OVEN BAKED Crispy Potato Wedges

oven baked wedges
Truly crispy, crunchy, OVEN BAKED wedges. No deep frying required, no specialty potatoes, no unrecognisable ingredients and no fuss! These are simple and delicious. I love popping a batch of these in the oven when we are having a barbecue, they go so well with a big juicy homemade burger or steak... Or anything really! It's the addition of the sour cream and sweet chilli sauce that make them extra good.
  • 1kg unpeeled potatoes, cut into wedges (see note 1)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Sweet chilli and sour cream to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced.
  2. Arrange the cut potatoes in a large baking dish (so that the wedges are not overlapping).
  3. Sprinkle with paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chicken/vegetable stock powder and pepper. Use your hands to coat the spice mix evenly (this is the key to the spices not clumping together!)
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and then use your hands to further coat. Arrange the potatoes so that the cut side is flat on the baking tray.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until the wedges are golden, turning once half way.
  6. Serve with sweet chilli and sour cream.

Note 1 – I know many recipes call for specific potatoes when it comes to chips or wedges, but I use any variety (whatever is on special at the supermarket). This recipe works even with the most waxy potatoes. The results are always crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. I choose not to peel my potatoes (it’s one less step and the skin is packed with nutrients), but you can peel them if you wish. Cut your potatoes into wedges by halving lengthways, cutting each half in half again and then for large potatoes, cutting each wedge in half again to give you a total of 8 pieces.
