Roasted Potato Wedges

We have this form of potato almost weekly.  It's very simple and super tasty.  They're really good as an accompaniment to burgers.  

2 medium/large potatoes, washed and cut into wedges. (First cut the potato in half lengthwise.  Turn potatoes cut sides down, and cut each half lengthwise into 4 wedges.)

Place wedges into a bowl.
Drizzle approx. 1-2 Tbsp. of olive oil.
Toss with desired spices.  
Salt and pepper for basic flavoring.
Paprika, garlic power, and Italian seasoning for a mild Italian flair.
Grill seasoning and paprika for a good "bite." (at least if your grill mix is spicy)
Chili powder, garlic, and cumin makes for a good spicy combo.  
I try something different every time, and haven't been disappointed yet.  

The "real" recipe calls for:
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. paprkia
1/4 tsp. ground mustard
1/4 tsp. garlic powder 

Bake at 400-425 for 20-25 minutes, turning once.  (bake more or less depending on your desire for "crispiness")
