Country Potatoes – and why cook a rocket science

Did you know that cooking and baking are very complicated and of course super time consuming? And who has time these days have left? But luckily there are plenty of choices on the shelves and freezers of supermarkets. Packet up and down in the furnace or in the microwave. Although from time to time must also add one or other fresh ingredient and then the whole is heated in a pot. Then's almost boiling or not? Oh, the taste is very delicious – how would you get it just without the help of the food industry alone? We have made it happen today, really good…

But enough of this irony, for cooking / baking is not rocket science – at least when it comes to simple dishes 😉 And as I often can find alarmingly, the simplest things are bought ready themselves. What all is in it, and under what conditions is one or the other is made consumers often do not care. The main thing it goes fast and “tastes”.

Today I have therefore a recipe for you that can prepare any amateur: Country potatoes. Ok, I admit it's a little more time must be spent when cut open the bag and just push the potato wedges in the oven. But for these wedges are better tasting, you know exactly what is in it and you can also customize them according to your taste. Does not that sound good? Then ran to the tubers:
