potato_wedges_feta

I don’t fry potato wedges or chips. I always bake them in the oven but you need oil for the crunchy texture. This ‘Feta Topping’ is a delicious addition to them because the sourness of the feta cuts through the oiliness of the wedges balances the flavour quite well. Adding spices to the potato and herbs to the feta, you can create Italian, Greek or other different flavours.
