A packet of Ranch Dressing Mix, grated Parmesan cheese, and bread crumbs really flavor up some potato wedges. Parmesan Crusted Ranch Potato Wedges are great on their own or dip them in Ranch dressing for a double dose of Ranch flavor.
Even though there are an infinite number of ways you can cook up potatoes, it’s easy to get in a potato rut.
These Parmesan Crusted Ranch Potato Wedges will breathe new life into your potatoes.
They cook up perfectly golden brown with a little crunch. They are tender on the inside and so flavorful.
Thick wedges of russet potatoes are coated in a mixture of melted butter and vegetable oil and then tossed in a mixture of bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, and ranch dressing mix with a little salt, pepper, and dried basil thrown in for extra seasoning.
No lack of flavor here!
About 30 minutes in a really hot oven and you have a side that will complement just about any meal or can even be eaten on their own.
