Roasted Potatoes (Greek style)

Roasted potatoes with oregano and lemon juice… not your usual potatoes!

Ingredients (for 2)

  • 4 small potatoes
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C)
  • Peel the potatoes, wash them and remove any black dots; drain on paper towels
  • Cut the potatoes into bite-size chunks or wedges and put them in a large bowl
  • Sprinkle with salt, black pepper, oregano and drizzle with olive oil; toss well so that potatoes are well coated with oil
  • Place them in a glass baking dish or roasting pan and spread evenly to form one layer
  • Place in oven and roast for 45 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring from time to time
  • Add lemon juice 5 minutes before removing from oven

Best Served With

Any meat or fish course

Tips from the Chef

  • It is important to coat potatoes evenly with the olive oil or some of them will stick to the pan
  • Preferably use baking potatoes
