I made these parmesan crusted potato wedges the other night for our Saturday night gathering with family and friends and served them as a side dish for dinner.
They turned out to be a hit! …But I didn’t take any photos. 🙁
So I decided to make them again so I could get the exact measurements of the ingredients, and take some photos. By the way, I am eating these delicious potatoes as I am writing this post. 😉
These potato wedges are so good and so tasty, …trust me…they will go fast!
How to Make Parmesan Truffle Oil Potato Wedges…
1. First, rinse the potatoes.
2. Working with one potato at a time, slice each potato in half, lengthwise.
3. Then slice each half, lengthwise into thirds. If the potato is very large and thick, you can slice each half into fourths.
4. Arrange wedges in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle over them with all the dry seasonings (full recipe card below).
5. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and turn them over. Then scatter with grated Parmesan cheese over them. Continue to roast for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
*QUICK NOTE: If you prefer, you can sprinkle cheese on both sides of the potato wedges for additional flavor.
6. Remove and drizzle with Truffle Oil flavored olive oil over the wedges and serve.
What is Truffle Flavored Olive Oil?
Truffle oil is good-quality olive oil that has been infused with either white or black truffles. Both types of truffles have an earthy, mushroom flavor and it’s primarily used as a condiment. It is a very delicate oil and should not be cooked with.
Where Can We Find Truffle Oil?
You can find truffle oils at specialty stores and at times even at Costco. But they will sell them only when truffles are in season, which is the fall and winter months.
You can also purchase them on amazon. There are two brands I prefer, both links are provided:
1. “Olioficio FAM” White Truffle Flavored Olive Oil, and the other
2. “Urbani” White Truffle Flavored Olive Oil. Both are products of Italy.
With a distinct flavor of the truffle oil and the crusted parmesan cheese on top, they turned out absolutely unique and delicious!
Try them! They are perfect to serve as game-grub or as a side dish. Serve them with a side of our Mom’s Quick Marinara Sauce for dipping!

these look marvellous. i’ve never been a fan of truffle oil tho; i think because it’s never been fresh when i’ve had it. i think that would make all the difference… yours are Delish i’m sure.
I hear you, Sherry. I don’t like it either if the flavor of truffle is overbearing. But in my recipe, it’s very subtle, and they really turned out fantastic. I hope you will try my recipe. Have a great day!
For some reason I’ve never tried making truffle fries at home but I loved ordering them in restaurants. I’m pinning this too 🙂
Thanks so much for pinning and sharing, Susan! Have a blessed day! 🙂
Oh yum, potatoes are an all time favorite of mine…especially truffle ones. I pinned to my Pinterest Potato Board to share with others.
