One of my family’s favorite side dishes that I often turn to are french fries. Sometimes, I buy them frozen and other times I make my own.
I just love a crispy potato wedge with a yummy coated outside, and moist, fluffy inner! Over the years, I have perfected this recipe but do make different variations including this recipe which features onion soup mix.
So, you are probably wondering how you too can achieve crispy, and perfectly baked fries, well, the good news is it is pretty darn easy! Check out the below tips for everything you need to know about making potato wedges in the oven.

Ingredients for Baked Potato Wedges
- 2 lbs russet baking potatoes rinsed clean
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 packet of onion soup mix
Tips for Crispy, Golden Brown Potato Wedges
To make the perfect potato wedges, I have come to find that this simple process is all you need for a crispy outer, and fluffy inner.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
Line a baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil.
Scrub your potatoes clean and cut them into wedges. You can easily do this by cutting them in half the long way, and then in half again. Each normal sized potato makes about 12 wedges.
Add the wedges to a glass bowl and toss with the oil, and soup mix. Use your hands to coat all pieces evenly.
Place wedges on your baking sheet with space for them to get browned. You do not want them heavily packed on there.
They will cook for about 30-35 minutes time and will need to be flipped at the 15 minute mark to evenly brown on each side.
Once they are done, serve them with your favorite dipping medium. Ours happens to be Heluva Good! French Onion Dip.
Best Potatoes for Potato Wedges
My favorite wedge potatoes are russet, and yukon gold. However, if you’d like a little more color, red bliss will produce smaller wedges but also bake well.
