Roasted Greek Potatoes


I made these potatoes to go with our Lemon-Oregano Drumsticks.  I wanted a quick and easy side dish and this fit the bill.  I was inspired by the potatoes at Taziki's Restaurant in town - these were extremely similar.  They take only a few minutes of prep time and then they just roast in the oven.  Very simple!  The result is a tender and flavorful potato.  They went perfectly with our Greek-style drumsticks.

1 pound red potatoes - small ones
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp Greek seasoning (or oregano)
Juice of one lemon (2-3 Tbsp if you use the green bottle)

Preheat oven to 375.

Wash and cut potatoes into quarters or more if they are big.  Toss potatoes in olive oil, seasoning and lemon juice.  Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.

Remove foil and continue baking for 20 to 30 minutes until nice and golden.

  3. The Greek seasoning is new to me too, but I can't imagine that's not fantastic on roasted potatoes. Will definitely be trying this one.

  5. Your potatoes look so delicious. The crunchy outside and soft inside. These would be perfect with my grilled T-bone. Yum.

  7. Roasted potatoes are one of the favorites of our family. The standard one is rosemary garlic, we love it. But your Greek one sounds so very good. I might accidentally spill a little feta on them.

  8. Chris - I would have added feta, but I didn't have any.
