Baked Potato Wedges

posted in: Side Dish        date:

We made these baked potato wedges to serve alongside turkey burgers. They were a great accompaniment! I love potato wedges, and these were no different. I was a little worried that they wouldn’t be as crispy as I wanted, as that often happens when I bake things that are normally fried. However, these potato wedges were wonderfully crispy. I thought these were great with just the rosemary, but I think I’ll try adding some different herbs/spices next time.

Baked Potato Wedges
Ingredients:
4 large baking potatoes, unpeeled
4 tablespoons good olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves

Directions:
-Preheat the oven to 400°.

-Scrub the potatoes, cut them in half lengthwise, then cut each half in thirds lengthwise.
-You’ll have 6 long wedges from each potato.
-Place the potatoes on a sheet pan with the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, and rosemary.
-With clean hands, toss all the ingredients together, making sure the potatoes are covered with oil.
-Spread the potatoes in a single layer with 1 cut-side down.

-Bake the potatoes for 30 to 35 minutes, turning to the other cut side after 20 minutes.
-Bake until they are lightly browned, crisp outside, and tender inside.
-Sprinkle with salt and serve.
