Baked Potato Wedges

You know the best part of enjoying homemade baked potato wedges? Their delicious taste -- crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and perfectly seasoned to perfection. Yumm-eee! These create the best side dish for so many meals!

It's worth noting these baked potato wedges are perfect to serve company too. They are a naturally gluten and dairy free side dish everyone can enjoy. Speaking of which, awhile back I made a whopping batch of these wedges for a large dinner celebration with over a dozen people. This allergen friendly recipe was the perfect solution to safely feed a large crowd.

Another key point to baking these wedges is they're not fried. When trying to make healthier meals for my family, it's always a win-win to find healthier versions of delicious foods that are still yummy. It's worth noting my family and I think these taste just as good if not better than fried french fries. That's a huge win in my book!

  • 4-6 large Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 2 tablespoon oil I use grape seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • dash of ground black pepper
  • optional: dill, paprika, or Cayenne pepper
  • garnish: fresh chopped parsley


  • Fill a large bowl with cold water and ice cubes, set aside.
  • Clean and cut potatoes into wedges by slicing the potato in half, then cut in half again (long wise). If your potatoes are really large, slice them a 3rd time. Over all you will have 4-8 wedges per potato.
  • After potatoes are cut, place them in the ice cold bowl for 20-60 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F and prepare a baking sheet. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet or use aluminium foil, set aside.
  • Prepare a gallon size Ziploc bag with oil, garlic powder, salt, onion powder, black pepper, or your favorite potato seasonings.
  • Remove potato wedges from cold bath and place on a towel. Dry wedges well then transfer to Ziploc bag.
  • Gently shake potatoes in Ziploc bag to coat potatoes well with oil and spices.
  • Remove wedges from the bag and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Arrange wedges in a single layer.
  • Place in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and gently flip wedges, return to the oven for another 20 minutes.
  • The last 5-8 minutes watch potatoes carefully so they don't burn. It seems some ovens tend to bake hotter than others.
  • Remove wedges and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley. Serve with ketchup or another favorite dipping sauce.

Why do you put them in cold water, what does that do?


Thursday 24th of June 2021

I'm so glad you reached out to ask. The cold water bath helps them to rinse off the excess starch so the wedges don't stick together on the baking shee. And they are also crispier after baking. Hope this helps, Jill
