Oven Roasted Potato Wedges

Crispy and flavorful on the outside, tender and delicate on the inside–these oven roasted potato wedges are cooked to perfection to make a delicious and simple dish.

I have yet to meet someone that doesn’t like a good potato wedge. As a kid, wedges were my favorite way to eat potatoes. I loved the fact that you really get to taste more of the potato flavor in a wedge than your average french fry.

Although there are a plethora of frozen or fast food options to pick up potato wedges, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover just how simple they are to make at home.

Here’s the recipe:

Oven Roasted Potato Wedges

  • 3 large potatoes
  • 2 T olive oil
  • salt & pepper (to taste)
  • parsley (optional garnish)

Preparation:

Pre-heat the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Thoroughly wash the potatoes and then pat them dry.
