Roasted Greek Potatoes with Feta Cheese Tips

What are authentic Greek lemon potatoes?

Many Greek families have their own version of a lemony potato dish, and this recipe for Greek-style potatoes includes the more common components: olive oil, lemon, rosemary and oregano. Some recipes may use lamb stock or chicken stock instead of water. And of course, not every recipe tops the potatoes with feta cheese—but what's not to love about tangy feta?

How do you make potato wedges?

To make potato wedges, start by slicing your whole potatoes in half lengthwise. Then, cut each half into three or four wedges, depending on the size of your potatoes. No need to peel your potatoes for this recipe.

What should I serve these Greek potatoes with?

You can pair these roasted Greek potatoes with almost any delicious Greek main dish. We suggest these Chicken Gyros or a fantastic Mediterranean Rack of Lamb.
