Love love loved these!!!! Wonderful flavor and easy!!! My store didn't have fresh oregano so I used dried. I could see using any herb you would like with this recipe because the real flavor comes from that lemon juice infusing with the olive oil!!! The potatoes really soak it up and the flavor is to die for!! The white pepper was a really great flavor booster too, it gave a different edge from the usual black pepper. Will definitely make this again and again!!! Thank you!!!
Wonderful recipe. I am on a lo-carb diet but tried one piece to rate it. The main source is the rest of the family. It recieved raves. I had fresh rosemary and oregano and of course used fresh lemon and zest w/olive oil. Thank you.
