Oven-Baked Potato Wedges

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 russet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into eighths
Feel free to adjust spices as needed. Sometimes instead of garlic powder and salt, I just use garlic salt (about 1 1/2 teaspoons). Or you can use seasoning salt and omit the salt and powders in the recipe.

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place, olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, salt, and potatoes into a resealable plastic bag. Seal the bag, then shake to coat the potatoes with the seasoning. Spread the potatoes over a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, take out, turn over potatoes (or just mix them around a bit), put back into oven until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, about 15 more minutes.

These are easy to make and a lot cheaper than the bagged french fries that you can buy at the store. We serve them with hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, pulled pork sandwiches, etc. They are really good. 

If you don't have a whole 30 minutes, you can boil the potato wedges for a little while (5 to 7 minutes), season them, then bake them in a preheated oven for 15 minutes.
