  • When the potato wedges are well covered with oil and spice, add them to the bowl and toss again.
  • 4. Add Parmesan: Toss the potatoes one more after adding the grated Parmesan, making sure the cheese sticks to them.
  • 5. Arrange on Baking Sheet: Evenly space out the wedges, skin side down, on the baking sheet that has been prepared.
  • To guarantee that every wedge gets crispy, make sure they aren’t crowded.
  • 6. Bake the potato wedges for 25 to 35 minutes, or until the edges are crisp and golden brown, in a preheated oven.
  • To guarantee even browning, turn each wedge over halfway through the baking process.
  • Step 7: Garnish and Serve: Take the baked potato wedges out of the oven.
  • For a pop of color and freshness, sprinkle with finely chopped parsley.
  • Serve hot, and feel free to serve with creamy garlic dip, ranch, or ketchup as dipping sauces.
