Greek-Style Potatoes


These Greek potatoes are a simple recipe and the closest I can get to the real thing. The best is that the flavorings can be adjusted to your taste as you bake it — I sometimes add a little more lemon. These delicious potatoes are moist and great with green beans and baked chicken with some salsa and feta.
