Greek potatoes have so much going for them! I like to coat mine in a savory spice rub, before bathing the potatoes in an aromatic broth with lots of lemon and garlic. While roasting in the oven these lemony Greek potatoes soak up all those beautiful flavors, creating a side dish everyone will love!

Definitely a cut above the usual roasted potatoes! The unique thing about Greek Lemon Potatoes is that they are cooked in a heavily flavoured lemon garlic broth so they suck up all that flavour before roasting to golden perfection. They’re utterly addictive!
