Roasted Greek Potatoes

"These potatoes are just like the ones at our favourite Greek restaurant...Paros Taverna. They are lemony with just the right balance of garlic and oregano. I never weigh the potatoes...and I always double the liquid we like lots of the reduction. I have reduced the salt to 1 tsp as the lemon/garlic/herb takes care of most of the flavour. And most of us don't need that much salt. The roasting time is appoximate as to the size of the potatoes."

  1. Our family's favorite potato recipe. I always double everything except the amount of potatoes and then after the potatoes are done, I reduce the liquid and pour it back over the potatoes. We even love the leftover potatoes the next day.
  2. These greek potatoes were wonderful, lemony and garlicy with a nice amount of herbs. I used the suggested amount of sea salt and fresh ground pepper. So tasty, the potatoes were tender and very flaovrful. I did cook the potatoes for about 1 1/2 hours, it took awhile for the liquids to reduce. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.
  3. These were very good, quite lemony. I reduced the amounts of both salt and pepper. These make a nice change from the usual. Thanks for posting!
  4. This is now my favorite potato recipe. It's simply wonderful. I didn't peel my potatoes since the skins were nice and thin and I cut some of the potatoes so they'd be more uniform in size. Other than that, I followed the recipe as it's written. I wish I'd doubled the sauce as suggested in the intro. Oh yes, I also used a bit less salt since I'm trying to reduce the sodium in my diet. I just ground sea salt over the potatoes before roasting. Thanks for posting.


Yikes!! My daughter had fun in PaintShop Pro!! What she can do with a picture. My husband and I live in the "bush" and hour from the closest town. Life here is quiet, yet so much more busy than when we lived in the "city". We grow our own veggies, several kinds of berries, and grow lots of hard neck organic garlic. We have 60 chickens, 4 dogs, 1 cat, 1 bird. Quite the menagerie. I make all my own breads, and sell them (along with the eggs). I have a group of friends whom I make extra goodies for. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="New Kids Participation Banner"> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src =""> <img src="" > <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
