Potato wedges are always a delicious choice for a side dish, especially with meals like burgers, hot dogs, pulled pork, sloppy Joes, and more. 
These salt and vinegar potato wedges are made extra flavorful buy cooking them in a pot with white vinegar and salt before roasting them to get extra flavorful and crispy.
Salt and vinegar potato chips are a favorite of mine. I also love getting some curly fries at the fair and topping them in salt and vinegar (and then dipping in ketchup, too). Salt and vinegar is a favorite flavor combination of mine.
Potato wedges are a side dish we enjoy a lot, so incorporating the salt and vinegar flavor into them was perfect for me.

When making potato wedges, you want to choose large and blemish-free russet potatoes. Russet potatoes hold their shape when cooked and also have a texture that works well for fries and potato wedges. 
In this recipe, the skin is left on the potatoes. The skin adds flavor and texture to the potato wedges. They are cut into wedges and then cooked in a pot with water, vinegar, and salt until they just start to become tender.

Then you need to dry the potatoes on paper towels or a tea towel until you get as much of the cooking liquid off as possible. This is so that the skin and outsides of the potatoes can turn golden and crisp while roasting in a hot oven with some oil. 
When they are done, top them with some additional salt. This really enhances the salt flavor and I think all fries and potatoes need some salt on top when serving.

I like to dip these, and pretty much all fries and potato wedges, into ketchup. This is totally a personal preference, but is not necessary as they are already very flavorful on their own.

Plus they are perfect for salt and vinegar fans!

  1. Oh, my husband would love this. I bake potato wedges all the time but have never done this salt and vinegar spin. Sounds great!!

  2. we make oven fries alot too! i'm jealous that you can buy in bulk and keep potatoes good. in TN it is too humid... even in april. i bought a 5lb bag of potatoes and had to throw the last few away because they started molding. i'll have to try this twist- my husband loves salt & vinegar potato chips so he'd adore these!
