These garlic parmesan baked potato wedges are so delicious.

While I love dipping them in the classic ketchup, I could totally see using chick fil a sauce, ranch, or a sour cream dip.

Parmesan crusted potato wedges are the best!

Those crispy cheesy edges that you get when baking are hands down my favorite part.

The freshly grated parmesan is absolutely necessary in this recipe, so please take the extra few minutes to grate it yourself.
