Try these Easy 3-Ingredient Baked Potato Wedges any day of the week.  Toss all ingredients together and “throw” in the oven.

No need to peel the potatoes.  Potato skins are a great source of potassium!  Save time on peeling!

Which Potatoes to Use:

Choose starchy potatoes rather than waxy.  Starchy potatoes are best for baking because they are lower in moisture and are great for making crispy wedges!

Some of the most used starchy potatoes include Russet, Yukon Gold, and Idaho potatoes. 

How to Cut Potato Wedges:

First things first: 

Rinse potatoes well before cutting: Rinse potatoes in cool water and wash off any dirt.  You may brush them with a vegetable brush for a more thorough clean.  

Throw away potatoes with a green tinge: A green tinge in a potato may indicate toxicity, so check before cooking.

To cut the potatoes into wedges:

  1.  Cut the potato in half lengthwise:

  2.  Slice each half of the potato into another half, lengthwise, to create quarters:

  3.  Slice each quarter directly through the center (lengthwise) to create a wedge:

Each potato will give you 8 wedges.  If the potatoes are large enough, you may need to cut the wedges one more time, to make them a bit thinner.

Onion Soup Mix:

I use the Knorr onion soup Mix.  It’s available at any local grocery store.  Two tablespoons for four large potatoes is all you need.
