  2. Arrange potato wedges on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the wedges; season with thyme, pepper, and salt. Turn wedges with a spatula to coat with oil and seasonings.
  3. Roast potato wedges for 15 minutes, turn, and continue roasting until soft in the center, about 15 minutes more. Transfer wedges to a platter and sprinkle cheese over them.

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can also make a sweet potato version by using ground cinnamon and omitting thyme, pepper, and cheese.
  • You can use vegetable oil in place of olive oil.

The cooking time was just right. I did cut my potatoes into 8 wedges each, so they were a little smaller wedges. I used grape seed oil instead of olive oil. Tip: peel the potatoes and place in cold water. Cut them into wedges and then back into the cold water. Drain & DRY thoroughly, then coat with oil and seasoning.
