Lemon Pepper Potato Wedges

Lemon Pepper Potato Wedges are a wonderful baked alternative to french fries that have a bright, crisp, and peppery taste easy to make at home.

What I love most about these potatoes is that I didn’t feel the need to dip them in anything. No barbecue sauce or ketchup needed for these fries to taste good. They were plenty tasty all on their own.

However, my husband really enjoys dipping them in sriracha fry sauce and I love them paired with curry mayo.

I think the lemon pepper potato wedges would also be good with Apple Bacon Turkey Burgers and Honey Lime Fruit Salad. That would be a wonderfully hearty meal that would be such a kid favorite.

Top Tips

Cut the potatoes thinly and evenly to insure that they cook quickly and at the same time.

If you have a hard time cutting evenly using a mandoline is a really handy way to get even slices out of ingredients. Always use a hand guard on the food you are slicing and do not touch the blade.

What kinds of potatoes can I use?

Although I have used many different kinds of potatoes for fries, the best ones are the regular russet potatoes. They produce the best oven and regular fries which is a reason why they are so popular.

Can I use frozen fries for this?

Yep! I do that all the time. Bake the fries according to the package directions omitting the olive oil in the recipe below. You can toss the fries with the seasoning beforehand or after. Whichever is up to you.

Bright, crisp, and peppery these Lemon Pepper Potato Wedges are the perfect compliment to any burger.
