Potato wedges are irregular wedge-shaped slices of potato, often large and unpeeled, that are either baked or fried. They are sold at diners and fast food restaurants. They are usually seasoned with a variety of spices, commonly paprika, salt and pepper.
In Australia, potato wedges are a common bar food, that are almost always served with some kind of sauce. One may use sour cream, sweet chilli sauce, ketchup, or some combination of these. In Ireland, spicy potato wedges are a common item served at hot deli counters.
