Then just follow the recipe instructions. Below I'll give you the essential tips to make the wedge potatoes crispy and delicious.

For this recipe you'll need:

  • Potatoes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Paprika
  • Ginger powder
  • Rosemary
  • Garlic cloves
  • Olive oil
  • Plain yogurt
  • Dijon mustard
  • Ketchup

What are the tricks for making crispy wedge potatoes?

The most important thing to make the potatoes crispy is that when you put them in the oven, you put them separate from each other.

If the potatoes are on top of each other, instead of baking, they will broil and become mushy.

It's also good to dry the potatoes well before you season them, because excess water will also cause them to broil rather than roast.

Roast the potatoes at a high temperature, so that they get crispier.

For the sauce, don't throw the leftover seasonings from the potatoes. Use them for the gravy, which tastes delicious.
