The weather was beautiful out today. It was time to fire up the grill and grill pork steaks. I was looking for a new potato recipe to make, so I went food.com. I have recipes saved there to try later. I had this one in my saved file. I thought it was strange to have water or broth in the recipe. So I did a search on the site….the number one potato recipe on that site was the same one. I had to make it. It has 449 reviews and 5 stars. Greek Potatoes
Oven Roasted Greek Potatoes
- 8 large potatoes,
peeled, cut into 6 – 7 wedges 47 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 cup of
- 1 T dried oregano (I did not measure…I probably used at least 2 T)
- juice of 1 lemon ( The grocery store did not have any lemons, so I used bottled)
- sea salt
- black pepper
Preheat oven to 420F. Use a pan big enough to hold the potatoes. Spray with Pam. Put potatoes and garlic in the pan. Sprinkle with oregano, salt and pepper (season generously). Mix the wet ingredients and add to the potatoes. With clean hands toss around to make sure everything is mixed up evenly. Bake for 4o minutes. Stir around to get the white sides up. Add 1/2 more water ( I used 1/4 cup broth and 1/4 cup water) if pan appears to be getting dry. Season lightly with salt, pepper and oregano. Pop back into the oven and bake for 40 more minutes. Do not be alarmed if they seem overcooked…they are delicious.
The pan is soaking…but well worth it. One person suggested spraying with pam…which I did. Another said to line pan with aluminum foil. I am afraid after baking for 40 minutes, it would be hard not to tear the foil when tossing. I might try parchment paper next time. This recipe is a keeper!
