Parmesan Potato Wedges with rosemary

When it is cold outside nothing can be more comforting than a piece of meat in the oven served with crunchy roast potatoes... yum! Roast potatoes are always so welcomed at the table. Sometimes it is nice to make a change and to try something slightly different.

Last night I did these potato wedges which are known in Italy as "patate sabbiose " which means sandy potatoes due to their texture.  A nice alternative to the classic roast potatoes and a very yummy one too!

Once you have parboiled the potatoes you sprinkle them with Parmesan, olive oil, breadcrumbs and chopped rosemary. The result is fragrant herby taste potato wedges with a crunchy bite. Be warned: they are moreish, once you start you can't stop!

  • Prep Time : 25 minutes
  • Cook Time : 50 minutes



Peel and chop the potatoes into wedges then put them in a sauce pan covered with salty cold water and bring to the boil. Cook for 5 minutes

In the meantime chop finely the rosemary

Drain the potatoes, put them in a roasting tin and sprinkled them with the rosemary, flour, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper, Parmesan and a good glug of olive oil.

Mix it all up well

Roast the wedges for about 30-45 minutes at 200C until they get golden in colour. Turn them occasionally to allow them to roast evenly.

    Oh wow that is such a marvelous idea. They can even work for the dieting portions of my life :). Rosemary wow, I think I have a lot of it and the coating in flour and breadcrumbs sounds very good. Lovely, Alida.

    Ooh, coating potatoes with parmesan sound absolutely divine. I usually cut potatoes into wedges (and sometimes with parsnips too) and coat them in a paste of olive oil, garlic and rosemary then roast them in the oven. Next time I do this, I’m adding parmesan too 🙂

      Yes they make a change but I like the way you do them too. Very nice with rosemary!

    This looks delicious! How much Parmesan though, I don’t see a measurement in the recipe. Thanks, Gina

    • Alida

      Thank you Gina! I forgot the put the measurement in! 2 tbsp of Parmesan will be enough.
      Ciao Alida

    I make a recipe almost like yours. except I add garlic and fresh parsley with my rosemary. No flour or bread crumbs. I roast my potatoes in the oven, when cooked I sprinkle,with a good amount of parmesan cheese. then I put them under the broiler until lightly golden. DELICIOUS ! I am going to try your recipe it sounds so good also.

      Wow that sounds great too! That is a good gluten free alternative too. Thank you for this tip!
