Mom's Delicious Roasted Potatoes

My mom's been making garlicky potato wedges lately, and whenever she does, all diners converge to gobble up every morsel. Simple to make, these roasted potatoes take:
1 lb. small red potatoes
1/4 c. olive oil
1 T. minced garlic

Wash potatoes and cut into quarters to make wedges. Put in large bowl. In measuring cup, mix olive oil and garlic; pour over potatoes and mix well. Sprinkle with salt to taste. Put into baking dish and bake at 450 degrees about 45 minutes, until potatoes are done and browned. If desired, stir once or twice during baking for more even browning.

Note: When I made these last, I baked them at 325 degrees since I was cooking a pork roast at the same time. They were done in an hour, but were not as brown and crispy as usual. The point being, if you're baking something else anyway, a lower temperature works fine.

Another note: I have no idea how many servings a pound of potatoes should make, but two of us ate this whole recipe, no problem. The point here being, if you like potatoes or are serving more than two, you might want to at least double the recipe.

Happy eating.

We're not big potato eaters--rice is fast, easy, delicious, goes with everything--but this sounds good. Thanks.

Do you ever make fried rice? I would love a good recipe for that.

Fried rice? My husband and nephew are the expert chefs when it comes to that. But I'll get their secrets and pass it on....
