Greek Lemon Potatoes

If I had these potatoes and then never ate potatoes again, I’d probably die happy. These are the potatoes I dream about and if I’m going out for Greek food, it’s only because of these. Not that I don’t like everything else! But dreams need to be fulfilled ya know? Creamy and lemony and savory, this recipe is the closest I’ve ever had outside of a restaurant. And they couldn’t be easier to make! A little bit of marinating, an hour in the oven and you’re done. This recipe gives a new twist on side dishes, great for having people over, or if you just want something different from roasted or mashed potatoes.

Slice potatoes into wedges or slice in half widthwise then quarter lengthwise. Set aside in a bowl of water while you put together the marinade.
-In a 1 gallon ziploc bag or a container big enough to hold the potatoes, combine the remaining ingredients.
-Drain and dry the potatoes and add to marinade. Marinate for at least 2 hours.
-Preheat oven to 400°F, layer potatoes in the bottom of a 9×13 glass or pyrex roasting pan and pour half the marinade in. I had to use two roasting pans.
-Roast for an hour, turning periodically. Turn the broiler on at the end if you want a crispier potato.
-Serve with optional marinade drizzle over top.
