Greek Roasted Potatoes
There’s something you should know. I have a slight obsession with feta cheese. I put it on just about anything. I even like to eat it plain, straight out of the container. This was my first time making these potatoes and they did not disappoint.
Before I get to the recipe, I wanted to give you a little peak at what goes on in my house when I’m cooking.
The days of M quietly playing while I cook are gone, finito, kaput. Chaos is the best word to describe the scene. She grabs up on the counter tops…
Runs around the house, sings, cries, screams, and begs for whatever food I’m chopping.
If I’m chopping onions, she begs for it, so I give it her. She spits it out.
If I’m chopping garlic, she begs for it, so I give it to her. She spits it out.
If I’m slicing lemons, she begs for it, so I give it her. She spits it out.
At least I’m exposing her to different flavors, right?! 😉
This recipe was inspired by the cookbook Kitchen Playdates. I received it as a gift and have been slowly working my way through all the recipes. Here’s how to make roasted greek potatoes.
* Cut about 8-10 small to medium size red potatoes into wedges. Throw potatoes into a large bowl.
*Finely chop 1/4 cup red onions. Add them to potatoes.
*Finely chop 2 cloves of garlic and juice two lemons. Throw garlic and lemon juice into the potato bowl.
*Next you want to sprinkle 2 teaspoons of oregano over potato mixture and drizzle in about 1/3 cup olive oil. Mix well.
*Pour potato mixture onto a large sheet pan. Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to make sure potatoes are coated.
*Pull the potatoes out of the oven, sprinkle with 1/2 cup feta cheese, and pop it back in the oven for about 6 minutes, or until feta starts to slightly brown.
