This Greek dish is rich with olive oil and bright with lemon, and the potatoes are simultaneously crispy and creamy. Serve them with burgers for a change from the usual baked potatoes or fries.

Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Total time: 1 hour
Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

    2 pounds russet or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    1 tablespoon kosher salt (or half as much table salt)
    freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 500.
  2. Place the potatoes in a baking dish in which they just fit in a single layer (line it with parchment for easier clean-up) and add the remaining ingredients.
  3. Toss to coat evenly, then bake uncovered for 50 minutes to an hour, until the potatoes are browned and easily pierced with a fork (add another quarter cup of water if they're not done by the time the liquid evaporates). Serve.

double delicious grilled chicken

I used these as part of a special Father's Day dinner with steak and shrimp and salad, and they were perfect. Everyone loved them. They'd go with anything -- meat, chicken, seafood ... even just as a snack. We had four adults and two kids and everyone inhaled them. Not a potato crumb was left!

It's not a complicated recipe at all, but cutting the potatoes is definitely an adult job. My kids love peeling vegetables so they did that and were happy. It's not the best recipe for kids but they can do a few little tasks.

Go out and make these yourself ... and make sure you roast them enough until they are nice and crispy and brown, but not burned.
