Whole30 / Paleo Oven Roasted and Toasted Potato Wedges

Whole30 Roasted Potatoes

One of my favorite things about Whole30 is taking foods that are thought of as boring and making them a really delicious component of a meal. My family has missed grilling out with burgers, fries, beans, and corn since summer has left us! I thought it would be fun to make one of our summertime favorites- potato wediges- over and transform it into a Whole30 compliant side dish to accompany our big green salad and Big O Bacon Burgers from Nom Nom Paleo!


My favorite french fries from restaurants are equal parts salty and spicy and have a great CRUNCHY exterior. To achieve the right spice level I added Sea Salt to our recipe- the grain is bigger than normal table salt and tends to be stronger- and paprika.

The crispiness comes from two steps: 1. Coating the wedges indicidually in the spice and oil rub. This ensures the each side of each wedge has the potential to crunch. 2. Broiling them. You have to keep a close eye on the oven when broiling so as to not over do it. Broil one side, take the wedges out of the oven, flip them over, and broil the other side. Get them out just as they are turning brown and starting to bubble.




For an extra layer of flavor, I add a 1/2 Cup of chopped parsley to the potatoes after they have started to cool. You could also add a nice truffle oil! I hope you love these Whole30 Potato Wedges as much as we do!
