  • 4 Baking potatoes large 
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper

Optional Variations

  • 1 tsp Dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp Lemon
  • Garlic powder 
  • 1 tbsp Paprika


Prepare Potatoes

  • Preheat Oven at 200 C / 400 F.
  • Peel and wash potatoes. 
  • Cut each potato cut in half. Then each half into three vertically.
  • Keep in a bowl of water if not using them immediately to prevent oxidation.

Parboil Potatoes

  • In the Microwave -
  • Place potato wedges in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave on high for 2 minutes, toss them to cook evenly and
  • Cook for another one minutes on high. OR
  • On the Stove-top -
  • Place potatoes in a pot of boiling water and boil for approximately three minutes. They should be firm, not soft. 
  • Drain the potatoes well. 

Bake the Potato Wedges

  • Place potatoes in a bowl.
  • Add the oil, salt, pepper and any seasoning you want (such as paprika, garlic, rosemary, lemon).
  • Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  • Lightly spray the baking parchment with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  • Place potatoes on a baking tray.
  • Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes turning them around once or twice as needed, until golden brown and crisp.
  • I usually turn them over around 20 mins and keep a close watch over them towards the end because different ovens cook at different timings.
  • Mine took about 35 minutes.
