Look how crispy these baked Greek potato wedges are. These wedges are perfectly seasoned from the inside out and baked in the oven until golden brown. Baked wedges are the best when you crave French fries but want to avoid frying.

Unlike the traditional ones, an upside of these wedges is that you can have them without a dipping sauce. The flavors from the marinade infuse them enough to stand on their own.

How to Cut Potatoes For Potato Wedges?

Cutting potatoes for wedges is easier than cutting French fries.

Cut the potato into half. Then each half is into two parts lengthwise.

For even cooking, use similar-sized potatoes and cut them equally thick.

I like to keep the skin on, but you can peel the skin if you prefer.

Why cook Potatoes before baking?

Most potato wedges recipe asks to season and directly bake them in the oven. Then why an additional step of cooking the potatoes?

Well, I have tried it both ways. Baking the potatoes directly gives crispy wedges, but the seasoning doesn’t quite get inside the potatoes.

So by briefly cooking the potatoes in salted water, potatoes soak up the seasoning well and reduce the baking time.

Another advantage of parboiling the potatoes is letting them cool completely, toss them in a marinade, and freeze after cooking. And next time you crave wedges, pop the wedges into a hot oven and bake until crispy.

Greek Marinade For the Potato Wedges

Tangy, garlicky and fresh, this Greek marinade is easy to put together.

  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Lemon Juice
  • Dried Oregano and Rosemary
  • Salt and pepper
  • Paprika(Optional) – If you need a bit of color, add 1/2 teaspoon of paprika.
  • Cumin (Optional) – 1/2 teaspoon of cumin powder for a smoky taste.

Tips For Extra Crispy Wedges

  • Cut the wedges to equal thickness so that they cook evenly.
  • Don’t cook the wedges completely. When you insert a fork in the thickest part of the wedge, it should still be firm.
  • Once the wedges are cooked, let them cool completely.
  • Season well with salt. Because there is salt while cooking, add salt accordingly to the marinade.
  • While baking, spread the wedges in a single layer without crowding the pan. If the pan is overcrowded, then the potatoes will start to steam and won’t crisp up.
  • Flip the wedges in between for even crisping.

Storage Instructions

If you have any leftovers (which is rare!), store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They can be reheated in the oven or microwave, although they may not be as crispy as when freshly baked. If you have an Airfryer, that is the best way to heat these wedges, making them crispy again.

Consume the leftover potato wedges within 2-3 days for the best taste and texture.

Serve With

The versatility of potatoes allows you to experiment with various grilled or roasted meats, salads, grilled veggies, yogurt, or sauce.
