Dipped in a generous helping of sour cream and sweet chilli sauce, we can’t help but love delicious potato wedges. While we often enjoy this glorious treat out and about – you can certainly create this idea at home by making oven-baked potato wedges.
Oven-baked potato wedges are a little lighter than the fried version, which means that they don’t just have to be a treat – they can be served as a side dish during the week or as a snack when you entertain.
We’ve created an easy version of wedges in our Cooking School video which demonstrates just how fuss-free wedges really are! Take a look:
How do I make potato wedges in the oven?
You may be used to enjoying fried wedges, but they are still seriously yum, when baked in the oven.
Simply add to a baking tray in a single layer and transfer to a 200°C (180°C fan forced) instead of adding to a deep fryer.
How long does it take to cook potato wedges?
The recipe is quick to prep, as you don’t need to peel the spuds before cutting them into wedges. Once you pop the potatoes in the oven, they will take anywhere between 30-40 minutes to become golden and cooked through!
To test your spuds, simple prick with a knife to check if soft.
