Roasted New Potato Wedges with Smoky Aioli – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Potatoes are an inexpensive and tasty side dish, appetizer or snack that when cooked in a hot oven, can become something similar to house fries.  House Fries, remember those special potatoes that you could always count on at your favorite casual restaurant, are something I truly miss during this pandemic, so I thought I’d make a batch at home, and reminiscence about the simplicity of a truly delightful dish.

New Potatoes, either red or white skinned, have a creamy interior, yet crisp up beautifully in the oven, and a quick wedge-cut provides three distinct edges that can attain golden brown coverage.  Potatoes wedges shouldn’t be without a dipping sauce and what better than to serve them with a homemade aioli with a hint of smokiness.  A blender is your best friend when it comes to making homemade mayonnaise or aioli.  A few egg yolks, a squeeze of lemon and a stream of oil, and you have yourself something trained chefs would be proud of.  A pinch of smoked paprika adds another note of flavor to an already dreamy condiment that will enhance these spuds.

To Prepare:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (425 if using a gas oven).  Place potatoes on a sheet pan and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until deep golden brown.
  2. While potatoes are roasting, in a blender, add egg yolks and lemon juice.  Turn blender on and while blender is running, slowing drizzle in oil, until mixture emulsifies (thickens).  Add 1 tablespoon water, paprika and salt and continue to blend until smooth.
  3. Remove potatoes from oven and place in a serving bowl, along with aioli.  Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.  Enjoy!
