Crispy Garlic Baked Potato Wedges  (+ Air Fryer Method)

These easy garlic baked potato wedges are tender and fluffy in the middle with a lightly spiced, crispy shell—perfect for tossing with garlic and parsley for an addictive appetizer, side, or snack!


– 4-5 red or small russet potatoes cut into small wedges – 1 Tbsp of canola oil – 1 tsp of salt – 1 tsp of chili powder – ½ tsp of paprika – 2 Tbsp of potato starch (for extra crispiness) optional – ¼ C of fresh parsley chopped – 1-2 Tbsp of garlic finely chopped – Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Cut potatoes into small wedges and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with salt, chili powder (or pepper), paprika, and potato starch if using. You could do this step in a bowl and mix it all there. Toss well to coat and spread in one even layer on the tray.

Bake for 10 minutes, remove the tray from the oven and sprinkle the garlic. Put back in the oven and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes until fries are crispy and golden brown.

Toss with fresh parsley, adding additional salt and pepper to taste, if needed. Serve immediately with condiments of choice.
