1. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut each half in thirds lengthwise. You'll have 6 wedges from each potato.
2. Place the potatoes in a large bowl with cold water and soak for 20 min to remove some of starch that causes the potatoes to stick. Drain them with paper towels.

type of salt

I am going to make these tomorrow and want to know if I can use sea salt instead of table salt.

A definite winner

Yummmm So easy and fast too. The whole family loved it. I served it along with the Pork Chops with Red Wine Sauce from this site.

Best potato wedges recipe!

Unbelievably delicious!!! Best potato wedges recipe so far! I followed the recipe as is and it was perfect!

Very excellent recipe

I would give this recipe 10 stars!!! I followed the recipe exactly - we really loved it! The wedges came out very crispy outside and it tasted really good. Served along side our burgers.I will definitely make it again soon.

Thanks, anna, for your comment!

Sorry, missed olive oil from the ingredients list, just added it. I used about 1/4 cup for this recipe. Bet you'll like these potatoes!
