About the recipe for Baked Potato Wedges

To choose wisely, the most suitable potatoes for our recipe are russet or Idaho potatoes (there is a difference between the Idaho and Russet potatoes). The size of the potatoes is also important, our recommendation is to use potatoes between 8 and 10 ounces each. Also important is the oven baking temperature, which is 425 gr. F, and the ingredients that makes this wedges recipe one of the best choices. It is very important to use the ingredients as shown in this recipe for a balanced taste. Before writing down this recipe, I tried to bake the wedges potatoes in different ways, with different ingredients and oven temperatures. Trust me, this is the most balanced way. I added 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, don’t be scared to use it.




Notes and Tips

  • Essential Equipment: rectangular pan (about 13 × 9 inches).
  • To have success with this Baked Potato Wedges recipe, cut up potatoes just before baking. Use Russet or Idaho potatoes because they are the best for baking.
  • Before you roast, parboil the potatoes in salty, acidic water. The acid will help the potatoes keep their shape while getting tender, the salt will season them, and the boiling will gel the outer layer of starch.
  • Place your baking sheet into the oven as it heats. Potatoes will be less likely to stick to a hot, hot pan, and the browning process will begin more quickly too.
  • Don’t shake and flip your potatoes too often, as that will interrupt the browning process.




Potato wedges are the best choice for a classic and tasty side dish

When I want a classic side dish, the potato wedges recipe is what first pops up in my mind. These delicious oven-baked potatoes with paprika are the best choice for a BBQ steak or can be a great accompaniment for any pork meat. Because the purpose of a side dish is to balance out or complement the main dishes of a meal, a classic side dish will never let you down.




How do you cut potato wedges?

Place the potato on its side and, using a large chef’s knife, slice it in half lengthwise. Place the cut side of the potato down onto the cutting board, and cut it in half again to create quarters. Place each potato quarter cut side up, then slice down the center of the quarter to create a wedge.




Can you freeze or refrigerate potato wedges?

If you want to refrigerate them, keep in mind that will have a slightly different taste after you’ll take them out from the refrigerator and reheated… it is potato after all… You can keep them in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. In order to freeze them, it is best to wrap them up individually and then place the wedges in the freezer. The potatoes can be kept in the freezer for up to 1-1 1/2 months if frozen solid. Before you reheat them, let the wedges for 5 minutes at room temp.




Can you cut potato wedges ahead of time?

Cut the potatoes a maximum of 8 hours ahead and then store them submerged in water, covered, in the refrigerator. This will keep them from turning brown.
