Potato wedges

Growing up, when someone asked me what my favorite food was…it was always potatoes! Now don’t get me wrong, they are still one of my favorite foods, but I don’t know that I would say that anymore. However, I love pretty much ANY kind of potato (besides potato salad), and could eat them every day and not get sick of them! One of my favorite ways to make them is to bake them in the oven! Baked potato wedges taste just as good as regular wedges, but you don’t have to fry them.

These potato wedges really are so easy to make and we love making them to go with just about anything we’re grilling. Recently, we’ve been making parmesan potato wedges and the added layer of cheese really takes them over the top! My family loves to eat the potato wedges plain, but they also taste amazing dipped in ranch. Definitely add these oven roasted potato wedges to your menu. You will thank me later!

How to make potato wedges

These baked potato wedges are quick, easy and taste absolutely delicious. Just follow these simple steps to get started. Scroll down for the printable potato wedges recipe.

  1. First you want to wash your potatoes and then let them dry. You’ll leave the skin on them, so no need to peel.
  2. Then you’ll cut your potato wedges. The best way to cut your potato is to cut it in half length wise. Place the flat side down and cut it in half again. Depending on how thick that piece is, you’ll cut it into 2-3 slices. Each potato should give you 8-10 potato wedges.
  3. Next you’ll mix up the seasonings and then toss them with the potato wedges and bake until perfection.

How long do I bake potato wedges?

I typically like to bake my parmesan potato wedges for about 25-35 minutes at 400°F. The baking time will vary depending on your oven and how crispy you like your potato wedges, so just be sure to keep an eye on them once they hit the 20 minute mark.

How do you make potato wedges crispy?

I find these homemade potato wedges perfectly crispy just by baking them in the oven. The parmesan coating adds an extra crunch and the potato wedges turn out crispy on the outside but tender on the inside. If you want EXTRA crispy potato wedges, the trick is to soak them in hot water before baking. Once the potato wedges are cut, place them in a bowl with warm water for about 10 minutes. This helps release some of the starch, making it easier for them to absorb moisture.
