Seasoned Baked Potato Wedges

Seasoned Baked Potato Wedges

Potato wedges tossed with seasonings and oil and baked

Yield: 

4-6 servings

Ingredients: 

6-8 medium potatoes
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons chili powder

Optional ingredients:

cayenne pepper
chives
dried parsley
grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions: 

1. Scrub potatoes and rinse under cold water. Pat dry.

2. Cut potatoes into wedges or thin steak fries (about 6-8 wedges per potato).

3. Using a large mixing bowl, toss potatoes in oil. Or, put oil and potato wedges in a gallon-sized ziplock bag, seal, and shake to coat. (Or, use a large bowl with a tight-fitting lid, and shake to coat.)

4. In a small bowl, mix dry ingredients thoroughly. Pour over potatoes and toss to coat. Or, add seasonings to bag, seal, and shake to coat.

5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread potatoes in a single layer on an ungreased non-stick* baking sheet.

6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until potatoes test done with a fork. Sprinkle with salt to taste.

Tammy's Review: 

These potato wedges are easy to make, and taste delicious!! Joshua and I were both surprised the first time we made them, at how quickly they were made and in the oven, and then at how deliciously crisp and flavorful they were after baking! :) We've made this recipe many times since. My rating: 10/10

Seasoned baked potato wedges with asparagus

I used this seasoned baked potato wedges recipe (baked with 2 baking sheets) and half-way through the baking time, I put some asparagus stalks on top of one sheet of potatoes, and then put the rest of the potatoes on top.

I put the heaping pan back in the oven to finish baking. Delicious! I served this with baked salmon fillets.

These are the best that I have tried yet of seasoned potatoe wedges! The seasonings are just perfect.

I used large baking potatoes, and so I did have to bake them longer than the given time. Maybe next time I'll try red potatoes. Is that what you used, Tammy?

Please see the recipe above for my full review! :)

And yes, we used red potatoes in the recipe photos -- though any kind works! :)

We love potato wedges but always made them with plain lawrey's seasoning.I doubled the seasoning since I used a few more potatoes and got them perfect for dh,oldest son & me but the youngest said they were to hot.I will use the amount it calls for next time even though I am using a few more potatoes.

My husband doesn't care for potato wedges, so I used my French fry tool to cut the potatoes into strips. They turned out so yummy! I had to skip the onion powder since I had none, but it was still delicious!

My whole family just loves these! My only complaint is that mine don't seem to get as crispy as yours appear...I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Regardless, they taste wonderful and we'll make them often.

We had these last night. Very good!!! I did twist the ingredients a little. After the potatoes tested done, I turned the oven up to 450 for a minute or two, that helped get them crispier.

I already made these many times, but had never put chili powder on them so tried it this time! Excellent! Even my three year old ate alot and asked for seconds! I bake mine at 400 though and stir then often. It helps them to get crispier.

These were great! But they smell pretty bad while baking!

I made them when my sister and brother-in-law were moving to have out for helpers to grab and eat. While they were cooking, one of them came over to me and asked if something was burning. I laughed and said, "No, it's just an experiment in the oven!" Later, after they had come out, he grabbed one to try it and, reaching for more, remarked on how good they were, asking what I did to make them.

I had small new red potatoes, I left them whole and used the ingredients and put them on the grill. I cooked them until they started to wrinkle and were soft when squeezed with the tongs (I did pierce a few to test also). They were GREAT! I would imagine that I could also make the wedges if I used my grill pan too, but leaving them whole was a lot easier.

I made this with burgers tonight. Husband commented that they were really good. He said next time he wants me to cut them smaller though and cook a little longer until crunchy. I was in a hurry to eat so I just cooked them until they were done...not till crunchy. ;o)

These were a great addition to the hamburgers i made tonight! they were really easy to put together and i kept them in the oven for 40 mins at 400 degrees. All thought i used 8 small red potatoes, it was barley enough for 5 people. Next time i ll double everything.

I made these for dinner last night and I liked the ziplock bag idea. I usually mix the seasoning on the cookie sheet, but it is not as even as mixing in the ziplock bag.

I made these last night, and knowing my children, I cut the chili powder in half, just 1 tsp, and threw in a tsp of dried chives. I used ordinary baking potatoes, as I did not have any red or russet potatoes in the house. I used garlic powder and onion granules, as I do not keep the salt versions on hand, and shook some coarse sea salt over them before putting them in the oven. I let them cook longer as the potatoes were quite large, and so the wedges were quite big. I liked them, and my husband loved them, although they did not go crispy, but my daughter thought they were too spicy, and my 2 year old son tried a bit, but I think he felt the same. It is not the fault of the recipe, just my children! I would cook them again, but I will probably cut out the chili powder altogether, and perhaps use a bit of paprika, or seasoning salt, and just use the chili powder if the children are over at their nanna's! I wonder what they would taste like with some mild curry powder? I like bombay potatoes - maybe I will try that next time.

I liked these very much! I started making them, and I thought to myself, "Tammy really isn't teaching me anything "new", I could just throw a bit of this a bit of that, I'm sure they'll be great" but then I paused, and thought that I should at very least give the seasoning selection a chance, so I did and I am amazed at the simplicity and the perfect combination of the seasoning! I served them to my husband, and much to my delight, he said, "make these again, please" and he went on to tell me that I wasn't very hopeful (because of past recipes!) huh! He never told me he didn't like previous attempts, though, he probably did tell me to keep looking in the past. But that is now in the past, this recipe is going into my repertoire, I a sure to be making it again this week I am sure!
thanks for the great recipe Tammy!

These were a hit for the whole family. I did use the ziplock bag idea. Easy clean up but I always feel guilty just using them once. I didn’t have garlic salt so I used season salt. Very tender on the inside and seasoned just right on the outside. Thanks Tammy!

Made these tonight with BLT's and harvest apples. Great meal. Used regular baking potatoes, just cut thinner, and bakes an extra 5 min. Also used the park cheese, great touch!
