This easy recipe for Baked Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges will blow you away with its simplicity and fantastic flavor! These make a great side dish or appetizer for parties!
Fries are my weakness. Many a time my sky-high metabolism younger self and brother made midnight french fry runs to the local Wendy’s/Carls Junior/Mickey-Ds/whoever is open at that unsightly hour. I’ve tried to get a handle on my addiction in my adult years by ordering fries on the side only here and there when eating out, instead of going with the fries-with-everything motto I endorsed for 20 years.
When my siblings and I went to iHop for breakfast, I ordered chicken strips and fries. Pancakes are great but they just can’t win out over deep fried potatoes and ketchup.
These days, like I said, I try to order fries less frequently – for obvious health reasons. Often times I’ll just share with the husband, he doesn’t mind giving up a few. Or 60%. He’s awesome like that.
And when I’m craving some variety of fry while at home in my sweats, I usually make my own instead of heading out for a to-go order.
“A medium fry, please”.
“Yes, that will be all”.
This latest semi french fry is sort of blowing my mind. So crispy and loaded with yummy garlic and Italian flavors. I could never turn down garlic and cheese. On french fries nonetheless!
I dipped these beauties in blue cheese dressing with freshly chopped parsley. Oh my heaven. Wendy’s natural cut fries have nothing on these baked garlic parmesan potato wedges. And like I said, I’m a sucker for those. So when I say these are worth making, I really mean – GO MAKE THESE!
What people are saying about these Baked Garlic Parmesan Wedges
“Wow! These were amazing! I actually really don’t like oven fries ever. But I still try and make them b/c they are healthier and cheaper than store bought frozen. These were SO good! I could totally see wanting to eat these, and only these, for a dinner or a snack! YUM!” – April
“These are awesome!!! I made these the other night and they came out amazing! I love french fries and these tasted like they were from a restaurant. They took a little longer to cook to get them crispy and I put them under the broiler for 1.5 minutes, otherwise I followed the recipe. My boyfriend loved them and said they were perfectly seasoned and salty and didn’t sprinkle more salt on them (and he puts extra salt on everything)! Great recipe! Thank you!” – Tara
“Thank you so much for the potato and parmesan recipe! It was easy and my husband and two year old loved them and they are very picky! This will be a weekly staple!” – Sarah
“Made these for the first time last night for the family. My kids can be picky eaters, especially my 10 year old son. Not last night. Both kids wanted seconds and then argued about who would get the 6 left over fries for breakfast. These were fantastic and I can see them becoming a regular part of the rotation. Paired with some T-Bone steaks that were on sale. A little blue cheese for the fries, a little for the steak…” – Matt
