Easy Baked Potato Wedges #13

I love french fries.  I made some delicious fried french fries right after Michael and I got married.  They had a batter and everything.  Not only did they take forever, but I had the biggest mess ever!  And I haven't made them or another fry recipe since.  I came across these on  They look easy and have to be healthier than the fried version.

The case:

4 large potatoes
1/4 cup cooking oil
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Wash potatoes, cut into wedges.
Place potatoes skin down in a baking dish.
Mix the next 6 ingredients together and brush onto potatoes.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

The ruling:
I love, love, love these.  I don't even really know why, but I couldn't stop eating them, especially have I started dipping them in ranch.  I cut these in more fry sized portions instead of into wedges.  I only cooked them about 50 minutes, broiling, watching carefully, for the last 5 minutes.  I will make these again and again and again! 


  1. yummy! May try these with the russets I have in the pantry. Is that what you use?

  2. Yes! They are the perfect size for fries!
