Baked potato wedges are so much better than fried. They are just as crispy and take almost no time to make.

Simply toss the potatoes with some olive oil and seasoning and bake for 25-30 minutes. They make an awesome side dish or appetizer.

The potatoes are tossed with some seasonings before they go in the oven. I sprinkle them with salt, pepper, oregano, and cayenne pepper for a kick.

To make the potato wedges cut the potato in half, cut in half again and then cut into wedges.

The potatoes bake in a 400 degree oven to ensure they get nice and crispy. It’s important you turn them once while they are cooking to ensure both sides gets golden brown.

After they come out of the oven they are tossed with Parmesan cheese and fresh chopped parsley.

Serve with a side of your favorite dipping sauce. I love to dunk these in my Bourbon Barbecue Sauce or Spicy Ketchup.

Make sure to place the potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet. If you don’t have enough room you can always divide them between two sheet trays. Overcrowding the pan will prevent the wedges from getting crispy.

I leave the skin on the potato and give it a quick wash and thorough dry. You want to make sure the potatoes are completely dry before baking. This helps them get crispy as well.

Serve these potato wedges as a side dish to my Slow Roasted Beef Brisket or my Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches.
