Parmesan Potato Wedges

This recipe was inspired by another one of my favorite food blogs, The Comfort of Cooking. Head over there and check out some of Georgia's incredibly yummy looking recipes. I guarantee your mouth will be watering! 

Being a Midwestern girl, I love me some potatoes! Simply put, these parmesan potato wedges make me happy. They are so easy, so flavorful, so crispy and tender. The perfect side dish. I served them with BBQ chicken sandwiches. It was a pretty tasty little meal!

4 to 5 potatoes, washed (Georgia used red, I used golden)
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl combine oil, garlic and spices, including salt and pepper. Whisk together. 
Cut potatoes into wedges and place potatoes into bowl. Using your hands, make sure the potatoes are covered in the oil and spice mixture. Place on baking sheet and bake 25 minutes. 
Check on potatoes after about ten minutes and rotate them with a spatula. After removing from the oven, sprinkle the fresh Parmesan over the potatoes. Georgia recommends laying the potatoes on a paper towel to soak up the excess oil, but mine weren't that oily. Add additional salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!


  1. And me with a basket of new potatoes on the counter... These look great!
    When I was in high school, I used to toss potatoes with shake-n-bake chicken seasoning. I usually try not to cook with packaged seasoning anymore, but I might have to make those again soon for the sake of nostalgia.
