Helpful Kitchen Tools:
How To Season Potato Wedges for Baked Potato Wedges?
Go with your favorite. Really! Only suggestion here would be do not over season or over power these beautiful and humble potatoes. We want to have the potato taste come through beautifully with a hint of all the seasoning and spices.
One basic but awesome seasoning for potato wedges is garlic. Love the garlic flavor that comes out when I bite into the wedges.
Paprika – for that slight kick. It truly enhances the taste.
Italian herbs – gives a beautiful aroma to the wedges.
Definitely Salt – no wedges is complete without salt.
Olive oil – to help it bake through and make it crunchy, plus make the seasoning stick to the wedges and not fall off on the baking tray.
Parmesan – I used Parmesan powder. Cheese makes everything taste great, so why not!
Tips To Make Baked Potato Wedges Crispy
The key to making oven roasted potato wedges turn crispy and crunchy is using the right amount of oil.
Flip the wedges half way through the cooking time and spray little oil and return to oven.
Leave oven door open tiny bit once baked potato wedges are done. This will help it crisp up.
Can You Freeze Baked Potato Wedges?
In my opinion they don’t hold up as leftovers even when you bake a LARGE batch of these wedges.
Still wondering if you can freeze? Yes you can. They freeze well. After baking, let them cool completely then transfer to zip lock bag and freeze. To serve frozen wedges, first defrost them, spray little oil and bake for 10 minutes.
How To Bake Potato Wedges
Prep potato wedges:
Scrub and rinse potatoes to get rid of any dirt. Pat dry the potatoes on kitchen towel.
Cut each potatoes in half length-wise, cut each half in half again length-wise and then cut the half in half. You get 8 wedges from each potato.
At this stage you can soak the potato wedges in ice cold water for 15-20 minutes and then start using them. I skipped the soaking step. Because I got beautifully crispy baked potatoes without soaking so why bother about extra step here :D.
Use a large mixing bowl and add the potato wedges and all the seasoning ingredients into the bowl and mix. Or if you are being lazy like me, then throw the wedges straight on to a baking tray, add oil and seasoning, and mix with your hands. Easy!
Bake your best potato wedges:
Arrange the wedges in a single layer on the baking tray. Pop the tray into a pre-heated oven. Bake for 35 minutes, turning wedges half way through baking time (spray oil after turning), until golden, crisp and cooked through when tested with a fork.
Sprinkle with fresh parsley and some more Parmesan. Serve immediately.

I’m so glad you loved the recipe Heidi! Thank you
Cindy Orley says
Great recipe overall, but everyone complained that it has too much salt. Maybe the combination of the salt + parmesan cheese was too much. I’ll make it again but with 1/2 the salt. Not complaining, just alerting anyone that doesn’t like too much salt. 🙂
