There are many variations on making Potato wedges,
You can make them with peeled or skin-on potatoes,
You can use a marinade or season with just about any
dry ingredient you can think of.
You can deep fry them or bake them or fry them in a skillet.
Once your wedges are done you can top them with
shredded cheeses, sour creme or just dip them in ketchup
whatever you prefer. I am sharing several different wedge recipes today,
I'm sure you will find one you like.


All you need are a bottle of Italian salad dressing
(or any herb dressing with oil),
salt, pepper and some onions.
Preheat oven to 250°F.

Remove skin from potatoes and cut them into wedges
the larger the wedge, the longer it taked to bake.

Put the wedges in a bowl and pour Italian dressing over top.
Mix gently until all the potatoes are well coated.

Place potatoes on a cookie sheet or large casserole dish.
Bake uncovered in the oven for about 30 to 40 minutes.

Turn potatoes every 15 minutes.

Add some cheese over top of the potatoes several
minutes before removing from oven.
