Although this may take a little time to assemble it is definitely well worth the effort. I love to serve this (all on one large plate) as a ‘help yourself’ main course.

Crispy Chilli Potato wedges

  1. Pre-heat oven to 190°C/375°F/ Gas Mark 5.
  2. Place the potato wedges in a large bowl, drizzle with the oil, add the chilli powder and season with a little salt and pepper.
  3. Mix together ensuring the potatoes are well coated and place on a baking tray lined with parchment. Bake for 35-40 minutes until crispy and well cooked through to the centre.
Top Tip Leftover meat mix can be mixed into some hot pasta the next day to make a tasty pasta meal or alternatively can be piled high onto a baked potato with some yoghurt or crème fraiche for a healthy lunch.
