Think great crispy baked wedge fries have to be deep fried? Not on your life; at our house we never do. Instead, we use the simple method we also use for making outstanding English Style Roast Potatoes.

We par-boil the potato wedges for only three minutes to break up the starches on the surface. This greatly aids in getting them fantastically crispy without a lot of oil.

Yukon gold potatoes

Yellow potatoes are good for this recipe but any kind will work.

We usually allow only one tablespoon of oil per person but I’m pretty sure that you could even cut that back a bit. As long as the wedges are all thinly coated with oil, they will be fine.

You can peel the potatoes if you prefer, but we like to keep them on for extra flavour and nutrition. These are the perfect accompaniment to our juicy, tender, crunchy, Best Oven Fried Chicken recipe.

As the recipe notes, you can add herbs or chili flakes to the potatoes before baking but you can also add flavour when they come out of the oven. Toss them in Cajun spice mix for a wonderful spicy version.

As with roasting potatoes we often break up a head of garlic and simply throw the unpeeled cloves randomly among the wedges to infuse garlic flavour into the oil and potatoes.

Oh and one last thing, any leftover wedges can be quickly heated and re-crisped in a hot oven and even re-purposed  for brunch like in this photo of the reheated wedges in a potato bacon and cheddar omelet.

Ingredients

  • 6 large potatoes, (about 1½ to 2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or canola oil
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 small head of garlic, (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Preheat the cookie sheet in the oven as well. It is important that the fries hit a hot pan because this will help ensure that they do not stick to the pan. If the potato wedges sizzle when they hit the hot pan, that’s perfect. You’ll want to get the pan back into the oven as quickly as possible too.
  2. Bring 2-3 liters of salted water to a boil. Begin by washing the potatoes and cutting them in thick wedges. Drop the potato wedges in the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes exactly. Immediately drain the water off the potatoes and toss in the olive oil, salt and pepper. You can add additional seasoning at this point like herbs or chili flakes but they are great simply seasoned with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread the potato wedges in a single layer on a large preheated cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees F for about 30 minutes. Turn the wedges over once, half way through the baking time. Remove from oven, sprinkle with kosher salt and serve.

These were wonderful. I tried them with different seasoning, Italian, Creole and dill, depending on the main. All went well.

What happens if someone was to use peeled garlic cloves?

I have looked everywhere for your crispy cod recipe! There are pictures and a bit of advice regarding crispiness, but no actual recipe. Am I blind? Probably. Well, maybe I will cook your chips without the fish...oh, wait! It doesn't specify what kind of potatoes to buy. Guess I will see if I can find something else to try...thanks.
