  • cutting board
  • mixing bowl
  • one or more baking sheet pan
  • aluminum foil


  • 8-12 oz white potatoes, per person (a typical large potato)
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Preheat oven to 500ºF.
    If it has a convection setting, use that. (Some convection ovens will try to convert to non-convection by lowering the temperature to like 475º, but keep it at 500º.)
  • Line the sheet pan(s) with aluminium foil

Slice each potato:

  • On the cutting board, cut the ends off and discard
  • Halve the potato lengthwise
  • Keeping the halves together, cut each potato crosswise, into 1/4"-thick half-oval pieces
  • Place the pieces in a bowl

Prepare the potato pieces

  • Pour enough olive oil to coat all the pieces
  • Toss to coat until well-oiled and mixed
  • Arrange in a single layer on the sheet pan(s)
  • Season with salt and pepper to your tastes, but cover pretty well


  • Roast for 20 to 22 minutes or until wedges are tender when pierced with a fork
  • Potato pieces will stick to the foil — peel them and place in serving dish
