How to Make Easy Potato Wedges



These potato wedges are perfect…

  • for a dinner side
  • for a lunch side
  • with burritos or wraps
  • all by themselves
  • for when you are craving something starchy or salty
  • in place of chips
  • to make instead of headed for the drive through
  • for using up the potatoes you have and aren’t sure what to do with because you bought the ‘big’ bag because it was a better deal!

But, you don’t really need a reason to eat them or make them to simply enjoy them.

However, this wedge recipe was used at least once a week during my last pregnancy, such as when I had a hard time figuring out what to eat with morning sickness! Along with the veggie sandwiches I had craved and ate almost everyday in my third trimester.

And, my girls and husband love it when I make these; I’m lucky there’s ever any left for me!


Let’s Make These Easy Potato Wedges!

First, preheat your oven to 450°F.

While the oven preheats, peel and cut the potatoes.

To cut potatoes, start by cutting them right in half, so you have two shorter pieces. Then lay it flat side down and start cutting in half about 4 more times, like in the picture below. This is what gives them their shape.

Then add the potatoes, oil, and spices to larger container with a top.

Secure the top and shake.

Shake again, and keep shaking until all the pieces of potatoes are coated as evenly as possible.

Place the seasoned potatoes onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.

Make sure they aren’t touching each other or on top of each other, this is to ensure they cook as even as possible.

Bake for about 20 minutes, remove from the oven and flip each wedge over to bake on the other side.

Bake the other side for about 20 minutes, or until all sides of the wedges are golden.

Let cool and enjoy plain or with any dip you desire!
