Tired of the usual side dishes? Try the Greek baked potatoes, a true concentrate of Mediterranean flavors and aromas.
We know what you are thinking but no, Greek potatoes are not just baked potatoes. They hide a secret that we will reveal to you shortly and that allows you to enhance all the flavors of this apparently so simple side dish. Yes, because baked potatoes are a wildcard that goes with anything, but these we guarantee that if possible they are even better.
To make this recipe with potatoes so sensational is the addition of aromatic herbs , first of all dill, already the protagonist of another symbolic dish of Greek cuisine, the tzatziki sauce, but also chopped oregano and rosemary. Adding garlic powder, chilli and paprika will do the rest. And the secret? Adding lemon juice when cooked. Brilliant right?
How to prepare the Greek potato recipe
- If you use organic potatoes you can also keep the peel otherwise we advise you to remove it. Then wash them under running water and cut them into wedges.
- As they are ready, put them in a bowl.
- Season them with the oil and add all the spices and aromas: dried dill, rosemary and oregano , garlic, chilli and paprika powder, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper . Mix well to distribute all the aromas.
- Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 200 ° C for 45-50 minutes or until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
- Serve them sprinkled with lemon juice and your Greek baked potato side dish is ready to serve.
Greek potatoes can be kept in the refrigerator for a couple of days, however, even if reheated (better in the oven or in a pan) they will no longer be as crunchy as they originally were.
