Greek Lemon Roasted Potatoes

They’re pungent and wonderful and pair nicely with almost everything, absolutely delicious, and easy to prepare.



  • 4 large russet baking potatoes (8 medium),  peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (3 lemons)
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano, preferably Greek oregano, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place potatoes  in a metal roasting pan large enough to fit potatoes in a single layer. Add 1 cup water, olive oil, lemon juice, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Toss potatoes until well coated.

2. Bake, uncovered, until fork-tender and brown on the edges, about 50 minutes. Turn potatoes halfway through for even browning; add water if all the liquid has been absorbed, before they have fully browned. If desired, garnish with oregano; serve.
