It's love at first taste with these delicious baked potato wedges! This easy and healthy recipe seasons red potato wedges with smoked paprika, onion and garlic powder, chives and imitation bacon, tosses them with olive oil and bakes them to crispy perfection in the oven!
What you'll need to make these amazing vegan baked potato wedges:
- Red potatoes - my favorite for texture and color, but others work well too.
- Smoked paprika - if you don't have 'smoked' paprika, it'll still be great with plain paprika.
- Onion powder, garlic powder, and salt - gotta get the flavor in!
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil - the depth of flavor added by 'extra virgin' is real!
- Bacon Bits (most varieties are vegan, but be sure to check the ingredients!) and dried chives. Or make your own vegan bacon bits!
How to make baked potato wedges:
Scrub your potatoes and then cut them in half lengthwise.
Take the halves and slice them lengthwise each into thirds or fourths.
Expert cooking tip:
For crispy potato wedges, try to keep the thickness of the slices at or under ½ inch. Also, if they are fairly uniform in size, they'll bake at the same speed.
Toss your potato wedges, seasonings, and olive oil together until the potatoes are well coated.
Pour the potato wedges out on a pan-sprayed baking sheet, making sure that they are not stacked on top of one another - a little space helps them crisp up better!
Folks, when these potato wedges are done baking, there is nothing that's gonna stop me from eating them!!! They are simply fabulous and everyone (vegan or not) simply swoons over them!
