How to Make Potato Wedges

DSCI1996Potato wedges…so very easy to do and rustle up at home. Here’s how!


Serves 1

Allow 150-200g potatoes per person (about 2 potatoes the palm size of a medium sized hand)

1 tsp sunflower oil per potato portion

1/2 tsp paprika per potato portion (optional) 


  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6, 200°C electric.
  • Clean or peel all the potatoes and then cut into quarters, lengthways. If rather chunky, cut each quarter in half again, lengthways again.
  • Place the uncooked potato wedges on a non-stick baking sheet or a baking tray covered with either a silicon sheet or greaseproof paper.
  • Allowing 1 tsp per potato portion, lightly brush the individual wedges with oil and dust with paprika.
  • Place in the centre of the hot oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.
