How to Bake Potato Wedges
You’ll also need a large baking sheet, some tinfoil, and a baking rack (this is what I use). The assembly takes very little effort and should take less than 10 minutes. Perfect for those nights you’re in no mood to fuss around with food.
The wedges will bake on an oven-safe rack that’s been placed over a large baking sheet lined foil. You’ll bake them at 450 degrees (F) for 30 minutes. At this point you’ll crank on the broiler (or increase the temperature to the broiler setting, depending on how your oven works) and let them bake for another 3-5 minutes. This step is what gets the outside layer so darn crispy.
