    I think everyone makes them differently...

    * Put potatoes in microwave, whole
    * Cook for about 10 mins
    * Preheat oven
    * Take pots out of microwave and slice into wedges
    * Tip onto baking try and spray with frylight
    * Cook until brown and crispy

    I prefer the microwave method as it's less fuss and washing up, also, the wedges are crunchier (in my opinion).

    Let us know how you get on x

    - put oven on HOT!
    - cut potatoes into wedges
    - put in plastic container and microwave for 3 mins
    - shake and microwave for a further 2 minutes
    - spray pizza tray with frylight
    - spray potatoes with frylight, add any herbs/spices (fajita spice is nice and tasty), mix around in bowl to coat wedges
    - tip onto pizza tray and bake in oven. usually take about 10 minutes as wedges are virtually done when you put them in, so just need browning on outside.

    I do mine a much simpler way. I tried microwaving them but found they didn't cook any quicker. I just cut them into wedges, spray a tray with frylight put the wedges in, season (I use garlic salt but you can use anything) then spray the top with frylight and wait til they're cooked
