Ranch Potato Wedges: Simple Side

Heather says:

Once a week I try to serve a completely kid friendly meal. One of their favorite side dishes is absurdly simple and is still healthier than hitting the golden arches.

Ranch Potato Wedges

  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1* – 2 TBSP ranch seasoning *We like ours lightly seasoned.

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Slice the potatoes into wedges, typically I get 8 per potato, unless it’s quite large. Toss the wedges in a bowl with the olive oil and ranch seasoning. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, turn the wedges, and bake for an additional 15 – 20 minutes.

    I like sprinkling the wedges with dill weed and garlic salt or powder after tossing in olive oil. Serve them up with some sour cream for a treat.

    We do this too, but use Old Bay seasoning. Not sure if this a regional seasoning or not, but it’s very useful!

    Mmm, sounds good… sometimes I feel like recipes like this aren’t included in cookbooks because they’re too simple, but I need all the simple recipes I can get! 🙂

    My 12yo ds started making these about a year ago and we’re addicted. It’s his favorite thing to make and I’m glad!

    (Oh, and yes, it’s the dry powder.)

    Mine love sweet potato fries.

    By Ranch seasoning, do you mean the dry powder used to make dressing, or Ranch dressing in a bottle?

    we love these too! I’ve actually never bothered to season them – just salt. We eat them with ketchup, or if we’re in a at-the-boardwalk kick, we sprinkle vinegar on them. Yum.
