Fried Potato Wedges Recipe

Last month I shared a recipe from our annual Halloween dinner. I actually whipped up this fried potato wedges recipe (otherwise known as fried ogre fingers) then, but didn’t get a chance to share it.

Turns out it’s a bit of a kid favorite around here, so it looks like I have another opportunity…

Peel and cut your potatoes into long even strips.

Mix onion, salt and peper. Add flour and cornflour and mix thoroughly. Add water and mix into thick batter and set aside.

Crush cornflakes and set aside.

Heat pan of water to a boil. Add potato wedges and cook them just long enough that they start to soften. Drain and set aside.

Heat oil.

Dredge potatoes in batter mixture, roll in crushed cornflakes and fry until golden.

I find that this is sort of a comfort food type of meal. I am planning on trying to bake the wedges next time instead of frying them. I figure if I use a little egg, everything will stick together.

Do you have any experience changing a recipe from fried to baked? Any tips?

  1. oh my gosh these look SO good! I’m super excited to try them out! Definitely pinning.

    I’ve baked a number of different things but since the wedges don’t have fat of their own to seep out if it were me when preheating the oven I think I’d put a table spoon of butter (or enough so you can have a think layer spread and coat the bottom of the pan) in the pan so it gets melty and hot and then put the wedges into the hot pan with a thin layer of butter then flip them. I’ve done chicken this way but use less butter since the chicken has it’s on grease. Maybe do some spray oil too?
