Potato Wedges

These potato wedges are very easy to make and require very little preparation. They can be made with either standard potatoes, or sweet potatoes.

Potato Wedges


  • Potatoes (allow 1-2 medium sized potatoes per person)
  • Vegetable oil (rapeseed oil is healthiest)
  • Your choice of seasoning. For example: curry powder, rosemary, mixed herbs, smoked paprika, chilli powder, salt and freshly ground pepper.


  1. Preheat the oven to 200° C/400°F/gas mark 6
  2. Scrub the potatoes all over to clean the skin.
  3. Cut the potatoes into wedge or chip shapes (no need to peel them).
  4. Transfer the cut potatoes to a large bowl.
  5. Add about 1 tbsp oil per 3 medium-sized potatoes.
  6. Add the seasoning of your choice.
  7. Stir the potato wedges around in the bowl until they are evenly coated with oil and seasoning.
  8. Spread out the wedges on a baking tray, and bake in the oven for around 40 minutes, turning half-way.


  • If you put baking paper down on the baking tray, the wedges will not stick and you will not need to wash the tray afterwards.
  • Wedges of sweet potato and parsnip can be roasted in the same way.
