You know that heavenly feeling when you bite into a piping hot potato wedge that has just come out of the oven? They’re crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and one of my absolute faves! Hearty potato wedges, seasoned with love and farm-fresh spices, are the ideal side dish to everything from roast chicken to burgers to fried seafood.  If you love potatoes, you might also enjoy trying our Twice Baked Potato Casserole or perhaps a cozier Baked Sweet Potato dish.

So, I want to introduce you to this Delish Potato Wedges recipe, a dish that will bring a smile to your face one wedge at a time. This recipe’s got some family vibes, almost like our homemade fries or roast potatoes, with that sprinkle of magic. Think dusting of paprika, whispers of garlic, and a hint of dried thyme, these wedges are all about kicking back and savoring simple pleasures. For an alternative with a twist, consider our Horseradish and Chive Twice Baked Potatoes. Perfect for lazy Sunday lunches or weeknight dinner gossip sessions, these potato goodies make every shared meal a memorable one.

Why You Will Love This Recipe

  • Baked, not fried, these potato wedges are super healthy. I know those of you watching your calories will appreciate.
  • They’re not only healthy, they’re yummy, thanks to spices like paprika, garlic and onion powder. And if you’re a fan of garlic, you might love our oven-roasted garlic.
  • It’s super versatile, which means it will complement a juicy steak, a perfectly roasted chicken, a hearty veggie burger, or just a simple salad. You can find great main dishes to pair with these wedges, such as the best oven-baked lamb chops or roasted chicken and vegetables with maple mustard sauce.
  • Making these wedges is a no-brainer. It’s easy as pie (er, wedges) and only needs the most basic ingredients and simplest steps. For another simple recipe, our garlic rolls are a must-try.

Top Tips For Perfect Potato Wedges

  • Go with Russets or Yukon Golds. They hold their shape well and get nice and crispy on the outside while staying fluffy inside.
  • Soak your cut potatoes in cold water for 20 minutes to remove the starch and help the wedges crisp up in the oven.
  • Coat each potato wedge well with the spice-oil mix.
  • Avoid overcrowding the baking sheet so the heat can circulate. For more inspiration on potato dishes, you might want to try a twice-baked potato casserole.
  • Check your wedges at the 25-minute mark and allow more time if needed.

FAQs

Can I switch up the olive oil with something else?

Yep, olive oil brings a lovely flavor but other oils, such as Canola, sunflower, or even coconut can fill in just as well.

Which other spices do you recommend?

Feel free to jazz it up with your favorite herbs and spices. I regularly turn to rosemary, oregano, cayenne pepper, or even a bit of Parmesan can add an interesting spin to the flavor vortex.

What about sweet potatoes, can I use them?

Yes! Sweet potatoes are not only a unique twist on this recipe but also pack some extra health punches and a tad different zing. Keep in mind, though, they do cook a bit quicker.

Dry or fresh herbs – which is more suited for this recipe?

Though we did use dried thyme here, fresh herbs are always welcome. If you’re going with fresh, you might want to use a bit more than laid out in this recipe, as dried herbs pack a punchier taste.

How about some other remixes to this recipe?

Feelin Italian? Add parmesan and basil. Craving some Mexican heat? Bring on the chili powder and cumin. Or turn to turmeric and coriander for an Indian spice.

Serving Suggestions

Our Delicious Potato Wedges make for a versatile side dish that pairs well with a wide variety of mains. Serve them alongside a juicy steak, a crispy piece of fried chicken, or a hearty meatless burger. Don’t forget some tangy ketchup or a creamy aioli for dipping—it’s the perfect accompaniment to these perfectly crisped potato delights!

How to Prep and Store Your Potato Wedges

You can easily prep these Potato Wedges ahead of your party. Just get them all ready up to the point of baking, cover them up, then pop them in the fridge. They should be good for a day. Any leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge where they’ll stay delicious for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to dine once more, spread those wedges out on a baking sheet and heat them up in a 375°F oven for about 10–15 minutes, until they crisp up again.
