How Do You Make Baked Parmesan Garlic Potato Wedges?

  • In a large bowl add the potato wedges, olive oil, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  • Arrange potatoes skin side down in a single layer on a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with any remaining coating. Bake for 25-30 minutes until they are golden brown and crispy.

Do You Peel the Potatoes?

In this recipe I recommend not peeling the potatoes. The best part is that thick, crispy crust to enjoy after baking.

How Do You Cut The Potato Wedges?

Place flat sides down on your cutting board. Cut again in half, length ways. This would be for very large wedges. For slightly smaller, cut in thirds, lengthways, on a 60 degree angle, from the outside of the potato to the centre line where it hits the cutting board. When slicing the wedges try to make them all the same thickness so they can bake equally.

What is a Russet Potato?

A russet potato is a type of potato that is large, with dark brown skin and few eyes. The flesh is white, dry, and mealy, and it is suitable for baking, mashing, and french fries. Russet potatoes are also known as Idaho potatoes in the United States.

Can You Substitute the Russet Potato for another type of Potato?

Yes! Any other potato would be great with this recipe. I would recommend a white potato, red potato or a Yukon potato to substitute for this recipe.

 

Can You Make Potato Wedges Ahead of Time?

You will want to keep cut potatoes in water. Cover cut raw potatoes with water to stop them from turning brown. You can prepare them the night before and still have creamy white potatoes the next day.

How Do You Make Your Wedges Extra Crispy?

Soaking your raw potato wedges in hot water for 10 minutes before baking helps give the wedges more of a crispy outside.
