Lemon Potatoes with Garlic and Oregano

I am pretty sure I found this recipe online somewhere, but I am not sure where.

  • 3 lbs Yukon gold or baking potatoes, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil or canola oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed or thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup beef or chicken stock (we used chicken)
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Spread potatoes in a single layer in 13×9 inch baking dish. Pour oil over them and add garlic, oregano, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Add the stock, toss, and bake 10 more minutes.
  4. Add the lemon juice, toss and bake 10-15 more minutes.

Lemon Garlic Potatoes

Verdict: Given the title of the recipe, I expected the garlic taste to be a lot more present in the dish. As it was, the lemon taste overpowered everything and, while I like lemon in some dishes, for me it just didn’t work here.
