  • 3/4 c Parmesan cheese with 1/2 c panko breadcrumbs
Preheat the oven to 425. Dip the pieces individually in the flour, then the egg and then into the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to help them stick. Place each wedge on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden, rotating pan after 20 minutes.
