Happy Hump Day!  Its “The Happy Hour” here at The Slow Roasted Italian every Wednesday we will be bringing you fantastic dishes you would find at happy hour.

Today we have oven baked Garlic Wedges (Fries).  These are fabulous, flavorful and crispy.  The perfect fry out of your own oven.  The garlic seemed overwhelming while it was baking, but the flavor was perfect when it was done.  The corn starch helps create a fantastic crust on the fry.  I served these with ranch dip, a perfect accompaniment.  I hope you enjoy.

We enjoyed these so much I made them again tonight for dinner.  Yes, you heard me…  Following a long day with Em, poor baby is sick for the first time, we just wanted to relax with some comforting fast food.  So, instead of wasting the money to go out and get garbage food I made these fries again!! Oh so good!

Prep Time 10 minutes

Total Time 50 minutes
Course Side Dish
Cuisine American
Method Oven
Servings 4


  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, cut into wedges
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch/cornflour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450° F.
  • Combine the garlic and oil in a large bowl, warming it in the microwave until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer 5 tablespoons of the oil (leaving the garlic in the bowl) to the baking sheet, coating it well.
  • Add the potatoes to the bowl with the garlic mixture and toss to coat.
  • Wrap the bowl tightly in plastic wrap and microwave on high power until the potatoes are translucent around the edges, 3 to 6 minutes, shaking the bowl to redistribute the potatoes halfway through cooking.
  • Combine the cornstarch, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the hot potatoes and toss well to coat.
  • Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake, turning once, until deep golden brown and crisp, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve with your favorite condiment.
