Cheesy Potato Skin Wedges

Cheesy Potato Skin Wedges...I thought I would make something really easy for dinner tonight. So, I made these potato wedges. They are super easy to make, except that it takes some time to boil or bake the potatoes first. You just have to plan ahead a bit.

This time around I chose to make the potato wedges a bit more simple. Just to stay away from too many calories...But you can easily add more toppings if you like. Along with the cheese, you can add bacon or ham, and then add a dollop of sour cream. They are great either way you make them. Hope you enjoy...

You will need:

  • 5-6 russet potatoes
  • 1/2-2/3 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1-2 green onions
  • salt/pepper, to taste


1. Clean potatoes very well.
2. You can boil them in salted water (about 1 TBS kosher salt) until tender(about 40 minutes) or bake them at 350 for about 1 hour and 15 minutes or until fork tender(make sure you pierce them before baking).
3. Let cool and cut into wedges. Scoop out some of the potato pulp.

3. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Sprinkle some olive oil and bake wedges for at 450F 15-20 minutes or until crispy.

5. Top with cheese and bake until cheese is melted and golden.
6. Sprinkle with green onions.
