Spicy Cheesy Dairy Free Potato Wedges

I love quick and easy homemade potato wedges and even more so if they are Spicy Cheesy Dairy Free Potato Wedges. They are versatile in terms of seasonings you can use to make them. I have posted my simple potato wedges recipe before. This time I made the wedges a little different. I added dairy free cheese to them so yum.

What kind of potatoes to use

The best potatoes to use for wedges are the Russet potatoes. You can use any other kind but will take longer to cook and may not turn crispy enough.

How to cut the potatoes

  • 🥔 Cut the potato in half lengthwise.
  • 🥔 Then cut each half further in to half lengthwise again.
  • 🥔 If the potato is still thick cut it further

Seasoning the potatoes

Make sure to grease the potatoes first with olive oil. This enables the seasoning and cheese to stick to the potatoes.

Baking the potatoes

  • 🥔 Bake in a single layer.
  • 🥔 Turn half way through to make them golden on both sides.
  • 🥔 Bake for one hour at least to fully cook the potatoes.
  • 🥔 If you have roast setting on the oven use that to cook the potatoes. This will make wedges even crispier.

Serving Suggestions

Serve these wedges as a side to any of your favorite main dishes or with any of the allergy friendly chicken or meat recipes from the blog.
