Share it:

These potatoes are a staple in our home. Whether accompanying roast lamb or chicken, or just on their own, we have them a couple of times a week. They are delicious and the ones that get overly-brown in the pan and stick a bit are MINE! Clean up is a little tricky with this recipe, unless you line your pans with foil, but I find that just filling the pan up with hot, sudsy water and forgetting for an hour (something I apparently have no problem doing ) helps a lot.

"I admit I was dubious about this recipe but now I'm converted! They were delicious! Had them for a BBQ with friends (cooked on the BBQ) and everyone raved and wanted the recipe. My husband is Greek and thinks the are some of the best potatoes he has had! I won't tell the mother in law that!"

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
8 large potatoes; peeled, cut into large wedges (about 6-7 wedges per potato)
4 cloves garlic; minced (more garlic is a good thing, less garlic is a no-no for
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup Water
1 tablespoon oregano; (get the Mediterranean, it's the best!)
1 lemon, juice of; (up to 1/2)
sea salt
fresh; coarse ground black pepper

Original recipe makes 8

Preparation

1Preheat oven to 440F A reviewer has suggested spraying the baking pan with Pam - that sounds like a great idea!

2Put all the ingredients into a baking pan large enough to hold them.

3Season generously with sea salt and black pepper.

4Make sure your hands are very clean and put them in the pan and give everything a toss to distribute.

5The garlic will drop into the water/oil solution but its flavour will permeate the potatoes, and this way, it won't burn.

6Bake for 40 minutes.

7When a nice golden-brown crust has formed on the potatoes, give them a stir to bring the white underside up, season lightly with a bit more sea salt and pepper and just a light sprinkling of oregano.

8Add 1/2 cup more water if pan appears to be getting dry, and pop back into oven to brown other side of potatoes.

9This will take about another 40 minutes.

10Do not be afraid of overcooking the potatoes- they will be delicious.

11Note: I often melt a bouillon cube in the water; if you do, make sure to cut back some on the salt.
