  • Cut each potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 2-4 wedges (depending on size. so that you end up with 6-8 wedges for each potato.
  • Add the wedges to a large mixing bowl. Spray with low-fat cooking spray (or If using olive oil, drizzle with about two tablespoons olive oil) then toss everything together to coat.  Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Spread the wedges in a single layer over a large baking sheet lined with nonstick foil and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.

Notes

The nutrition information is reflecting low-fat cooking spray.  Using olive oil will result in higher calories.
Tips: 
  • For fluffy wedges, use a waxy potato like Red potatoes, or Yukon Gold (although Russets will work too).  
  • Be sure to scrub the potatoes well as potatoes are not cleaned before being stocked at the grocery store.
  • Try mixing all the seasoning and spices in a Ziploc bag and then use it to toss the wedges in.  It’s easier and gives good coverage.
  • When using cooking spray - For extra-crisp wedges, 1/2 way through the cooking time, spray again with the cooking spray and return to the oven.
