Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges with Caramelized onion dip

Making Potato Wedges in Oven is much healthier than deep frying so I always prefer to bake them. They are perfect for those evenings with carb cravings. garlic, herbs, parmesan and chill flakes add layers of flavour that is unmatched and teamed with the Caramelized onion dip (Recipe here) they are just perfect – yummy to the core. Try it and you will find them irresistible too.

What’s in a name?

In some regions of the United States, potato wedges are known as jojos. This term originated in Elyria, Ohio[citation needed] and is also used in the Pacific Northwest (except for Seattle), Idaho, Ohio, Minnesota, Texas, and other areas. Jojos are potato wedges fried in the same vat as chicken and usually eaten plain alongside fried chicken, coleslaw, and baked beans. A variation in spelling and pronunciation is mojos, particularly in Western Canada, the Western United States and Canada’s Yukon.
In Germany, they are known as Kartoffelspalten or Wilde Kartoffeln (wild potatoes).
In France, they are called “Potatoes” (pronounced as it is in English)
In Sweden, they are called klyftpotatis (wedge-potatoes).
In Russia, they are known as картофель по-деревенски (potatoes “village style”).
In Turkey, they are known as “Elma Dilim Patates” (apple slice potatoes).
In Australia, potato wedges are a common bar food, that are almost always served with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce. They are usually seasoned with a variety of spices, commonly paprika, salt and pepper.
In Maryland, they are known as “Western fries”.
