Bake for 22-28 minutes, flipping over halfway through the cooking time.

When you’re ready to eat, sprinkle the wedges with more Parmesan cheese while they’re still warm. I like this dish best when it’s served fresh from the oven and garnished with fresh parsley for that extra flavor!

How to Cut Potato Wedges


For the best way to cut potato wedges, you will need a sharp knife and a cutting board.


  1. First, cut the potato in half lengthwise.
  2. Then, cut each half into thirds, so that you have six long wedges.
  3. Finally, cut each of the wedges into thin slices by making evenly spaced cuts perpendicular to the previous cuts.


How to Reheat Potato Wedges


The best way to reheat potato wedges is to preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then place the potato wedges on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. You could also use a microwave, but I find that they don’t always come out as crispy that way.


What to Serve Potato Wedges With

    Every recipe I have ever read says to soak the potatoes in cold water to remove the starch. Hot water activates the starch. Why are you using hot water?

    In the recipe it says to bake wedges at 450. In the “tips” it says they are better baked at 350. Which is correct?
