When the potato wedges are done soaking for the recipe, toss them with some olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and grated parmesan cheese. Then season the potato wedges with some salt and pepper and bake until crispy. When the potato wedges come out of the oven, you can dress them up with a little bit of freshly chopped parsley. Serve the potato wedges warm and dip them in your favorite sauces. You can serve these baked potato wedges as an appetizer recipe or alongside any meal. These are sure to be your new favorite fries recipe. You'll want to take a look at the step by step video tutorial for this easy to make potatoes recipe on the Two Peas and Their Pod site.

These easy baked potato wedges are so crispy and delicious. You'll need about 30 minutes to prepare the potatoes and another 35 minutes to bake. For this side dish food idea, you'll need russet potatoes, olive oil, garlic, dried rosemary, parmesan cheese, salt and black pepper.

The parsely is an optional ingredient for this potatoes recipe, but it does add a nice bit of color to this easy to make food idea.

Russets are the potato variety that is long and large with a thick, rough, outer skin. Russet potatoes are a high-starch potato, with a flesh that is snowy white and very dry, these potatoes are the quintessential baking potato. Russet potatoes also make first-rate mashed potatoes recipes that are soft and light and able to absorb a good amount of liquid or other enrichments. Russets are also delicious baked in a creamy gratin, and these potatoes make the best french fries. Where russet potatoes don’t shine is in preparations that call for boiling, as in most potato salad recipes. And though russet potatoes make delicious pureed soup recipes, it’s not a good idea to use russets in any soup where you want the potatoes to stay in small, intact potato chunks. Russet potatoes are often called Idaho potatoes after the state that leads to the production of these potatoes. Starchy potatoes to include russets and many sweet potato varieties are great for baking and frying food ideas as they are absorbant. Other potatoes are waxy potatoes to include red skinned and fingerling potatoes. These potatoes are great for soup recipes and salad food ideas because they hold their shape so well during cooking. Then there are all-purpose potatoes to include Yukon Gold, purple and blue potatoes. These potatoes are good for roasting, baking or mashing potatoes recipes.
