Muffin Pan Roasted Potato Wedges Recipe


  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)
  • Non-stick cooking spray


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
    • Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly. Leave the skins on for extra crispiness.
    • Cut each potato into wedges. Aim for about 8 wedges per potato, depending on size.
  3. Season the Potatoes:
    • In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, dried rosemary, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper.
    • Add the potato wedges to the bowl and toss to coat them evenly with the seasoning mixture.
  4. Arrange in the Muffin Pan:
    • Place 2-3 potato wedges in each muffin cup, standing them up vertically. This will help them get crispy on all sides.
  5. Roast the Potatoes:
    • Place the muffin pan in the preheated oven and roast for 35-40 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy on the edges.
  6. Add Parmesan (Optional):
    • If using Parmesan cheese, sprinkle it over the potato wedges during the last 5 minutes of roasting. Allow the cheese to melt and become golden.
  7. Garnish and Serve:
    • Remove the muffin pan from the oven and let the potato wedges cool for a few minutes.
    • Use tongs or a fork to carefully remove the potato wedges from the muffin pan.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
  8. Enjoy:
    • Serve the muffin pan roasted potato wedges hot as a side dish or appetizer.


  • For extra flavor, you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper or chili powder to the seasoning mix.
  • These potato wedges pair well with dipping sauces like ketchup, ranch, or aioli.
  • Experiment with different herbs and spices to create your favorite flavor combinations.
