Going Back for Seconds

If you can only have one serving of these potatoes, you are superhuman.

Herbed Greek Roasted Potatoes with Feta Cheese


5 pounds potatoes, cut into wedges
6 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup olive oil
1 cup water
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Sea salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint
1 (8 ounce) package crumbed feta cheese


Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly oil a large baking dish.

Stir the potatoes, garlic, olive oil, water, lemon juice, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until the potatoes are evenly coated; pour into the prepared baking dish.

Roast in the preheated oven until the potatoes begin to brown, about 40 minutes. Season the potatoes with the oregano and mint. If the dish appears dry, pour another 1/2 cup water into the dish. Return to the oven and bake about 40 minutes more. Top with the crumbled feta cheese to serve.

Notes: Holy cow, these were so delicious. Good, good stuff.

  1. This is a go to recipe. Seriously good. I think the potatoes worked out because the water helps cook them. Sometimes oven cooked potatoes are too crunchy on the outside or too raw. Perfect. And the flavors of the feta, mint, oregano. Just exquisitely Mediterranean. So good.
