Ingredients

  • 6 potatoes, medium
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp parsley
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp rosemary
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Cut each washed potato into 8 wedges.

  3. Place the wedges in a bowl together with the sliced onions. Add the oil and the seasonings, then toss to coat.

  4. Place the potatoes in a greased baking dish and bake for 45 minutes. Turn them half way and sprinkle the cheese over the wedges.

  5. Bake until the cheese is melted and potatoes are golden brown. Then, serve with ketchup or ranch dressing to enjoy this luscious dish.

Recipe Notes

  • Since we are not peeling the potato skin, it is important to remove the dirt from your potatoes. Rinse them under cool water then gently scrub each potato using a vegetable brush or your hands. Avoid scrubbing too hard or the skin will go away, too. 
  • Keep the wedges in a single layer on the baking dish. Piling the wedges on top of each other will prevent them from having crispy brown exterior and they will cook unevenly. And you want your baked potatoes crispy on the outside, right?
