The earthy flavor of potatoes, the rich taste of parmesan, and the pungent perfume of garlic come together in baked garlic parmesan potato wedges, making it a delicious side dish. Here’s how to create these flavorful wedges in your oven, step-by-step.

  1. Four big russet potatoes, washed and dried
  2. one-fourth cup olive oil
  3. four minced garlic cloves
  4. Grated Parmesan cheese, half a cup
  5. One teaspoon of dried oregano
  6. One teaspoon of dried basil
  7. Half a teaspoon of paprika, optional for a smokey taste
  8. To taste, add salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  9. Finely chopped fresh parsley (for garnish)


1. Prepare the baking sheet and preheat the oven:

  • Set oven temperature to 400°F, or 205°C.
    To prevent sticking, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
    Second, chop the potatoes:
  • Cut each potato lengthwise in half. Then, depending on the size of the potato, cut each half into three to four long wedges.
  • For consistent cooking, try to maintain an approximately uniform size for the wedges.
  • 3. Season the Potatoes: Combine the olive oil, salt, black pepper, paprika, oregano, basil, and minced garlic in a big bowl.
  • 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.

  • Cheese Notes: Since pre-grated cheeses frequently contain anti-caking chemicals, freshly grated Parmesan melts and sticks better.

  • These potato wedges with garlic and Parmesan cheese are quite adaptable; you can change the herbs and spices to suit your taste. They provide a cozy and upscale element to any meal and are the ideal side dish for a variety of main courses.
