Potato wedges are wedges of potatoes, often large and unpeeled, that are either baked or fried. They are usually sold at fast-food restaurants, served with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce. They are not considered French fries.
This is a recipe that I tried unintentionally I must say. I actually wanted to make french fries and didn’t have enough cooking oil. I then decided to make potato wedges instead. This recipe is a tiny bit healthier than deep-fried potatoes I initially wanted to make and that is a plus for me.
How to cut potato wedges
Cutting wedges is quite easy actually. It is so much easier than cutting fries and you don’t even need to peel them. Just cut a potato in half. Halve potato, then halve EACH HALF again, so you have 4 pieces from each half. Voilà.
I had to mix peeled and unpeeled potatoes because my 12 year old picky- eater does not like unpeeled potatoes. I asked him to help with the peeling, so its a win-win.

I enjoy these with some barbecue sauce or with some blue cheese salad dressing. You can also sprinkle some parmesan for that cheesy taste.
