Rosemary Garlic Potato Wedges

These homemade rosemary garlic potato wedges are so good and so easy that you may never again eat a frozen french fry. The rosemary can be omitted if you, or anyone else in the family, objects to it. Or substitute another herb - like oregano or parsley.


  • 1 kg potatoes, peeled and cut into thick wedges (4 or 5 medium potatoes)

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves, squished (or about 1/2 tsp garlic powder)

  • 1 tbsp crumbled dried rosemary, (or twice as much chopped fresh)

  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • In a large bowl, toss together the potato wedges, olive oil, garlic, rosemary and salt. Make sure everything is evenly coated.

  • Dump the entire mess into a 9 x 13 in. (22 x 33 cm) baking dish and bake at 425°F (220°C) for 50 minutes to an hour, stirring the potatoes carefully at least a couple of times during the baking, so that they brown evenly.

  • When done, the wedges should be crisp and golden on the outside, but soft and potatoey on the inside.
