So let’s talk about these Greek-style lemon roasted potatoes. There are a lot of different versions of lemon roasted potatoes out there. What I like about this recipe is the short ingredient list. Simple. I like simple.

I wrote this recipe using red-skinned potatoes. You could use nice yellow-fleshed potatoes too. I would avoid waxy potatoes or starchy baking potatoes because those can sometimes be mealy and fall apart.

    these were really good, thanks ( except I think I may have forgotten to set the oven properly, cuz the taters were slightly under-cooked – oh well, they tasted just fine!)

      Wow, this recipe is an oldie but a goodie! I think it might be time to redo this one with proper pics and everything.

      I’m happy the recipe tasted good – even if it was slightly under-cooked. (Maybe the size of the potato chunks required more cooking time?) In any case, glad you enjoyed it. :)
