  • 3-4 russet potatoes
  • ~2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or more
  • season salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • ~1 cup shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped green onions


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Scrub and wash russet potatoes. With skin on, cut potatoes into half (long ways), then cut into wedges.
  • Line potatoes on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Do not overlap potatoes. If not using parchment paper, grease baking sheet first.
  • Lightly sprinkle ~1 tbsp of olive oil onto potatoes, then lightly sprinkle seasoned salt and pepper. A little bit goes a long way for seasoned salt.
  • Bring baking sheet to oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Flip over potato wedges and lightly sprinkle with ~1 tbsp olive oil, seasoned salt and pepper. 
  • Continue baking for another 20 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked on the inside and crispy on the outside. Remove potatoes from oven.
  • On the same baking sheet, group cooked potato wedges together, with some overlapping, and top with shredded cheese
  • With the oven still warm (but turned off), bring potato wedges and cheese into oven and melt cheese for 5 minutes. If oven is no longer warm, warm melted cheese at 350 degrees for 2-4 minutes. 
  • Garnish with green onions and serve. Enjoy!
