Easy spicy garlic baked potato wedges

I’m going to let you in on a little secret of mine. I am completely addicted to potato wedges. Have been for years. And this recipe for easy baked potato wedges is my fail-safe side dish option when I have nothing else in the house but need to feed my family. It’s featured on the side of burgers, next to juicy grilled steaks, with roast chicken and as is served with ketchup for lunch.

Easy spicy garlic baked potato wedges

What I love so much about roasted potato wedges is that I kind of get the satisfaction of eating fries with none of the guilt. Ok, who am I kidding, I feel no guilt when eating fries BUT potato wedges are definitely a little healthier for you. I also always leave the skins on because I seriously love their flavour (and of course, all those nutrients) but if you prefer, feel free to peel the potatoes first.

How to cut potato wedges

Place the potato on a cutting board in front of you and with a sharp knife, slice down onto the potato cutting it in half. Take each half and slice into 4 wedges from the center point. So easy!

Potato wedges seasoning

This seasoning for potato wedges is one I’ve loved for quite a while now and goes so well with the neutral flavour of the potatoes. Of course, feel free to add or leave out what you feel would suit your tastes best. But as you’ll know if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, I love anything spicy. Garlic powder, red pepper flakes, smoked paprika and Italian herbs will make these potato wedges a hit with whoever you share them with. Guaranteed.

    In the ingredient list it says chilli flakes…are you referring to chilli powder or crushed red pepper flakes?

    • Alida Ryder

      I used red pepper flakes but chilli powder could also work.
