Are potatoes healthy?

Potatoes have gotten a bad rap in the media for being unhealthy foods. But are they really that bad for you? Turns out: the bad part is the way you prepare them. If you eat loads of fried potatoes, then yes! Potatoes might contribute to weight gain. Eat potatoes in healthy ways like the recipes above, and they can be part of a nutritious diet. Here’s a breakdown on potatoes nutrition (source):

  • Potatoes have a good amount of fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin B, and other minerals and antioxidants. Many of the nutrients are contained in the outer skin, so recipes that peel the potato can remove some of these benefits.
  • Portion size and cooking methods have the most influence on the health effects of potatoes.
  • When enjoyed in moderation and cooked in a healthy way, potatoes can be part of a nutritious diet.

The best potato recipe ever? These easy Parmesan potato wedges recipe will have your friends and family singing your praises.


  • 1 pound yellow or red waxy potatoes, 2 to 3 inches long (about 6 to 7 potatoes)*
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Chopped flat-leaf parsley, as a garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut the potatoes into wedges (see the video below!). Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix until fully coated.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the wedges onto the sheet in a single layer, using your fingers to place some of the Parmesan cheese that falls off onto the top of the wedges (it doesn’t have to be perfect, just take a minute or so to do this).
  4. Bake the potatoes for 18 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and flip the potatoes.
  5. Reverse the baking sheet in the oven, and bake another 10 minutes until browned and crispy. Enjoy immediately!


*You can 1.5 or double the recipe if you have very hungry eaters. Just keep in mind that when you put two baking trays into the oven, the baking time will be affected because there is more surface area of food and more steam released. We’d recommend increasing the temperature to 450 degrees, and you’ll likely need a few more minutes in the oven to make sure the potatoes get crispy.
