Crispy Baked Potato Wedges
These crispy baked potato wedges are super crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. These are a perfect side dish for dinner or just enjoy them by themselves!
I feel like I start every single post with I really like “insert food here”. I can’t help it, I just really like food. But, I have to say it again. I reallllyyyyy like fries or as my niece calls them “fry fries”.
Speaking of my niece, we’re having a sleepover this weekend. She’s been begging to come to stay the night at my house and play with Buffy, who’s really Benji (she never remembers which dog is which). For the record, Benji only likes her because she gives him food and he can steal gummy bears from her when she’s not looking. So I’m spending my Saturday night camping in the living room, roasting marshmallows, and watching Frozen. #bestauntever
So, while I’m on the subject of being the best aunt ever I may have to make her some baked fry fries. There’s something about those crispy potatoes that just screams comfort food. Anyone else agree? For me, fries are almost like tortilla chips, it’s really hard to just stop at one because you just want to keep going back for more!
I love baking potato wedges and serving them as a side for dinner. These potato wedges are made crispier by tossing them with a little cornstarch before baking them. These only take about 10-15 minutes to prepare, then the oven does the rest of the work. For this recipe, I put what spices I use but if you have a favorite spice then feel free to use it as well! Another great thing about this recipe is that it only requires 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil! So you can feel better about eating them and serving them to your family. Enjoy!
Crispy Baked Potato Wedges
- 2 russet baking potatoes
- 1 tbsp. cornstarch
- 1 1/2 tbsp. oil
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. paprika
- 1/8 tsp. pepper
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray and set aside.
- Scrub the potatoes, cut in half lengthwise, then cut into wedges. Be sure to cut the wedges the same size so they cook evenly.
- In a large bowl, toss the potato wedges with the cornstarch.
- Add in the olive oil and spices, making sure to coat the potatoes evenly.
- Line the potato wedges on the prepared baking sheet, making sure not to overcrowd them.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes, flipping about halfway through.
- Remove from oven. Sprinkle with additional salt, if desired, and serve.
These look amazing!
I LOVE oven-baked potato fries! Paired with any kind of dipping sauce and I’m all set! These look amazing, Danielle and so perfectly easy with these crazy-busy summer days we all have this time of year! Enjoy your weekend with your niece too!
Sounds like you and your niece will have a great time this weekend, especially by camping out in the living room. How fun! 🙂 I love these fries, Danielle! I wish I could eat a handful of them right now, and it’s only 7am! I love how easy these are to make, too. Definitely trying this one out soon. Pinned!
Hope you enjoy them! Thanks for the pin Gayle 🙂
You’re neice sounds so cute! “Fry fries”, I just love that! Sounds like you’re in for a super fun night on Saturday.
Is there anything better than crispy potato wedges? So much better than frozen store bought fries. These look perfect!
I know haha she’s adorable. They really are better than store bought!
Have fun with her this weekend! Potatoes are a big hit in our house, so potato wedges fit right in! Can’t wait to try them for myself!
Thanks Cindy! Hope you enjoy them if you try them.
I love these! I make baked fries at least twice a week and they are my absolute favorites! I love the thick wedges that you cut! I’ve never tried tossing them with corn starch before, I’ll have to try that next time because I love crispy fries!
I love using the cornstarch it helps get them a little crispier!
I love that these are baked! So much healthier and easier than fried 🙂
These look extra crispy but still tender on the inside -just how I like my wedges! What a great side dish for BBQ season. Must try the coating trick -so neat! And I love the photo with the ketchup. Ketchup and fries is the only way!
These look so crispy and I just can’t believe that they are oven baked!! I want some now!
Yum, now I’m craving oven roasted potatoes! These look so amazing a crispy, I love the corn starch trick, I’m going to have to try that next time!
Thanks Louisa! The cornstarch helps get them even crispier!
I can’t lie Frozen was a good movie, she loved it too. I’m glad I’m not the only one who starts every post that way, but it’s so hard because it’s true!
You just made my day! I am enjoying these right now. Super easy, super crispy, super healthy, and super yummy! Thank you for sharing!!!
Your comment made my day, Katie! I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed the recipe! I love making these potato wedges for dinner or lunch 🙂
