How could you resists Greek style lemon potatoes? It is a must have at any Greek restaurant and if you love them as much as I do they are worth the carb count.
This recipe is a step by step, but really easy to follow and the results are worth the time an effort. There is little prep required and together with the Greek ribs and salad it makes a fantastic meal to serve to family and friends.
It all comes together no matter the location. Whether you are dining in doors, alfresco or on the front porch like we like to do.
Simple ingredients combined together to make a refreshing side dish that can hold it’s own as a stellar star of the meal.
Potatoes can be a bit predictable and boring, but with zest of the lemon, the freshness of the oregano and the fragrant Parmesan cheese you really can really elevate it to another level. No longer the filler side dish, these potatoes command your attention.
Truth has been told in the cleaned plate of our daughter who for some reason is not a really potato fan (french fries excluded).
They are baked to perfection with a crisp outside and tender break apart interior. The lemon flavour is absorbed within and is present in every bite. It is made all in a single dish that makes clean up a breeze for those busy days or those days where you really don’t want to go a lot of dishes.
Happy dining! Opa!
