These roasted red potato wedges are wonderfully flavorful. Seasoned however you like they make a terrific side dish or an easy after-school snack.

We love to dip ours in homemade ranch, turn them into loaded potato wedges, or top them with cheese.

Roasted Red Potato Wedges

It is no secret that roasted potatoes are a regular side dish at our house. These oven roasted red potatoes are simple to make and the seasoning options are endless. A stocked spice drawer makes it easy to change up this simple side on a whim.

Italian seasoning is often used, but these chili powder-seasoned potato wedges are my current favorite. Tossed in olive oil and then salt and pepper along with garlic and chili powder they will be your new favorite as well.

Crispy Red Roasted Potatoes

For oven-roasted potatoes, red skins are often my preferred potato. They are typically smaller in size and it takes no time at all to cut them into even-sized wedges. My usual rule of thumb is to cut them into eighths.

For the best results when oven roasting, keep the potato wedges as even in size as possible. Second, make sure they are evenly coated with oil. A light coating of olive oil delivers crispy roasted potatoes every time.

Lastly, make sure you have an even, single layer of potatoes on the baking sheet. Overcrowding will result in cooked potatoes but they won’t develop the delicious crispy edges we all love!
