Baked Potato Wedges

Total Time:
1 hr 5 min
Prep:
10 min
Cook:
55 min

Yield:
6 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 4 large baking potatoes, unpeeled
  • 4 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Scrub the potatoes, cut them in half lengthwise, then cut each half in thirds lengthwise. You'll have 6 long wedges from each potato. Place the potatoes on a sheet pan with the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, and rosemary. With clean hands, toss all the ingredients together, making sure the potatoes are covered with oil. Spread the potatoes in a single layer with 1 cut-side down.

Bake the potatoes for 30 to 35 minutes, turning to the other cut side after 20 minutes. Bake until they are lightly browned, crisp outside, and tender inside. Sprinkle with salt and serve.

These have become a family favorite. I cut into fourths instead of thirds, reduce the amount of salt and add more garlic. Absolutely delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published

One word, YUMMY!!! I like them better than MacDonald's fries and I really like their fries. Easy to make and so tasty. My wife loves them too. It's definitely a keeper!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
What a pleasant surprise! Mine always came out limp but these were crisp and delicious right out of the oven with ketchup. I used two large russet potatoes cut into hearty wedges. I mixed them in a bowl with good quality olive oil and a teaspoon of Kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, and garlic powder mixed together. No rosemary. Spread on a single layer on aluminum foil on baking sheet and baked at 425 for 55 minutes, turning after 30 minutes. TIPS: the thinner slices and tips brown easily so I will trim off the tips and toss the irregulars pieces or remove them early. When serving, I sprinkled lightly with Fleur de Sel finishing salt. You''ll want to dig in immediately but to keep warm, turn oven off and place tray back in oven. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have been trying different potato wedge recipes but nothing came out that well. This recipe changed everything. It's now my go to recipe for potato baked fries. The only change I made was to add chives instead of rosemary and baked at 425 for 17 minutes. Fantastic! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Simple and tasty! I cut each potato into 8 pieces because i like them a little more crispy. You can really get creative and add a few more spices! i have made these 3 times for my fiance already and he gobbles them up! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is very easy and delicious! I used a bit of cilantro in addition to the other ingredients...just perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ina's recipes never fail to please!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really really really good. Everyone - ages 1 to 42 enjoyed this dish. Ina has done it once again. I had to do these quickly, so I increased the heat to 450, and made the wedges even smaller - I think I 1/2'd the 1/2's. Will definitely make these again and again and again for my finicky crew! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I make these every week. Now I cut the potatoes into smaller wedges to shorten the cooking time. This is a great canvas to play around with different herbs/ spices too. Tonight I tried a little cumin and cayenne instead of fresh rosemary (I always keep the garlic though!) and it was yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These potatoes are amazing! They're even better the next day! Adults raved, and kids begged for more. This will be our go-to recipe for family gatherings, parties, any old time when we need mouth watering potatoes. Using the Ziploc bag is a great way to coat the spuds. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very fast to put together. I used the gallon zip lock to coat the potatoes and it worked like a charm. My family loved the fries. As a reviewer suggested, I too used Italian seasoning which had rosemary in it, but I'm looking forward to trying it with fresh when I have it. The 50-55 minutes was perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super easy and always a hit! My husband loves these! I never have any leftovers! Thank you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic meal, made spinach salad with red onion and crumbled bacon instead of the roasted tomatoes, Bleu cheese instead of gorgonzola, it's what I had on hand item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making these for years and they are always wonderful--whether with a nice steak or hamburgers, the flavor is amazing. And very simple to prepare! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These have become our new "french fry" recipe. They are great with burgers and easy to throw together quickly. We typically use Montreal Grill Seasoning in place of the salt and pepper, still adding rosemary and olive oil. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it! Easy to prepare, lots of flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I absolutely loved it. I didn't have any garlic at home to mix in, however, they still came out nice and crispy, and of course flavorful for such an easy, minimum use of seasoning. =] I can't wait to make them over again another day, and hopefully this time with garlic. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and a nice change from fries or baked potatoes item not reviewed by moderator and published
These seemed too simple to taste very special, but I was proved wrong! For whatever reason these are just amazing! Crispy outside, fluffy inside and packed with flavor. Perfect tailgate food! My husband LOVED these. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish is a nice side dish or snack. I just made it as a 3pm snack. I love trying new things and this was really filling and nice. I would like to see if i can find a cheese sauce to put over it as a side dish to dinner. Thanks for the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were so yummy! I couldn't find any rosemary in my house so I just used Italian Spice mix which has rosemary in it. Substituted seasoning salt for the regular salt. I also threw everything into a ziploc bag and shook it up - worked like a charm :) My boyfriend loved them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
super easy, fast and yummy item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVE this recipe! It is one of my "go to" recipes for entertaining or just everyday dining. I do change up the preparation process a bit, though. I like to infuse the olive oil with the chopped garlic (and I use lots of it!) and rosemary for at least an hour or two prior to pouring it over the potatoes. I also like to cut the potatoes WAY thinner than Ina says to. That's just my preference, though, as I like every piece to be just a little bit crunchy. Once they're done baking, I turn on the broiler to give them a little bit of added crisp. It's so yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have tried a few time to make baked fries. These were different but very good. I didn't have any minced garlic so I used garlic salt along with all the other ingrediants and they came out great! My boyfriend is not a fan of rosemary and he even loved them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cut the potatoes into 12 wedges because I prefer them a little thinner. The flavor was fantastic. This recipe was so simple and straightforward and the flavors were spot-on. I will be making these again for sure! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was making Ina's fantastic parmesan chicken again and thought I would do a potato recipe with it. I am so glad I did. Perfect again Ina. I even like the way they look. I took peels off though. Didn't use garlic. Really tasty. Good with ketchup. Linda item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's such a simple recipe, but these potato wedges are perfect the way they are--no need to make things more complicated! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So amazing! Easy, perfect amounts of everything, and perfect cooking time and heat. Other recipes seem to dry them out or not cook them enough. I did not use the rosemary though. They were even better as leftovers because the flavor of the oil and garlic was stronger. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm pretty much a novice at cooking and these were easy and turned out so yummy. Will definitely make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Friends and family said best potato wedges they ever had. I agree!!! (And I used dry spices) item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were the best! Nice and crunchy on the outside and perfect on the inside. I didn't have any rosemary but they were tasty w/out it. Great recipe to play with spices. I served them with oven chicken fingers and ranch & spicy bbq for dipping. I will definitely be making these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are also great with a little dry ranch dressing mix. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are an easy way to make a healthy version of french fries. The wedges are big and flavorful, crunchy outside, moist inside. I think it would be helpful to change the wording on the baking time. (I thought it was for a total of 30-35 minutes because it says to bake it for that long then "turning to the other cut side AFTER 20 minutes". What it means is bake for the 30 to 35 minutes then turn to the other cut side for ANOTHER 20 minutes. When I noticed in the recipe summary the cooking time is 55 minutes, it made sense.) Other wording being a little confusing, it's an easy recipe and a great accompaniment to steak. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These came out perfect and are fun for kids and adults alike. Fresh rosemary gave the potatoes just what they needed. The outsides were crisp and the insides, tender and moist. I make them all the time and for parties or a special dinner with family and/or friends, I serve them in big plastic, decorated cups. item not reviewed by moderator and published
