I’m always looking for a quick and easy way to prepare sides. We had some little yukon golds that needed to be eaten before they went bad. I thought about all the things I could make with them but I didn’t want to do anything fancy with it because.. I’m super lazy… especially in the kitchen. I know, it sounds a bit ironic since I own a food blog. I can’t be THAT lazy if I take pictures of the food I make in the kitchen, but trust me. Sometimes I read through recipes and if they look a bit complicated, I just say “forget it” and look for quick recipes.
Then I thought of baking some potato wedges. Just cut some potatoes up and season and bake with some Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. How easier can it get, really? And the result was… quite good. I love the combo of garlic and Parmesan cheese. I love making pasta with just these two flavors, too. So simple but so good!
I used little yukon golds but you can use russet potatoes if you want. Yukons are usually smaller so your wedges are going to be a lot smaller than the russet wedges. It might take a little less time to bake them, too.
Cu the potatoes in wedges. Drizzle olive oil over the wedges. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, and dried grated Parmesan cheese. Rub them all together by hand until the wedges are coated evenly with all seasonings and oil.
Bake at 425 degrees F for about 20-25 minutes or until the wedges are cooked and slightly crispy.
Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and smoked paprika if desired.
- 6-8 yukon golds, cut into wedges
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- ½ tablespoon oregano
- 2 tablespoons dried grated Parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- Freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
- smoked paprika seasoning (optional)
- Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
- On a baking pan, place the potato wedges. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder, oregano, dried grated Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Stir them together by hand to make sure the potatoes are coated evenly with the oil and the seasonings.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes (it might take a little longer depending on what size potatoes you use) or until the wedges are cooked and slightly crispy.
- Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and smoked paprika seasoning if desired.
