  • 7 medium golden yukon potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp of cornstarch
  • ¾ cup of hot water
  • 3 Tbsp of olive oil
  • 5 Tbsp salt
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese optional


  • Line a baking dish with tin foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Then evenly drizzle the olive oil on a cookie sheet and set aside.
  • To cut potatoes into wedges, first cut the potato in half vertically, then cut into quarters again vertically until you have 4 wedges. One potato will make 8 wedges.
  • In a bowl mix the cornstarch and hot water together and place in the microwave for 90 seconds or until a paste has formed. Rub the cornstarch paste on each wedge until all the potatoes have been coated.
  • Place potato wedges on the foil-lined cookie sheet. Be sure not to crowd the pan because crowding will cause them to steam and not brown. Cover with tin foil and roast in a 425 degree oven for 10 minutes. Then remove the foil and allow to cook for another 15 minutes. At this point, give the potatoes a flip and let them continue to cook for another 15 minutes, or until the wedges are golden brown and tender.
  • While still piping hot, sprinkle potatoes with salt or parmesan cheese and serve with your favorite dips.
