My son was coming over for dinner on Sunday, and his favorite meals are Chinese and steak {he definitely was not switched at birth}. My plan was to re-make my Mongolian Beef so I could take new pictures….but there was no sirloin at the grocery store…again!! Apparently sirloin is not really popular in Arizona??

While I was digging through the meat case, I came across a lonely Tri-tip roast and dinner went in a completely different direction! Loaded baked potatoes were out of the question, so I needed something just as delicious to serve along side my Santa Maria-Style Tri-Tip. I started throwing ingredients into the cart, and these Baked Parmesan-Bacon Garlic Potato Wedges were born….and they are seriously delicious. 🙂

How to make Baked Parmesan-Bacon Garlic Potato Wedges:

I started with 4 large Russet Potatoes…..

They were just standard sized not the super huge ones, that I cut into 8 wedges…..

Place potato wedges, oil, and garlic in a large bowl. Toss to thoroughly coat. Sprinkle Herbs de Provence, salt, and pepper over the potato wedges. Toss to combine…..

Spread potatoes in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet and sprinkle with 1/2 of the Parmesan cheese. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 20 minutes. Flip potatoes over, sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese and bacon…..

I probably could have chopped my bacon a bit smaller so the pieces would have a better chance to stick, but I was mesmerized by the delicious aroma of roasting garlic wafting through the kitchen. I mean seriously…bacon, garlic, and Parmesan cheese coming together to coat potato wedges is almost magical…and definitely distracting. 🙂

Notes:

  • Herb de Provence is my go to seasoning. If you prefer Thyme, then use Thyme…or Oregano…or Basil.
  • All ovens are different so cooking times will vary.
  • Potato size can also affect cooking time so keep an eye on them and don’t be surprised if they take more or less time…They’re more like guidelines. 😉 {said with a British accent while arguing with pirates}

Maybe I should have moved to Idaho, LOL
