5 stars from 1 rating of Homemade Potato Wedges

Have you ever just had a crazy food craving that needed to be sated? Well, for me it was potato wedges last night. I love the really thick crunchy potato wedges that have a lot of soft potato inside, dipped in ketchup. And I love that I have a handy recipe for cooking them super-quick in the oven, so I can get a nice healthy snack or side for dinner at the last second.

Honestly, it really doesn't matter what you eat with them. Last night, we had chili. But they would go great with my cheeseburger casserole or oven-baked chicken recipes. Although who needs an occasion, or the right dish, to eat potato wedges? Right?! And even better, my kids love them! And that's what really matters. Making good for your family shouldn't be hard, and these babies only took 25 minutes to make.

Let's see how easy it was, and you can have some tonight as well.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 25 min

Of course it would be super easy to buy some frozen potato wedges at the store and fry them up in some oil, but this version is so much healthier for you, especially with the coconut oil.

Coconut oil is high in healthy saturated fats that have different effects than most other fats in your diet. Coconut oil can boost fat burning and provide your body and brain with quick energy. It is is one of the few foods that can be classified as a "superfood." (Healthline)

And the health properties of potatoes, baked, not fried, and skin on, will surprise you. Many of the vitamins in most foods, is in the skin. Eating your potato wedges skin on provides you with a number of vitamins and minerals, like nearly half of your daily value of vitamin C, more potassium than a banana, a good amount of vitamin B6, fiber, magnesium, and antioxidants that have been proven to be great for your brain. (PotatoGoodness)

I bet you didn't know that you were getting so many great vitamins and minerals from something as simple as Homemade Potato Wedges. Unfortunately, if you were to purchase these from the store frozen and fry them at home, you would lose the majority of those nutrients through commercial processing.

And not only are these better for you, they're cheaper as well. All you need is a simple bag of potatoes and some seasonings. Enjoy!

        We always leave the skins on our potatoes as well, baked, mashed or wedges, lol. The skins have tons of nutrition! I use both onion powder and garlic powder in my recipe. :)

        I always leave the skin on potatoes, even when I mash them (I use red potatoes). Red potatoes would work for this recipe, too. However, the title is "Homemade Crunchy Garlic Potato Wedges". Do you replace the onion power with garlic powder or add both?
