Greek Potatoes

We had a vegetarian feast last weekend
to celebrate our friends new born girly
I didn't have my camera
but the food was
I had my friend send me
her recipe for the Greek Potatoes
they are so so good

Here is her original vegetarian version
keep reading to see my changes
for a non vegetarian version

8 large potatoes, peeled, cut into large wedges
4-8 cloves garlic, minced - the more the better
1/2 cup olive oil
2 1/2 cups water
1 tbsp oregano
1/3 cup lemon juice
sea salt
fresh coarse ground black pepper
4-6 tbsp vegetarian 'chicken' seasoning
-if using real chicken broth then substitute it for some of the water

I used a lot of garlic

here is the garlic
grape seed oil
lemon juice
and oregano
chopped potatoes
salt and pepper
I used a can of chicken broth
and enough water
to equal 2 1/2 cups of liquid

mixed together
into the pan
and into the oven
at 400 for 40ish minutes
then stir to brown the underside
if more water is needed
add a small amount
cook an additional 20 minutes

these are amazing
and so easy
I served with some
BBQ Souvlaki Chicken
and a salad

go forth
eat Greek
potatoes that is


  1. Mmm those look great. I am going to try them! I wonder if they could be cooked on the BBQ?...

  2. I think if you use a high heat and cut the liquid a little, it might work. Give it a try and let me know! I would leave the BBQ closed as much as you the meat might be hard to cook also...not sure
