Today is a special Secret Recipe Club event and I am sharing Seasoned Parmesan Potato Wedges! For those who haven’t seen my previous Secret Recipe Club posts, this club includes a group of bloggers who are assigned a different blog each month and secretly make a recipe to post on their specified reveal day. Since this May has an extra Monday, all the groups are coming together to celebrate Picnic and BBQ recipes to kickoff summer.
I was assigned April of Angels Home Sweet Homestead. April lives on a 3 acre homestead in Southern Indiana, has 5 children, and 2 grandchildren. Her blog includes cooking, gardening, creative DIY, housekeeping tips, and other ideas for living a frugal lifestyle. April was also in charge of the Secret Recipe Club when I joined 3 years ago. I have actually been assigned to her blog once before when we were in the same group in October 2014. I made her Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pudding Parfaits for Chad’s birthday. This time, I picked her Seasoned Parmesan Potato Wedges. Here are a few more recipes from her blog that would be perfect for summer picnics and BBQs: Southern Fried Apples, Simple Cucumber and Onion Salad, Amish M&M Cookies, Chili Cheese Potato Wedges, and Fried Biscuits.
These Seasoned Parmesan Potato Wedges come together easily for a perfect summer side dish. Russet potatoes are sliced, then coated with olive oil, seasonings, and cheese. They are baked until golden and crisp.
I love this quote from April describing the potato wedges: “It’s like french fries and baked potatoes became best friends.” The crisp exterior gives way to a soft, almost creamy texture in the center. If you want both sides to be extra crisp, flip them halfway through the baking time- make sure the first side is golden before flipping. Grease the baking sheet, aluminum foil, or parchment well to keep the potato wedges from sticking and breaking.
Seasoned Salt (Seasoning Salt) is a blend of salt and spices, generally paprika, garlic, and onion powder. It is available in most supermarkets (be careful of the ingredient list) or you can even make your own.
Here is what everyone else made for the event:
Seasoned Parmesan Potato Wedges
Adapted from Angels Home Sweet Homestead
3 medium-large russet potatoes, scrubbed but unpeeled
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
Freshly chopped parsley
Grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment. Grease well with oil.
Slice each potato lengthwise into 8ths. Place in a large bowl and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss to evenly coat.
In a small bowl, mix together the parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, and seasoned salt. Add to the potatoes and toss again to evenly coat.
Arrange the potato wedges, one side down, in a single layer on prepared baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven until the potatoes are fork-tender and golden brown, 25-30 minutes.
Serve immediately topped with parsley and parmesan.
