  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  1. Cut potatoes into 4 wedges.place in a large bowl and drizzle olive oil over.
  2. Sprinkle seasonings over and toss until coated
  3. On a parchment lined jelly roll pan arrange potatoes in a single layer.

Recipe Notes


  1. Wash your potatoes 
  2. cut your potato down the center, then cut that half in half again so you have a moon shaped section. 
  3. If you feel your section is still too thick or large you may slice it in half again


Most small  potatoes have a thin skin that only adds some delicious extra texture and crispiness. But if you feel your potatoes skins are extra thick and chewy you can peel them before seasoning.
