These Baked Potato Wedges are crispy, cheesy, and perfectly soft in the center — exactly what you want from a potato wedge, but without frying! Served hot with ketchup or your preferred dipping sauce, this side is perfect for cookouts or any time you want a simple potato side.


  • 4 medium Russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/ 4 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated (optional, for serving)
  • fresh parsleyfinely chopped (optional, for serving)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Wash the potatoes thoroughly under running water and use paper towels to pat them completely dry. Cut each potato into 8 even wedges. 
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add potato wedges, oil, salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Stir well and coat evenly. 
  4. Place potato wedges in a single layer on a large half sheet baking pan.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown and fork tender.
  6. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley (if using) and serve warm. 

To cook in the air fryer:

  1. Place seasoned potato wedges in the air fryer basket.
  2. Air fry at 375F for 20-22 minutes, until golden brown and tender. Shake the basket halfway through for even cooking.
  3. Serve warm with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and parsley on top, if desired.


How to store: Transfer the cooled potato wedges to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4 days. 

How to reheat: Reheat in the oven at 375℉ for 10-15 minutes or in a 375F air fryer for 5-10 minutes until heated through and crisped up.

How to freeze: Place the potato wedges in a freezer bag or freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat them in the oven or air fryer straight from frozen to maintain the texture — adding a few extra minutes to the reheating time.
