Crispy Oved Baked Potato Wedges

Oven Fresh Seasoned Baked Potato Wedges

Seasoned Baked Potato Wedges are one of my family’s favorite side dish and they’re simple to make.  They can be customized to each family member’s favorite flavors.   

We make the basic recipe and then add in any additional ingredients depending on the mood we are in. They can be spicy, hot, cheesy, mild, or onion or garlic flavor.

To make them hot we add Crushed Red Peppers or to spice them up we add Cayenne Pepper.  Add more Garlic or more Cheese to enhance that flavor.

Potatoes are comfort foods for many families I know they are for mine. We make mashed potatoes or baked potatoes a couple of times a week and can get a little tired of that.  So, I started making Seasoned Baked Potato Wedges at least once a week. 


Which Potatoes are the Best?

What is a mealtime without a vegetable and a potato of some sort? Right 🙂 Potato Wedges can be made with Yukon Gold Potatoes, Russet Burbank Potatoes, or Red Potatoes depending on what you have on hand.  I like using Red Potatoes because the skin is thin. 

What Goes with Baked Potato Wedges?

Seasoned Baked Potato Wedges are a complement to many delicious meals.  We enjoy them with Hamburgers, Crab Cakes, and even Baked Salmon. What are some of your favorite meals that include Potato Wedges?

Potato Wedges are a great Finger Food for tailgating, potluck parties, or any kind of gathering.  So, forget about the French Fries and start making Crispy Oven Baked Potato Wedges for dinner.   

How to Cut Potato Wedges?

There are two ways you can cut potato wedges. The first way is to keep cutting the potato in half pieces until you have wedges.  The second way is to use a Wedge Cutter which is what I used.  It makes for easy cutting, but the potatoes can’t be too big or there won’t fit in the cutter. 

Potatoes are a healthy side dish to add to any meal because they are high in potassium and vitamin C. In this recipe the potatoes are baked instead of frying, it’s a healthier side dish.  

Tasty Dipping Sauce Ideas:

  • Sour Cream & Dill

  • Ranch Dressing
  • Honey Mustard
