Baked Paprika Potato Wedges with a touch of garlic powder, the best side dish that goes wonderfully well with any roast, burgers, meat sandwiches or wraps, or just on their own. Serve them with your choice of sauce, and you are in for a treat. Great choice for Game Day, or just a nice meal.
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 any take-away wedges. And a lot healthier too.
Baked 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 garlic granules, a super winner!
I used regular paprika, but spicy paprika or smoked paprika would also be a great choice if you want to give them a spicy kick. Also, cayenne pepper or just some chilli pepers would work well here.
Any seasoning is great, and you can play with quite a few in order to achieve the level of spiciness you are after. Or just a nice flavour.
Step-by-step photos and instructions
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 crispy and they bake evenly.
- cut the potato into wedges, add them to a freezer baking together with the oil and seasoning, and give the bag a good shake to ensure an even coating
- don't overcrowd the baking tray, otherwise the wedges will be way too soft, and not crispy on the outside
- bake at 220 degrees Celsius, 430 Fahrenheit
- the wedges should be ready in about 35 minutes, but do keep an eye on them every so often, and give them a good shake
A side dish for everything
Baking is the way to go when it comes to potatoes, any way shapes or sizes. My Crispy Baked Fries are a regular side with us, my kids love them, and are so much healthier and tastier than some greasy take-away fries.
Both the wedges and fries are just perfect when it comes to a good side for any roast, burgers, scampi, and so on. With the Superbowl just around the corner, why not give them a try? I can guarantee a smashing success.

Paprika Potato Wedges

- 1 tablespoon olive oil (extra virgin)
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
- 1 teaspoon salt

- Wash the potatoes with cold water, pat them dry with kitchen towel, then cut them into wedges. You can peel the skin off, if you wish, but I prefer it on.
- Place the wedges in a re-sealable plastic bag together with all the other ingredients.
- Seal the bag and give it a good shake, so that they wedges get coated nicely.

- Serve with the sauce of your choice.
These potato wedges are making me hungry. One of my favorites and love that they're spicy. And of course you need some creamy dip to go with these 🙂

Potatoes are the BEST (especially with dip)! I love that you've made them spicy! I've got a bag of potatoes just waiting for this!

My mom made these when I was a kid. I have loved them ever since. Perfect as a side to so many things. Great for breakfast and brunch too. The perfect way to cook the humble potato.

It has been way too long since I've made these last! This is how I want to spend my weekend, with a plate of spicy potato wedges and chicken wings, yum!
These potato wedges sound great, I love a spicy touch to them! Looks like I need to make these soon!

Oh these are going to taste so good with chicken wings tonight! I love all the flavors and the spicy kick! My son loves spicy- daughters not so much so I'll make a double batch to make everyone happy!
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!

This looks so sooo good. Roasted potato wedges are my favorite winter dinner. The simplicity and variety of spice blend combos you can use for preparing wedges are just amazing, right?! Pinning!

You had me at spicy! Those little crispy bits along the edges look so good.
I got to tell you that this is my favorite way to eat the potatoes and just looking at that gorgeous roast you have on yours, I am tempted to make them right away and enjoy. Such a great recipe!
Oooohhhhh these look so good and I sooo wanna grab them right out of the screen. This is an easy recipe and will try soon.
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.
Thank you, Corina!
Thank you, Lisa! Glad you like the stew!
Yummmm great recipe !
Made these tonight. Loved them. As I have to be very careful about the carbohydrates because of prediabetes , I just wondered if I got it right, only 3 carbohydrates per portion. And only 43 calories.
