Potatoes are a staple in our kitchens, but they can be a bit dull. We’ll try to oomph them up with a few basic flavors and make some amazing wedges.
To make our potato wedges, we’re going to need some potatoes, so we’re going to cut them in half lengthways and make diagonal cuts. We’re going to set our potato wedges aside while we work on our flavors.
We’re going to use half a cup of olive oil, a tablespoon of dried garlic powder, a tablespoon of mixed dried Italian herbs, a tablespoon of smoked paprika, a teaspoon of salt, and some freshly grated black pepper.
The last step is entirely optional, but I like to add a little bit of cheesiness so I’m putting in some Parmesan cheese. Then we’re going to drizzle our herb and spice olive oil mixture over the top of our potatoes and toss them around.
The potatoes are coated in cheese and herbs and spices, and are starting to turn a lovely smoky red color. They are ready to be popped onto a tray, and the aroma is incredible.
To make the cooking more even and the cut sides to get a chance to dry up and go crisp and golden, place the potato wedges skin side down on a baking tray. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden and crisp.

These potato skins are absolutely sensational. They are soft like mashed potatoes on the inside, but have this wonderful crispy skin on all sides.
Potato wedges are a great snack for movie night or a get-together with friends. They’re easy to make and everyone will think you’re a genius.
