Greek Crispy Potato Wedges (Whole30 Paleo)

Greek Crispy Potato Wedges (Whole30 Paleo) – perfectly crispy oven roasted red skin potatoes flavored with a homemade Greek seasoning blend.  The perfect family friendly side dish!

I feel like I’m constantly trying to come up with the perfect crispy roasted potato.  I usually end up with a too soggy potato or burned to a crisp chip.  With this recipe, I feel like I finally came pretty darn close.  These Greek Crispy Potato Wedges are just the right amount of crispy on the outside and have the most awesome flavor from my homemade seasoning blend, making this a side dish winner!

I can always make my family happy with some roasted potatoes at dinner.  These Rosemary Roasted Potatoes and Whole30 Fries are two of our favorites!  For this recipe, I wanted to bring in some Greek inspired flavor, so I created a new homemade seasoning blend to add to my collection.  Disclaimer: I am not Greek and don’t claim to know how to cook authentic Greek food!  This is simply my own version of crispy potato wedges with some Greek inspired spices like oregano, dill, garlic, and onion.

Okay, here’s the secret to the crispiness…first I blotted the cut potatoes really well with paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible.  Then, after adding oil and the seasoning, I placed them all cut side up (not crowding) and did NOT turn them during cooking.  The result was lightly browned super crispy wedges, perfect for dipping!  Although I have not yet tried this method with russet potatoes, I think it would work well.

    I made these with your zucchini burgers and loved the meal! We all really enjoyed it. I also appreciated the tip about how to get the perfect crispiness- I always seem to end up with mushy, soggy potatoes. This time however they were great. Thanks for sharing!

    Love the “wedge” shape. Less time consuming opposed to thin, long fries. Plus they were great for dipping!
