Rinse potatoes very well but don’t peel them. Cut each potato lengthwise in half and then halve each half. Halve also the remaining pieces. That way each potato should be cut into eight wedges.
Soak the wedges in cold water for 10-15 minutes.Preheat oven to 400 degrees Line a large baking tin with parchment paper.In a large bowl combine olive oil, salt and spices, except parsley.
Drain potatoes and dry them out with a tea towel (or thick paper towel). Place them in the bowl with the spices. Rub them with the seasoning, until all potatoes are evenly covered.Arrange the potato wedges on the prepared tin, preferably with the cut side onto the paper. Make sure they are not overlapping one another. If they are too many to fit evenly in the tin, bake them in two batches.
Bake for about 20 minutes and then invert them, using a spatula. Bake for another 10-15 minutes, until dark, golden and crispy.Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Let cool for 5 minutes and then serve.
Spices: You can use for your baked potato wedges the spices listed or any other spices you like!
Soaking the Potatoes: Don't neglect to soak the potatoes in cold water. This allows them to lose some of the starch and become crispy while baking. If you skip this step, they will not be as crispy.
Make-ahead: If you want to cut the potato wedges ahead of time, you can prevent cut potatoes from turning brown by soaking them in a bowl of cold water mixed with vinegar or lemon juice.
The key to crispy potato wedges is to flip them only once. In order to do this, you must wait until the potatoes are golden in color and crispy and then flip them. This will be at the approximate 20-30 minute mark. Not a minute sooner!
