Oven Roasted Greek Potatoes – new potatoes tossed in olive oil, Greek seasoning and lemon. These potatoes are SO good! Only takes a minute to toss together. Everyone raves about them!
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.
