  • Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon and place on a baking sheet. Let cool completely and give the pan a shake to rough the potatoes up just a bit, be careful not to break the wedges though. Drizzle each side with oil.

Notes

  • Don't skip par boiling the wedges before baking them. This helps them to get nice and fluffy.
  • Let the wedges cool before tossing them in the oil.
  • Bake the wedges on a baking tray in a single layer. If they are overlapping, they won't get crispy all over.
