MMMMMMMM. These potatoes wedges are loaded with all your favorite Mediterranean spices and served with a cool, creamy tzatziki sauce!
The secret to getting the perfect flavor combination is to roast the wedges with dried herbs and olive oil and then finish them with chopped fresh herbs and lemon zest.
How do I make Mediterranean potato wedges?
Grab some baby reds and slice them into wedges! Combine olive oil with dried rosemary and oregano along with a few spices. Coat fries in the seasoning mixture and spread them in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet.
The secret to getting the most perfect crispy wedge is to roast the potatoes at 450 and then crank the heat to 500 to finish them. This will allow them to cook through initially and then crisp up.
While the wedges are in the oven you can combine the tzatziki sauce ingredients.
When the wedges are done, toss them in fresh dill and lemon zest and enjoy!
Can I use a different kind of potato instead of baby reds?
Sure! Russet potatoes work great for wedges too, just make sure you cut them into small, uniform wedges.
Yukon gold potatoes will give you a creamier, more tender inside but it will be harder to get the outside as crisp as a baby red or a russet.
Sweet potatoes would also be great in this recipe. I would imagine that their sweetness would play well with the savory seasonings used in this dish!
What should I serve with Greek Potato Wedges?
If you’re looking for more a balanced meal, go ahead and top them just like I did with my Greek Salad Fries. Piling a classic combination of cucumber, tomato and onion dressed in balsamic vinegar atop a bed of Greek potato wedges is always a win in my book!
Otherwise, I like to enjoy my wedges with my favorite Greek Turkey Burger. Loaded with classic Greek flavors and topped with feta cheese, tomato and onion, wedges and burgers are a match made in heaven!
If you’re looking to stay vegetarian, a classic Greek salad would be a delicious accompaniment to these wedges!
How do I reheat leftover fries?
I mean I don’t think you’ll have any leftovers, but if you do…
You can preheat your oven to 400 degrees, spread the wedges in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake them for about 5 minutes or until they are heated through.
I’d sprinkle them with a bit of additional salt after reheating just to make the flavors pop too!
Are these potato wedges vegan?
Yes! The wedges are made with no animal products which makes them a great option for vegans. But really they’re a great option for vegetarians and meat eaters alike!
The tzatziki sauce is not vegan. However, you could make it vegan by using a vegan sour cream!
Tips for making these Greek Potato Wedges:
- Slice the potatoes as uniformly as possible. This will ensure that they all bake evenly.
- When picking your potatoes, try to choose taters that are the same size. This will make it easier to cut the same size wedges.
- Don’t skip the fresh dill and lemon zest at the end. The flavors of the fresh herbs and citrus are what make the dish taste so amazing!
