These Baked Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges are one of my families favorite side dishes! They’re easy to make and oh so addictively delicious!
I love how the parmesan that they’re coating in helps the outsides become nice and crisp while the insides say perfectly soft and tender.
Also that last few minute so broiling is crucial is it helps crispen them up as well. (Is crispen a word?? It should be.)
And of course I’m obsessed with that garlic-parmesan flavor combination. It works wonders to fries and baked potato wedges.
These are good with ketchup but I like options so I made a second simple dip to pair with them. Which is totally optional.
It’s a light mayo and Greek yogurt based dip that’s perfectly rich and creamy. And it’s lightly seasoned with dried basil because you don’t need a lot of flavor.
The wedges themselves have a great flavor on their own.
These are perfect for those times when you’ve got a french fry craving but don’t want to splurge so much.
They’re baked (or technically roasted) instead of fried and they’re coated with olive oil instead of using the traditional vegetable oil used for french fries.
I mean, these things are good enough that you’ll forget all about that main dish. Pass more potatoes wedges please and thank you!
Love love love these! Hope you do too :).

Baked Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges
- 4 large Russet potatoes, unpeeled, scrubbed and rinsed (about 2 - 2 1/2 lbs), then cut into wedges
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan, divided, plus more for serving
- 2 tsp minced fresh rosemary
- 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder, or 1 Tbsp minced fresh garlic*
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 Tbsp minced fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
Creamy basil fry sauce
- 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 2 1/2 Tbsp milk, then more to thin as desired
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 2 pinches salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray an 18 by 13-inch baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
Scrub and rinse potatoes. Cut each potato in half then cut into fairly large wedges (about 8 total per potato). Place potatoes on baking sheet.
Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle evenly with parmesan, rosemary, garlic powder and season with salt and pepper (about 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper). Toss lightly. Then spread into an even layer, laying potatoes on one cut side.
Roast in preheated oven for 30 - 35 minutes, turning potatoes to opposite cut side halfway through. Broil during last 1 - 2 minutes to crispen them up more.
Sprinkle with a few more tablespoons parmesan and the parsley. Serve warm.
For the sauce: Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl. Serve with potato wedges.
*I've tested these with both fresh garlic and garlic powder and I prefer the garlic powder because it doesn't develop that slightly bitter taste from being cooked at such a hot temperature for so long. If using fresh garlic, I recommend tossing it with a tiny bit of olive oil and waiting until halfway through to add it.
