Baked potato wedges

Who doesn’t like some potato wedges? Golden-brown, hot, delicious, oh heavens above!

The are the perfect side for any roast, burger, and anything meat, and are way more delicious than anty take-away wedges.

And a lot healthier too.

Roasted in the oven with just a little bit of oil makes them nice and crispy on the outside, but fantastically tender on the inside.

And that lovely spicy coating with paprika and a bit of chilli kick, a super winner!

Together with my Crispy Roasted Garlic Parmesan Potatoes and the famous Garlic Smashed Potatoes,  these wedges are my favourite side every single time.

How do you make healthy potato wedges in the oven?

A few tricks, and you get to enjoy some seriously yummy potato wedges every single time. I don’t bother peeling the potatoes, but I do give them a good rinse before cutting them.

  • make sure to pat dry the potatoes after rinsing them

We want them completely dry before coating them with oil and spices. This will ensure they stay cripsy and they bake evenly.

  • don’t overcrowd the baking tray, otherwise the wedges will be way too soft, and not crispy on the outside
  • the wedges should be ready in about 50 minutes, but do keep an eye on them every so often, and give them a good shake

Shaking the wedges around will ensure they bake evenly on all sides.

You can go for as much spiciness as you can handle, apart from the cayenne pepper, you can add any chilli powder you have, or crushed chillis.

How do you season the spicy potato wedges?

The best way to season the wedges is adding them to a re-sealable bag together with the oil and spices, and giving the bag a good shake.

In this way, all the wedges are evenly coated, and not a single one had more seasoning than others.

I use this techique with pretty much anything that needs seasoning, chicken pieces, potatoes, etc and it works really well.

    Is there anything as good and homey as a potato? So versatile, yet best left simple. I love roasted root vegetables and potatoes are no exception. Love the spiciness you’ve added to this dish. Looks like a winner!

    My children love homemade spicy potato wedges and would love the flavours you’ve got on these. Smoked paprika is just gorgeous on wedges I think and I find these days if I make plain wedges or unflavoured chips my children complain so I’m always looking for different ideas for flavourings.
