Greek Style Potatoes

Greek Style Potatoes


"Greek Style Potatoes is a simple recipe, and the closest I can get to the real thing. The best is that it can be adjusted to your taste as you bake it. I sometimes add a little more lemon. The potatoes are moist, and great with green beans and baked chicken with a little salsa and feta on top."

After reading previous reviews I came up with a recipe that worked perfectly for me. I agreed with the lady that said there was no way she was going to cook potatoes for 2.5 hours! I have re...

The first time I made this recipe I followed the directions as stated.However, I used golden potatoes. The 2nd time I used the juice of one lemon, 3 bouillions. I was out of thyme so I used a ts...

Great potatoes; however, I made changes based on other reviews. I only used half of the oil, half of the water, double the fresh lemon juice, used 3 cubes of vegetable bouillon, and used 4 garl...

WOW, all I can say is these are far better than any greek restaurant's lemon roasted potatoes. I cut back the water by half and two hours was perfect, and I tossed them three times during the c...

Okay, I know I am in the minority, but we didn't like these. The had an odd taste that just didn't seem to match. I suspect it was the lemon. I will not make them again.

These are some mighty fine tastin' taters. I halved the recipe and used barely a Tbs olive oil, reduced the water by a 1/4C and subbed veggie bouillon cubes for the chicken-flavored. Only mino...

I loved this. I tweaked the recipe a little bit - adding three vegetarian boullion cubes instead of two chicken ones, and I used some vegetarian stock in place of some of the water (which I had...
