What You Need To Make This Baked Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges Recipe?
Russet Potatoes: These russet potatoes are specifically picked for their quality and robust texture. When baked they turn out beautifully with a crispy layer and a fluffy interior making them the ideal choice for these potato wedges.
Olive Oil: Olive oil serves two purposes in this recipe. Firstly it prevents the potato wedges from sticking to the baking sheet. Secondly, it adds a color and a satisfying crispness to the wedges.
Salt: Salt is an essential ingredient as it helps bring out the flavors of the potatoes and enhances the taste of other seasonings we’re using.
Garlic Powder: The addition of garlic powder provides an aromatic flavor that pairs perfectly with the potatoes and cheese.
Italian Seasoning: Our special Italian seasoning blend infuses our wedges with hints of herbs giving them a Mediterranean touch that’s hard to resist.
Parmesan Cheese: We choose parmesan cheese because it’s a dry cheese that grates well. It adds a slightly salty flavor that complements both garlic and potatoes splendidly.
Optional Ingredients: For those looking for some freshness and color in their dish fresh parsley or cilantro can be added. As for dressing choices ranch or blue cheese dressing can be used based on your preference. Both options provide a creamy contrast to these potato wedges.
Steps To Make Baked Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges:
Step 1: Fire up your oven to a cozy 375°F (190°C) and lightly butter up a large baking sheet.
Step 2: Slice your russets into thick wedges and let them plunge into a large bowl. Coat them well in olive oil so they’re ready for the next step.
Step 3: In a separate bowl, mix your salt, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning into a flavor explosion. This stuff is like fairy dust for potatoes!
Step 4: It’s raining cheese! Sprinkle your glistening potato wedges with shredded parmesan, then with the flavor-packed seasoning blend.
Step 5: Send your potatoes onto the greased baking sheet, skin-side-down. Let them bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes, baking to a golden, fork-tender perfection.
Step 6: Once they’ve tanned nicely, sprinkle them with freshly chopped parsley and serve them with your favorite dipping sauce. It’s like a final touch of magic!
For an extra touch of indulgence and crispiness, try this: after the wedges are baked and while they’re still hot, give them an additional sprinkle of parmesan cheese. The heat from the potatoes will slightly melt the cheese, providing an extra layer of flavor and a bit of a crispy ‘crust’. This trick amplifies the savory, cheesy goodness of your Baked Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges. Remember, the secret to amazing food often lies in these small details. Enjoy!

- Prep Time: 15 MINUTES
- Cook Time: 30 MINUTES
- Total Time: 45 MINUTES
- Yield: 4 1x
3 to 4 large russet potatoes, cut into wedges
4 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp of sea salt
2 tsp of garlic granules
2 tsp of mixed Italian herbs
Half a cup of parmesan, shredded
Optional: Freshly chopped parsley or cilantro, and either ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping
First preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a baking sheet. This step ensures that the potato wedges won’t stick and allows them to develop a crust.
Next take the potato wedges. Place them in a bowl. Drizzle them with some olive oil. Give them a toss ensuring that each wedge is lightly coated. In a bowl combine salt, garlic powder and Italian seasoning to create an irresistible flavor blend.
Now comes the cheese! Sprinkle shredded parmesan over the potato wedges while tossing them gently to ensure an even coating. Then generously shower them with the seasoning mixture.
Arrange the potato wedges on the baking sheet with their skin sides facing down. It’s important to have them in a layer as this allows for even baking and achieves that delightful golden color we love. Bake in the oven for 25 to 35 minutes until they are tender when pierced with a fork and have attained a golden brown hue.
Once they’re done sprinkle chopped parsley over the top for added freshness. Serve alongside your preferred choice of dipping dressing. Indulge, in these cheesy treats!
