Baked Potato Wedges Recipe

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 35 mins
  • Total Time: 45 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x



  • Large Baking Tray
  • Sharp Knife & Chopping Board
  • Small Pot/Ramekin (for seasoning mix)
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Pot & Colander (for par-boiling wedges)
  • Fine Cheese Grater

Ingredients (check list):

  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper, or more for spicier wedges!
  • 4 medium sized White Potatoes (Russets or Maris Pipers work great)
  • 1 heaped tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 heaped tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 cup / 40g freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Thyme (can sub Oregano)
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Salt, plus extra to serve & par-boil (to taste)


  1. Slice your potatoes into 8 equal wedge shapes. I find this easiest by slicing in half, place flat side down and slice those in half, then flip again and slice in half again.
  2. Pop in a pot of cold water with a good pinch of salt and bring to boil for 3-4 minutes. You should only just be able to slice with a knife.
  3. Drain and give them a shake in the colander to rough the edges (optional). Sit and rest to steam for at least 5 minutes. The longer the better (the more steam that escapes the fluffier the inside and crispier the outside).
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl/ramekin combine 2 tbsp Olive Oil, 1 heaped tsp Paprika & Garlic
  5. Powder, 1/2 tsp Thyme & Salt, 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper (or to taste) and 1/8th tsp Black Pepper and preheat the oven to 200C/390F.
  6. Combine your wedges with the oil seasoning, mix to fully coat, then pour in 1/2cup/40g freshly grated Parmesan and mix again.
  7. Spray or lightly oil an oven tray and evenly space out your wedges. Use 2 trays if you have to.
  8. Spacing out is important so they don’t steam on each other and room room to crisp up!
  9. Bake for 25-30mins or until golden brown on the outside. Flip once after 15 mins. Timings will vary depending on your oven/size of wedges so just be vigilant after flipping.
  10. Enjoy hot with an extra pinch of salt and your favourite dip!
