  • 6 russet potatoes, or other baking potatoes, cut into wedges (do not peel)
  • olive oil, regular or extra virgin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, fresh cracked
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • dash chili flakes

Creamy Garlic and Parmesan Cheese Dip:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup caesar salad dressing
  • 1/8 cup parmesan cheese, grated


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF (or 200ºC).
  • In a large bowl, mix together the potato wedges and a small amount of oil. Add the garlic salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, parsley, salt and red chili flakes, mixing to coat evenly. Place on a cookie sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes.
  • If you want a crisper skin on the potatoes, broil them for a few minutes at the end of the cooking time.

To Make The Garlic Parmesan Dip:

  • To make the dipping sauce combine sour cream, dressing and cheese together in a small bowl. If you really like it hot, add a few drops (or several) of hot sauce.

Serves 4 to 6.

Serve the potato wedges with the creamy dip on the side.


  • You can use vegetable oil instead of olive oil. I use olive oil because it is so healthy for us and adds a nice taste. Use whatever oil you prefer that tolerates cooking at a high heat.
  • Vary it up a bit. You can also use onion salt, cayenne pepper, or even a bit of dried oregano if you want.
