Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • Arrange potato wedges on a baking sheet; drizzle with olive oil and season with thyme, pepper, and salt. Toss wedges with a spatula to coat evenly.

  • Roast potato wedges in the preheated oven for 15 minutes; flip and continue roasting until soft in the center, about 15 minutes more. Transfer wedges to a platter and sprinkle with cheese.


You can also make a sweet potato version by using ground cinnamon and omitting thyme, pepper, and cheese.

You can use vegetable oil in place of olive oil.
