Greek Lemon Roasted Potatoes, Martha Stewart

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by annbb

This is a fantastic and different way to roast potatoes. It's great with grilled or roasted chicken and was featured in Martha Stewart Living with trout. From Martha's magazine: "Oregano is Greek for "joy of the mountain." Greek oregano has a more mild flavor than the Mexican variety usually found in the spice aisle of your supermarket. Look for Greek oregano at Italian or Greek markets." (Or you can order it from, a wonderful herb and spice shop.) Enjoy!

I liked them, but found the lemon flavor really strong. I halved the recipe and thirded the lemon juice and it was still too strong. But, it was easy and flexible with the result that I wanted for a roasted potatoe. Thanks!!
