    Sorry, but real Greeks do not use butter on these potatoes! Use olive oil instead, much healthier and delicious.

    These potatoes were absolutely delicious, and the leftovers make the best home fries I've ever had for breakfast. Thank you.

    LOVE this recipe! I used Organic Fingerling Potatoes (tiny purple, red and golden) and they were DIVINE! I also used Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and it was really good. You want to drink the juice that remains in the pan!

    Such a great potato side dish recipe. It was packed with flavor, thanks to the chicken stock and seasonings. It's great with so many main dishes!

    To avoid mushy potatoes (they're very tasty but also quite mushy using just the recipe), do the following when you take off the foil for the second stage of cooking, once most of the liquid is absorbed/boiled off. Turn the oven up to 425°F and heat about 1/4 cup of oil on top of the stove. Pour the oil onto the potatoes and stir them around. Then roast for an additional 30 to 40 minutes - as long as it takes to get them crisp.

    I use lemon flavored olive oil instead of butter and it enhanced the flavor. The recipe was so easy and absolutely delicious.

    Easy and delicious! I forgot to put the Parmesan on it but that didn't matter I also used olive oil instead of butter.

    I used mrs dash seasoning instead of salt. And after the cooking time was done, I let the potatoes in the oven to broil. I wanted them crispy a little bit. Thanks Kit :) Made for Kittencal Tag-o-ton

    My family & I love these potatoes. I have made the potatoes with butter and another time substituting the butter with olive oil. I preferred the flavour of the olive oil version, but both were sensational!
