Crispy baked parmesan wedges coated in a flavorful parmesan garlic spice blend and served with blue cheese ranch dipping sauce.Hey friends, I’ve got another super easy and super delicious dish for you today! So here’s the story… Once upon a time I was the kind of person that would make french fries all the time. Yes, fried in oil. I made them so much to the point that I started gaining weight. Eventually after realizing how bad it was I started eating healthier and I’m happy to say that I haven’t fried anything since. Now I baked everything and I’m glad I do because It’s so much healthier and tastes just as good, if not better than frying.
So let’s get down to it with these crispy baked potato wedges. They are coated with parmesan and a delicious spice blend, then drizzled with olive oil and baked until crispy and golden. The spices, garlic and parmesan give the wedges a delicious crust that’s just so good! The result is a crispy, crunchy exterior and a soft and fluffy interior. Now, I’m not one to make promises BUT I promise once you try these you will never forget them and might even consider giving up fried potatoes all together!
To make this dish perfect, I like to serve them with my blue cheese ranch dipping sauce but ketchup and hot sauce works just as well 😀
