Easy Roasted Potato Wedges

Spice it up!

Jojos, steak fries, whatever you call them, these super easy roasted potato wedges are guaranteed to be a big hit!

The seasonings I use in this easy roasted potato wedges recipe are very basic. This is the all-purpose seasoning we use in our house, and it goes really well with these potatoes. You can (and should!) use any blend of spices you love. I love to use my BBQ spice rub for a sweeter, smokier flavor. The blend I’m using here is actually my tried-and-true all-purpose seasoning blend.

To create the spice blend, just place all of the ingredients (except the potatoes and oil!) into a bowl or jar, and give it a quick stir/shake to combine.

Prep the potatoes

Give your potatoes a good scrub with a kitchen scrubber and dry them off with a towel.

Cut the potatoes into quarters lengthwise, creating large wedges.

Time to toss everything together

In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with the oil to fully coat them.

Sprinkle the potatoes with the spice blend, tossing as you go to ensure good coverage

Line ’em Up

You can just toss these on a baking sheet and go, but I find I get the best results on these easy roasted potato wedges with a slightly more organized approach. Line your potatoes up on a sheet pan lined with foil, parchment or a silicone mat. You want them all facing the same way, which makes it easier to tip them to the other side partway through cooking.

Turn up the heat!

Place the potato wedges in a 400-degree oven for 30 minutes, then flip (or ‘tip’) each potato onto its other cut side.

Flip & finish!

After you flip each potato wedge, pop them back into the oven for another 20 minutes to finish.

Let them cool on their skins

When you take thee easy roasted potato wedges out of the oven, give each one a flip so it is resting on its peel-side. This will help keep the cut sides from getting oily or soggy as they cool.


Once slightly cooled, these bad boys are ready to eat! You can enjoy these simple and easy roasted potato wedges next to a burger or steak, or as a dunker in some delicious soup. Or, you can stand in the kitchen and eat them right off the pan, which I have definitely NEVER done. 😉

Our favorite way to enjoy them is with a little chopped parsley and some Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce to dip!
