How to Season Potato Wedges

Potato wedges, a hearty cousin to the French fry, are typically baked instead of fried. A properly cooked potato wedge has a crisp exterior and a creamy interior similar to a baked potato -- and seasoning brings out their flavour. But since the wedges aren't fried, they require a minimal amount of oil so the seasoning sticks.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Vegetable brush
  • Knife
  • Bowl
  • Spoon
  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive or canola
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary, oregano, thyme or sage

  1. 1

    Wash the potatoes under running water. Scrub the skins lightly with a vegetable brush.

  2. 2

    Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half into four lengthwise wedges.

  3. 3

    Place the wedges in a mixing bowl. Drizzle oil over the potatoes and stir until evenly coated.

  4. 4

    Sprinkle salt and pepper on the potatoes. Add rosemary and garlic. Combine any combination of oregano, thyme and sage instead of or in addition to the rosemary.

  5. 5

    Stir the wedges until they are thoroughly coated.

Tips and warnings

  • Bake seasoned potato wedges at 218 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes on each side. Otherwise, you can cook them on a foil-lined grill for 10 minutes on each side.
