How to Cut Potato Wedges?
For crispy potato wedges, start by cutting the potatoes in half lengthwise. Then, with each half flesh-side down on the cutting board, cut in half lengthwise to get 4 wedges and cut each wedge in half again if you want around 8 wedges per potato.
How to Cook Potato Wedges?
To make your potato wedges in the oven, take the ice-soaked and seasoned wedges and add them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Make sure the wedges are in a single layer and transfer the sheet to an oven preheated to 450˚F. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the potato wedges are browned, crispy, and completely cooked through.
- Air fryer:
For potato wedges fried to perfection in the air fryer, preheat your air fryer to 400˚F and add the seasoned wedges in batches. Do not overcrowd and cook each batch for about 10 minutes before flipping with tongs and cooking for another 5 minutes.
For crispy pan-fried wedges, microwave the cut potatoes on high for 3 to 4 minutes and transfer them to an oiled pan over medium heat after seasoning. Cook each side in a single layer until golden brown and crispy.
What to Serve with Potato Wedges?
Baked potato wedges are best served with dishes like battered fish, burgers, schnitzel, katsu pork, fried chicken, roasts, fish fingers, tomato lettuce corn salad, cornmeal-dusted shrimp etc., but they can also be enjoyed on their own with toppings and dips.
Top your potato wedges with ground beef, onions, cucumbers, avocado, lemon, or peppers and pair with a dip like tartar sauce, herbed hummus, avocado sauce, sour cream, jalapeño ranch, BBQ sauce, and honey-mustard dip.

What's The Difference Between Fries And Potato Wedges?
There are plenty of differences between crispy potato wedges and regular potato fries. For example, fries are cut into julienne or strips with the skin removed, while potato wedges are cut into a triangle shape with the skin usually left on. Wedges are also seasoned, unlike fries, and although they can be deep-fried, they are more often baked or roasted, making them a healthier alternative to fries.
