Parmesan Garlic Potato Wedges

DSCN2383One of my favorite “cheat” foods is any kind of fries or potato wedges… YUM!!

There are so many ways you can make them at home and keep the calories and fat down. Once you find a great method of cooking them, you can start to experiment with different flavors.

This week I went with parmesan garlic potato wedges and they turned out absolutely amazing!!!

These potato wedges are so easy to whip up on a whim, for a party or just a girls night in… And they’d probably be delish with a glass of wine.

Tip: When trying to make these healthy and counting them into your macros or calories, make sure to weigh out the potato and adjust the nutrition accordingly.

For example, when I scan the bag of russet potatoes in the MyFitnessPal app, it says there are 110 calories per potato. BUT… If you look closer on nutrition labels, you’ll see the weight per serving – which, for russet potatoes, is usually 5.5 ounces. Now, the potatoes in the bag can range from 5.5 up to 10 ounces per potato (if not more), which means if you’re not weighing out what you’re cooking, you could be consuming double the calories you think you are.

So just watch for that so you don’t go way over in your carbs 🙂

Ingredients:

2 russet potatoes (weighing a total of 18 oz.)
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. seasoning salt
2 tsp. Parmesan cheese, grated (I used Kraft)

Optional dipping sauce: Ranch Greek yogurtDSCN2397

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. If the potatoes look good you can leave the skins on; I choose to peel mine.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half longways, then in half again, then in half again (3 times). You will end up with 8 wedges per potato.
  3. Place them in a large bowl, add olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, seasoning salt and Parmesan cheese. Toss to fully combine.
  4. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, take them out and flip them and bake for another 10 minutes until fully cooked and golden. Serve immediately.DSCN2390
