  • 1 1/2 lbs yukon or russet potatoes
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice from 2 lemons
  • 2 tsp Greek oregano
  • 4 large garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper


  • Peel potatoes and measure all ingredients for marinade. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Cut each potato into eighths and try to keep the potato pieces as uniformly cut as possible so that they cook evenly.
  • In a bowl, use a whisk to combine, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of Greek oregano, 4 large garlic cloves, finely minced, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.
  • Spread the cut up potatoes out evenly in a baking dish and pour the marinade over the potatoes to coat them well.
  • Cover potatoes with aluminum foil and seal edges tightly. Place in preheated oven for 50 minutes.
  • After, 50 minutes, remove the aluminum foil, baste the potatoes and cook for an additional 30 minutes. For the final 5-7 minutes, baste once more and turn the broiler on so that the potatoes get crispy on top.
  • Serve immediately.
