Ingredients

  • Yukon gold potatoes scrubbed and cut into wedges
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Dry Greek oregano
  • Sea salt
  • Chicken or veggie stock
  • Lemons 
  • Fresh oregano leaves (optional)

I like Yukon gold potatoes because they are buttery and have thin skin that I leave on. I just scrub the potatoes really well and cut them into wedges. You can also use baby gold potatoes, cut them in half, and adjust cooking time as needed.

A large baking pan with raw potatoes.

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Place the potatoes in a large enough baking dish so they dont overlap much. Pour the olive oil all over. Add the garlic, oregano, sea salt and a generous amount of freshly ground pepper. Mix potatoes with olive oil and seasonings well. 

Bake potatoes for 15 min.

Add the stock and bake for another 15 minutes. 

Add the lemon juice and bake for 35 minutes or until potatoes are cooked and have nice golden brown edges.

Place potatoes on a platter, pour the delicious lemon & garlic olive oil liquid all over them, sprinkle some fresh oregano on top (optional) and serve immediately.

    I had the most amazing lemon and garlic potatoes when I visited Poros, Greece and I’m hoping these are the same ones! I can’t wait to make these for dinner tomorrow!

  6. 5 stars
    This is the best side dish! These potatoes are so hearty, delicious and easy to make. Tender on the inside and perfectly roasted on the outside with plenty of Greek flavor. Thank you!

  8. 5 stars
    I don’t think there is a better, tastier, side dish than roasted potatoes and these lemon potatoes with garlic and oregano are just perfectly soft inside and crispy on the outside. Utterly delicious!

  9. 5 stars
    These are really tasty. But can’t help but mention that the cook time of 45 minutes at the top of the recipe doesn’t match the instructions–15 with oil, 15 with broth and 35 with lemon is an extra 20 minutes. It’s worth every one of them!
