    evelyn/athens's Note:

    These potatoes are a staple in our home. Whether accompanying roast lamb or chicken, or just on their own, we have them a couple of times a week. They are delicious and the ones that get overly-brown in the pan and stick a bit are MINE! Clean up is a little tricky with this recipe, unless you line your pans with foil, but I find that just filling the pan up with hot, sudsy water and forgetting for an hour (something I apparently have no problem doing ;-)) helps a lot.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 420°F A reviewer has suggested spraying the baking pan with Pam - that sounds like a great idea!
    2. 2
      Put all the ingredients into a baking pan large enough to hold them.
    3. 3
      Season generously with sea salt and black pepper.
    4. 4
      Make sure your hands are very clean and put them in the pan and give everything a toss to distribute.
    5. 5
      The garlic will drop into the water/oil solution but its flavour will permeate the potatoes, and this way, it won't burn.
    6. 6
      Bake for 40 minutes.
    7. 7
      When a nice golden-brown crust has formed on the potatoes, give them a stir to bring the white underside up, season lightly with a bit more sea salt and pepper and just a light sprinkling of oregano.
    8. 8
      Add 1/2 cup more water if pan appears to be getting dry, and pop back into oven to brown other side of potatoes.
    9. 9
      This will take about another 40 minutes.
    10. 10
      Do not be afraid of overcooking the potatoes- they will be delicious.
    11. 11
      Note: I often melt a bouillon cube in the water; if you do, make sure to cut back some on the salt.

      I've used this recipe several times and it is FAIL PROOF!! I suggest using more garlic...I like 6 cloves and I also use vegetable or chicken stock instead of water. (I also pass on adding extra salt because of this). For an EASY EASY meal, you can toss in chicken breasts, or lean pork chops and bake dinner in one pan. I've used MANY different greek potato recipes and this is the best ever!

      This was fantastic! I pre-cooked the potatoes in the microwave for 10 minutes to shorten the cooking time a bit. I used a 3 lb. bag of small red salad potatoes, quartered, and that seemed perfect. I baked them for around half an hour and then broiled them for an additional 15 minutes or so, stirring every 5 minutes so they all got browned and yummy. We found that the kids liked them best with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on afterwards, and discovered we liked them with the Parmesan, too! Yum! We will be making these again. Thanks for the new recipe!

      Great recipe! I wiped the pan down with olive oil to coat prior to adding the ingredients to it & feel it must've helped as I had very little sticking. I used the 4 tsp minced garlic cloves and do not recommend using any more than this. I believe you could do wonderfully with half that. And as a sidenote, if you're having guests over, I don't recommend this recipe with the 4 tsp of garlic as the scent of it baking in olive oil for hours was overwhelming. Additionally, I followed the 40 min/40 min baking & I agree with the owner that these would be hard to overcook as they could've easily used another 20 min. Thank you for the great recipe that I'll use again!
