Cheesy Potato Wedges

This may sound silly but these cheesy potato wedges helped put this blog, Oh So Delicioso on the map. Years ago (2012) I pinned this recipe and while it floated around on pinterest for a few months and nothing happened one day I woke up to an email in my inbox. She said she had pinned our recipe AND featured it on her blog. Then made this comment-

hello dearie! Heads up! I’ve featured your recipe here and as of right now your recipe has been repinned more than 1100+ times (whoot whoot)

I really didn’t think too much would come of it but I was totally wrong. We got thousands and thousands of hits that week, and from there it slowed down a bit but since then we’ve kept going strong. I mean, we might not have always had the best photographs or the best writing but our recipes have always been tried and true. Hopefully we can keep proving that to you!

How This Cheese Potato Wedges Recipe Was Developed

We went to visit my in-laws one year in Orlando {we scored some ridiculously cheap airplane tickets}. They took us to fun restaurant which had awesome fries an appetizers. These cheesy potato wedges! When we came home we craved them liked crazy so we tried to make them. These cheesy potato wedges were so easy to replicate and fast to fix this has become one of our go-to recipes. Such a crowd pleaser!

  1. Start by washing potatoes and cutting them into steak fry size. Toss them in EVOO or Avocado oil + seasoning salt. My VERY favorite salts are Redmond’s Real Salt. They have a seasoning salt I literally put on everything. EVERYTHING. I also like to add a dash of redmond’s real salt garlic salt. Redmond’s pink salt is mined from the only ancient mine here in the US. It’s a better saltier salt than any other pink salt I have ever tasted. (My kids and I even did a taste test just to make sure!) You can use it every day, and has many (60+) unrefined healthy minerals!

2. Make the special creamy ranch sauce….no it is not just ranch! Slather a nice layer on your platter, add fries, and drizzle a little bit more on top.

  1. I’m trying these tonight, but changing it up a bit..
    Instead of cutting potatoes, we’re trying frozen wedges..
    we’ll be adding salt, pepper, garlic & onion powder to the wedges, then cooking them in a fry daddy, then adding everything else after there done.. Then of course melt the cheese! Also having 7 layer dip! Mmmm!

  2. What exactly do you mean by ” !Ranch Sauce “? I know Ranch Dressing but Ranch sauce, in a ‘packet’? What might that be, pray tell?

    1. Thanks for bringing that to my attention! The !Ranch Sauce was a technical error by the recipe card. I re-wrote it and it worked this time. The “ranch sauce” is the combination of the ingredients of milk, ranch and sour cream. Does this make better sense?

  3. Your recipes are delicious!! These looks so good! That combo of ranch and sour cream make a delicious sauce!! These would definitely be worth the 40 minute wait! Thanks for sharing!

  4. These look so good. Bacon and cheese combo; you can never go wrong. That holds true with the sourcream and ranch. I will have to show my wife these, so we can make them for football Sunday. Thank you.

  5. okay i just had to comment….i’ve made these about 3 or 4 times and they are literally the BEST thing i’ve EVER eaten….i cannot even begin to explain. i will say this….i cut the recipe in half and eat the whole thing (it’s so bad, yet so good) ….thank you so much for sharing!

  6. Can you substitute Greek yogurt for sour cream? I have a ton of Greek yogurt left over from making muffins and wanted to know if I could use it for the sauce

    1. I bet you could! We have a friend who aubs Greek yogurt for sour cream all the time. Maybe a little bit more of a tangy flavor? If you try it tell me how it was!? I’m so curious.

  7. I am pregnant and this baby’s favorite recipe. And since the baby is in charge around here…cheesy potato fries it is.

    1. Annie! Truly one of the best things about pregnancy…the guilt-free ability to give in to whatever baby wants. It’s only maternal, right? I need to catch up on blogs, I had no idea you were pregnant again :) Congrats!

  8. This was one of the absolute best recipes I’ve ever made. I divided everything in half to make it for two people instead and instead of making your own fries or using steak fries, we used frozen crinkle cut and it was still very delicious. Highly recommended!

  9. OH MY WORD!! I made this tonight but cut the potatoes into 1 inch pieces and used store bought pork BBQ instead of bacon. My family thinks I am a Rock Star!!!
