Potato Wedges are the best side dish to hit the dinner table! They are tossed in the perfect blend of seasonings, parmesan, and olive oil before being oven-roasted.
These wedges are a great side dish but they’re also perfect to put out as a snack on game day!
The Best Potatoes to Use
Just like when making french fries, my potato of choice is russet potatoes. Look for quality russet potatoes that are fairly small and uniform in size for uniform cooking.
These wedges also work with red or yellow skinned potatoes, the texture will be a bit creamier and more similar to a roasted potato.
How to Make Potato Wedges
Homemade roasted potatoes get that crunchy dark coating on the edges that makes them super crunchy and perfect for dipping!
- Prep potatoes and cut into wedges (per recipe below).
- Toss with seasoning and parmesan and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Bake until tender and serve hot!
Try making them with your own rubs or seasoning blends for a custom side perfect for any meal!
How to Make Them Crispy
- Soak: Soak the potatoes in cold water for at least 30 minutes (or up to a few hours). This removes a lot of starch from the outside (you’ll see it in the bottom of the bowl as you remove them).
- Dry: Once soaked, dry the potatoes well. Any water left will steam them instead of crisp them.
- Oil: Be generous with the oil, it helps them crisp.
- Heat: A high heat helps crisp the outside just like when making roasted vegetables. You can also broil for a few minutes (without parchment paper) if desired.
