Impromptu Entertaining: Baked Potato Wedge Fries with Rosemary

Baked Potato Wedges

Wedge fries are always a favorite in our house.  They are simple to make and go well with most main courses, as well as an appetizer or snack.  You can use a variety of herbs and seasonings to make these fit your taste buds.  This example will be using rosemary since I feel that rosemary and potatoes go together so incredibly well!

Potato Wedge Fries with Rosemary

  • 2-4 baking russett potatoes (figure 1 potato per serving)
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • kosher salt (to taste)
  • freshly ground pepper (to taste)
  • 3-4 cloves of pressed garlic
  • 1-2 Tbs rosemary, finely chopped
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • Parmesan cheese, shredded (optional)

Preheat oven for 400 degrees.

Combine the cut potatoes, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl and toss until the potatoes are well coated.  Add garlic and rosemary.  Toss lightly.

Lay wedges on their sides onto a lightly sprayed stone or cookie sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes in middle of the oven.

Remove from oven and carefully flip the wedges with a small spatula so that they are facing the opposite direction.

Bake for another 10 minutes.

Remove and, if desired, sprinkle cheese onto wedges and bake for another 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Serve.

** I love rosemary and garlic with these.  You can also use other fresh herbs as well or try different combinations.  If you want to add a little zip to them, replace 1/2 tsp of the olive oil with chili oil when doing the initial toss! **

    These look delicious. I do potatoes like this often with a rub like the ones you use for steak or fish. When I was in New York (oh, how I love saying that! Must go back some time!) I bought a box of little tins of different rubs from Dean and Deluca and a teaspoon or two on potatoes done like this makes spicy wedges which are a great favourite at our house. Great with mild things like fish and salad. I love the look of your blog! Thanks for visiting mine!

  4. These look tasty! A good replacement for the french fry lovers in our lives!
