Prepare to be amazed by the sheer simplicity and irresistible blend of flavors in this delightful recipe for Baked Garlic Parmesan Potato Wedges! These wedges are not only an ideal side dish but also a stellar appetizer for any gathering.
To be completely candid, this fresh take on semi-french fries has truly left a lasting impression on me. The remarkable crunch, combined with the delectable essence of garlic and Italian seasonings, is nothing short of extraordinary. The allure of garlic and cheese atop fries is undeniable, and I’m confident you’ll find it impossible to resist, just like I do.
Fries hold a special place in my heart – my younger self, and my brother, with our seemingly boundless metabolism, used to embark on midnight french fry missions to local fast-food joints. Whether it was Wendy’s, Carl’s Jr., or the golden arches of Mickey D’s, we were in for the crispy potato treasures. Even during breakfast outings at iHop, my order consistently leaned towards chicken strips and fries. While pancakes have their charm, they can’t quite compete with the crispy allure of deep-fried potatoes paired with a generous side of ketchup.
As the years progressed and I stepped into adulthood, I attempted to curb my fry fixation by occasionally ordering them as a side dish when dining out, as opposed to adhering to my former motto of “fries with everything” that I staunchly upheld for two decades. More often than not, I opt to share my portion with my amazing husband – he doesn’t mind relinquishing a few… or perhaps 60%. His generosity knows no bounds.
Now, when the hankering for fries strikes while I’m comfortably clad in my loungewear, I opt for a homemade batch instead of placing a takeout order. And let me tell you, the natural cut fries from Wendy’s are no match for these splendid baked garlic parmesan potato wedges! So when I proclaim that these wedges are absolutely worth crafting, rest assured that my enthusiasm is genuine.Print
