Cheesy Potato Wedges

Tonight was pick-a-steak Saturday at our house. We have recently acquired a large amount of meat (ground beef, t-bones, sirloins, rib eyes, oh my!) from my father-in-law’s farm, so of course we had to put it to good use! Tonight’s pick: sirloin, with a side of potato wedges and zucchini chips.

Now about these potato wedges…so easy and so delicious with a just a bit of a kick and the right balance of crispy edges and tender insides. What better side to go with our sirloin? It doesn’t get much better than steak and potatoes.


  • 3 russet potatoes
  • About 2 tbs olive oil
  • 3 pinches each of garlic powder, salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash potatoes, pat dry with paper towel. Then slice each potato in half, then slice the halves in half and throw into plastic Ziploc bag.


Combine olive oil and seasonings in small bowl, then pour into bag with potatoes. Shake bag around to make sure potatoes are well covered. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway.


When finished baking, sprinkle cheddar cheese over wedges to your desire. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and potatoes are nice and tender when touched with fork.


Don’t they look good? Excuse my inability to take a pretty food picture.

The best part about these (besides being easy) is that you can pretty much use any seasoning and/or cheese you want to! I was actually planning to use parmesan…and then I realized somehow parmesan did not make it into the grocery cart last week. Cheddar made a good substitute though!

And I must say these potato wedges were fantastic with this sirloin!


Happy sirloin Saturday to us! Make these soon and enjoy!
