  • 4 large potatoes
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons Smitties seasoning salt (adjust to taste)
  • Optional: Fresh herbs (like parsley or rosemary), garlic powder, or parmesan cheese for extra flavor


1. Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 400°F (205°C). This high temperature is perfect for getting crispy wedges.

2. Optional Dips: Serve your potato wedges with your favorite dips like ketchup, ranch dressing, or a sour cream and chive dip.

3. Prepare Potatoes: Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly. Cut each potato into wedge shapes. To do this, cut the potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 3-4 wedges depending on the size of your potatoes.

4. Soak Potatoes: Soak the potato wedges in cold water for about 30 minutes. This step is optional but helps to remove some of the starches, resulting in crispier wedges.

5. Dry and Season: Drain the potatoes and pat them dry with a towel. In a large bowl, toss the wedges with olive oil and Smitties seasoning salt. Make sure each wedge is well coated. For additional flavor, you can add garlic powder, fresh herbs, or a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

6. Arrange on Baking Sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it. Spread the potato wedges in a single layer, leaving a bit of space between each wedge for even cooking.

7. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes, or until the wedges are golden brown and crispy. Halfway through the baking time, flip the wedges to ensure they brown evenly.

8. Serving: Once done, let them cool for a few minutes before serving. They are best served warm.
