Baked French Potato Wedges

Jean made two dishes in the Gilmore Park Church community kitchen. Jean told us that we will be the guinea pigs to test the recipes as this is the first time she’s making them.

The first dish is the Baked French Potato Wedges. These potato wedges are crispy, flavourful and cheesy. I’m sure kids will love this, especially mine.



  • 4 medium russet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 8 wedges each
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese



Preheat the oven to 375F.

_MG_4412_edited-1Placed the potato wedges on a parchment lined baking sheet with the cut side down. Brush half of the butter mixture on the wedges.

Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.

_MG_4434_edited-1Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese which gives the wedges more cheesy flavour and texture. Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, until the cheese melted and crisp.

A great side dish to go with the Baked Chicken with Pineapple, coming tomorrow.

The good thing about this Baked French Potato Wedges is that there is no salt added to it as the cheese will impart the saltiness to it. Under normal circumstances, fried potatoes cry for salt.
