How to Make Potato Wedges?
Make the best potato wedges with three simple steps:
- First, cut potatoes into similar-sized wedges.
- Secondly, toss and coat potatoes wedges evenly with all seasoning ingredients in a bowl.
- Finally, bake them until crispy and fork-tender on the inside. Serve immediately.
For the best result, please follow my tips below.
- Pat dry each potato wedge with paper towels completely before tossing in the oil and seasonings to avoid them from being soggy after baking.
- To make potato wedges extra crispy, soak the raw potatoes in hot water for 10 minutes before baking. It helps to get rid of more starch from potatoes, which creates a crispier skin than usual.

WOW, we love oven fries but these go way beyond flavor of just a baked fry. We added a side bowl of Kewpie Mayo for dipping. THANK YOU!
Glad you love it.
Hello Bee, Thanks for all your recipes; I appreciate your including Celsius oven temp. I’ll make these with sweet potato for a change and probably lower the oven temp.
Hi Bee – thank you for publishing another extraordinary, 5* recipe! The chatty detail is very helpful, plus easy to find ingredients (especially the spices). I had Redskin potatoes, so I made the recipe for a small neighborhood gathering today – 8 servings worth were gobbled up by four people! Thanks again and best wishes!
Most recipes for baked/air fried potato wedges call for soaking in cold water for 30 minutes. You call for soaking them in hot water for 10 minutes. (But not in the actual directions…) Not one recipe I can find calls for hot water soaking for potato wedges.
It is my understanding that the ice water soak removes starch from the cut edges, which makes them crispier, while the starch inside the potato leads to the tenderness of the insides. Can you clarify, please?
Hi John, soaking raw potato wedges in hot water actually helps to remove more starch. I didn’t include this in the actual directions because it is a bonus for the extra crispy skin. And, if you don’t have time for this additional process, you should still get the golden crispy potato wedges baked followed by this easy step-by-step recipe.
