These potatoes have a nice Mediterranean flair to them, with the lemon, garlic, and herbs. These are so delicious out of the oven topped with plenty of feta cheese.

  • 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.

Very good recipe Cyndi! I scaled it down quite a bit but I wish I wouldn't have with the mint. My family discovered they liked feta so thanks for that too! I would recommend cooking this in foil that has been sprayed because it burned a little in my pan. I think next time I'll cut the potatoes in rounders rather than wedges and I'll add the feta for the last minute or so of cooking time. Read More

WOWZA! Cindy these were completely fabulous in every sense of the word. Here is what I did different. I precooked the potatoes in the micro to give them a head start We are under another heat advisory again and I was using the grill outside no 400 degree oven for me tonight. I did cut back on the water since they were partially cooked but followed everything else to the T. I did have a few fresh picked green beans that needed to be used so I added that to the potatoes in my grill pan. Really wonderful and yes I will make them again! Read More

Cyndi, this recipe gives potatoes a great flavor. Will be making these often. I did not have 80 min. to bake them so I microwaved them for 10 min on high, covered, then put them in the oven(uncovered) for 35 min until the potatoes were tender and browned. I did not have fresh mint but it tasted fantastic without it. Thanks Cyndi, great recipe Read More

5 stars from each and every one of us! I made this as written except that I cut the potatoes smaller substituted chicken broth for the water and marinaded the potatoes to include the herbs. These were done in about an hour at 410. Delicious and a big hit with the whole family. I served with my "Mediterranean" style turkey meatloaf and it made for the perfect dinner! Thank you Cyndi for sharing an outstanding side dish! Read More

Oooh. SOOOO yummy!!! Made these to accompany the marinated Greek chicken kabobs (katplusgoll) I made for dinner tonight. I was thinking of taking the easy route and just opening a pouch of Uncle Ben's rice pilaf to serve on the side, but I am SOOO glad I didn't. :) I pretty much followed Cat Lady's directions to the letter except for a few minor changes. First, I halved everything since this was a side dish for two people. Second, I used the full amount of herbs called for (we like herbs!). And finally, I subbed chicken broth for water and used more of it (my potatoes seemed dry half way thru the first 40 minutes, so I added a 1/2 c. more at that point and another 1/2 c. when I added my herbs). Oh, and I also used herbed instead of plain feta (yummy!). THREE TIPS: a) if you want to prep ahead of time, simply cut your potatoes and add to a large pot of water; then add a bit of lemon juice to prevent browning, b) if you rinse / drain your potatoes and then dry (with a kitchen towel) REALLY well, you'll end up with perfectly crisp potatoes (this process removes excess starch which prevents potatoes from crisping up) and c) spread your potatoes on a WELL-GREASED, wide rimmed baking sheet and roast on the top rack of your oven (you'll also find that this helps crisp everything up, again, if you like your potatoes slightly crisp...). Thanks for sharing, Cyndi! This one's going in my "keeper" file for sure. :-) Read More

HOLY SMOKES! these potatoes are fabulous -- perhaps the best i have ever made. i put these in a cast iron skillet on the grill, covered with foil, and let them bake for 40 minutes. the feta adds such a nice subtle flavor to these. this will be my go to potato recipe from now on. thanks so much cyndi.

Excellent! This had all the flavor of my favorite souvlaki but on potatoes! My only caveat and it is small is that there was too much oil. I had to drain some off to get a crispiness. No biggie I probably had them in a smaller pan than what is required. The cooking time was perfect for me (the water keeps them from burning). I added my oregano at the specified time but left my mint until just before serving. I wanted it to look really bright and fresh. Thanks for a great recipe! I'm already planning to make it again.

These are good. I made half the recipe to feed 4 and should have made all 10 servings. I did increase the mint to 1 tablespoon because we do like mint and a teaspoon just seemed puny. This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing. Read More

WOW! These potatoes are amazing! The only change I made was I didn't add any water. They came out slightly more crunchy which is fine by us! I will definitely be making these again. Thank you Cat Lady Cyndi. MMmmmmm Read More
