Today, I’m showing you how to make the perfect crispy oven potato wedges.

Crispy potato wedges are something I could actually eat every day. You can make a thousand different recipes with them and still not have enough. My kids love them too, and I’m happy as I´m serving them something healthy, and they are enjoying it.
As already said, the fantastic thing about this recipe is it is also healthy.

ingredients for the perfect crispy oven potato wedges

  • Potatoes.

    I recommend using Russet potatoes. But any other potato works well too. The mashed potatoes turn out perfect with Russet potatoes. Leave the skin on as most vitamins sit right under the skin, and the skin adds so much texture.
  • Olive oil.

    A healthy fat source! It will also contribute to making the potatoes crispy. Please use high-quality extra virgin olive oil.
  • Smoked Paprika.

    This spice will add a sweet, smoky taste to the potato wedges.
  • Italian Oregano.

  • Thyme.

  • Garlic powder.

  • Sea salt.

how to store the perfect crispy oven potato

The potato wedges can be stored in a container in the fridge for about three days. Before serving, put them for 10 minutes in the oven.

any tips?

  • If you want to have some wedges always accessible, cut and season them and put them in portions in the fridge. When you want to eat them, preheat the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
  • If you don’t have much time or are not patient enough, cut the wedges into small cubes. Therefore, the potatoes are crispy even faster.

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Wash the potatoes.
  3. Cut the potatoes into wedges by cutting them potatoes in half. Then cut the halves in half. And again.
  4. Add all the potato wedges to a bowl and fill it with cold water. Let them sit in the water for about 5 minutes.
  5. Remove them from the water and dry them with a kitchen towel or paper towel.
  6. Add the dried potato wedges back to the bowl.
  7. Add all the spices, salt, and olive oil to the bowl and stir until the potatoes are covered in olive oil and spices: a beautiful red, orange color.
  8. Put the wedges on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.
  9. In between, like every 15 minutes, toss the wedges upside down so they don’t stick to the baking sheet and get crispy on all sides.
  10. Take the baking sheet out of the oven when crispy.
  11. ENJOY!
