The first thing I do, that is different to other popular recipes, is blanching potato wedges before placing them in the oven. That keeps moisture inside the potato while it is baking and, as a result, gives us that extra tender texture of the inside. Besides seasoning will spread more evenly on the surface of blanched potato. And the second thing that I can share with you is that there is no way you can overuse seasoning. My top choices would be definitely garlic powder instead of fresh garlic (it burns in the oven) and dry dill (the aroma it leaves is mesmerizing).

When I need delicious and easy-to-make side dish for any dinner, I prefer to make this recipe instead of fried potatoes or even the mash. And all thanks to unique texture and taste of potato that you have after baking.
