Potato Wedges are a classic side dish that resembles steak fries! They are hearty slices of potato baked or fried to perfection for an excellent side dish.
Restaurants have been serving these for years as an alternate to regular French Fries, and we have been loving it!

How to make Crispy Potato Wedges:
One thing about potato wedges or "steak fries" is that they sometimes do not get crispy.
I do not like a soft potato wedge so I make sure to cook these on a wire rack so the heat in the oven can fully cook all sides of the wedge, and there is not one full side on the baking sheet.
When baked they will become crispy and perfect as a side dish for any meal!
- Russet Potatoes
- Olive Oil
- Garlic Powder
- Seasoning Salt
Step One: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and prepare your baking sheet with foil and a wire rack then set aside.
Step Two: Cut potatoes into wedges by cutting in half and then half again until you get the perfect wedge size. Place your potatoes in a bowl of water and allow to soak for 10 minutes then pat dry.
Step Three: Place your potatoes in a bowl of water and allow to soak for 60 minutes then pat dry.
- Tip: These wedges can be soaked longer if you would like, up to 2 or 3 hours. Soaking potatoes before baking or frying will draw out the starch and prevent them from sticking together.
Step Four: Place your potatoes into a large mixing bowl. Add olive oil, garlic powder, seasoning salt, and pepper to potatoes and mix until evenly coated.
Step Five: Place wedges on the wire rack and bake for 45-50 minutes turning every 20-30 minutes until fully cooked.
How to serve the wedges:
One thing when making fries or potato wedges are you have to serve them right away. Potatoes cool down rather quickly, so serving them hot as soon as they are done is the best way to enjoy these. Serve with ketchup or ranch dressing.
