Slice the potatoes as uniformly as possible. This will ensure that they all bake evenly.
When picking your potatoes, try to choose taters that are the same size. This will make it easier to cut the same size wedges.
Don’t skip the fresh dill and lemon zest at the end. The flavors of the fresh herbs and citrus are what make the dish taste so amazing!
