Heat vegetable oil in deep-fat fryer according to package directions.


Keep the potatoes frozen until ready to fry.

Fry the frozen potato wedges according to fryer and package or case directions. Batch cook to maintain maximum quality of fries.

CCP: Heat to 135 degrees F or higher or at least 15 seconds at the completion of the cooking process. If the manufacturer instructions on package or case have a higher temperature, follow those recommendations.


Transfer the potato wedges to steamtable pans for service.

CCP: Cover and hold for service at 135 degrees F or higher. Check the temperature every 30 minutes.


Serve the potato wedges immediately. If that is not an option, place them under a heat lamp to keep potatoes crisp. The potato wedges may also be covered with aluminum foil and placed them in the warmer. Cut holes in the aluminum foil to allow the steam to escape.


Measure a ½ cup serving of wedges to determine how many wedges to serve.
Portion each ½ cup serving with a spoon or tongs. Each portion provides ½ cup starchy vegetables.

CCP:  Hold and maintain product at a minimum temperature of 135 degrees F. Check temperature every 30 minutes. Discard any leftovers.
