I want to make some homemade oven baked wedges, so obviously I looked up how, and I know I have to boil them for a few minutes before cooking, but something I don’t understand is why do I have to put olive oil on them before sticking them in the oven? I’m trying to lose 10 pounds so any unnecessary calories I’d hope to avoid, unless the olive oil is absolutely necessary

THANK YOU FOR THE RESPONSES

      I still have to eat. Better than McDonald’s

      You can leave the oil out but its going to taste horrible
      if youre trying to lose weight, best just to cut the potatoes out entirely. Stick with vegetables.

      Yea but why will they taste horrible? What is the oil doing to improve the wedges?

      Who uses Olive oil? I used beef tallow in order to feel like I'm sitting in a 51 mercury enjoying my McDonald's Fry's at an original ray kroc location.

      That’s just what all the recipes say

        without the oils/fats, you're not gonna get any crisp, so it'll be just boiled potatoes. that's why they're necessary.

          I agree that it would taste better coated in oil but in the end without the oil isn’t OP making quick baking baked potato wedges? I do plain potato cubes in the air fryer and they turn out fine

            i'm guessing OP has a conventional hot air oven like I do, where that just doesn't work like an airfryer.
            I'm speaking from some semblance of experience, since deep frying got permabanned where I live. but we still want the same results

          boiled potatoes taste great as long as you fry them afterwards

        Boil potatoes for satiety maxing. You can season the water if you wish

        every side that isn't covered in a little oil just gets burnt basically. if you lower the temp and use no oil it will taste like nothing. the oil is also crucial to season the fries with salt and whatever else you want to use. without oil it doesn't stick

        highly doubt that, eating nuggets and salads from mcdick is healthier than what 90% of people "cook" at home

    Potatoes have a glycemic index about the same as sugar. Not something to eat if you're interested in weight loss. If it helps, just imagine that they're sugar wedges instead of potatoes, your body will.

    I want to make some homemade oven baked wedges too, but something I don’t understand is why do I have to add potatoes to the olive oil before putting it in the oven? I'm on keto trying so any unnecessary carbs I'd hope to avoid, unless the potato is absolutely necessary.

    Also I'm going to make coq au vin, but can I skip the wine?

    Thanks for your help.

    hot oil accomplishes crispiness by drawing water out from the surface. dry heat can do this as well but it's less flavorful and much easier to burn whatever you're trying to make crispy. seasonings also don't adhere well to a dry surface. guaranteed every wedge you've eaten at a restaurant has been deepfried and not baked

    Without oil it would be inedible dry shit.
    Consider baking entire potato, there you don't need oil, but potato is a horrible choice of food to loose weight anyway.

    without oil the surface wont get crispy, it will dry up and become like a flexible skin
    also, its sugar you should cut off to lose weight, not fats
    fats are good for you, except vegetable oils

    The oil is going to pseudo fry them to give a cripsy exterior.
    It'll taste a little more bland and lose some of the more pleasant texture, but it'll still be edible.
    Eating healthy means you have to sacrifice pleasure which is unavoidable.

    If you are going to omit the oil I'd say go for an air fryer. Unless you are using a nonstick baking sheet those potatoes will glue themselves to the pan without a small amount of oil to atleast coat the bottom.
