How do you cut 1/2 inch potato wedges?
Cutting potato wedges isn’t hard to do as long as you follow a process. Cut the potatoes in half to start and then cut them in half again. Keep doing this cutting method until you have your potato wedges.
It’s also easier to cut the potatoes if you lay the cut them down flat on the cutting board. This makes it so that they don’t move or roll about while you’re cutting them.

Adding raw potato wedges onto the grill is a fast and easy way to start grilling them immediately. It may take a few more minutes to cook them but you’ll love how they turn out.
The easiest way to tell that they’re done cooking is to do the fork test. Once the cooking time has passed, use a fork and give the wedges a poke.

Can you freeze potato wedges?
Yes, you can. If you decide that you want to save the wedges for later, just pop them in the freezer. Add them to a freezer-safe bag and seal it tight.
