Crispy fries...that aren't fried.
I love fries, but hate deep frying. Perfect potato wedges are easy to make in the oven with a little time and know-how!

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Bring a pot of water to boil (I used a 4-quart Dutch oven filled about 3/4 full). While the water is coming to a boil, cut the potatoes into 16 wedges each. I did this by cutting each potato in half, then cutting each half in half, and so on. If the water is not boiling by the time you finish cutting the potatoes, drop them into a bowl of cold water to prevent browning.

  • Step 2

    When the water boils, add the teaspoon of salt. Place the potatoes into the boiling water (using a slotted spoon if you have held them in cold water) and boil for three minutes, then drain in a large colander and allow to sit in the colander for five minutes.

  • Step 3

    Place the potato wedges into a large bowl. Pour the oil over the wedges, season with salt, and use your hands to carefully toss them in the oil. Spread the potato wedges over the baking sheet and pour excess oil over them.

  • Step 4

    Bake the potato wedges for about 13 minutes then remove them from the oven and carefully flip them (I have found tongs to be best for this task). Bake for another 12 minutes or until desired brownness is achieved.

  • Step 5

    Remove the wedges from the baking sheet and place on a plate lined with paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve immediately with desired condiments.
