Ingredients

  • 4 Large Yellow Potatoes skin on
  • cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Onion Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F, line one or two sheet pans with parchment paper, and fill a large bowl with cold water.
  • Slice the potatoes lengthwise, place the halves face down. then holding your knife at a slight angle slice the halves into wedges. Place the sliced wedges into the bowl of cold water. Let wedges soak in water for 10-15 minutes. This removes some of the excess starch and will keep the wedge fry crispy as it bakes.
  • After letting the wedges soak. drain off all of the excess water and towel dry the raw wedge fry potatoes.
  • Place dried potato wedges in a large bowl and drizzle the extra virgin olive oil on top. Toss slightly to coat the potatoes with the oil.
  • Add the breadcrumbs, dried oregano, paprika, garlic powder, onion salt, and kosher salt. Using your hands toss the potato wedges multiple times until all of the wedges are generously coated in breadcrumbs and spices.
  • Place the wedge fries in a single layer on the parchment lined pans, Be careful to not overcrowd the pan.
  • Bake wedge fries for 45 minutes, flipping them once, until they are golden brown and crispy. Let cool slightly before serving.
