How to prepare the Greek potato recipe

  1. If you use organic potatoes you can also keep the peel otherwise we recommend removing it. Then wash them under running water and cut them into segments.
  2. As they are ready, combine them in a bowl.
  3. Season them with oil and add all the spices and flavourings: dried dill, rosemary and oregano , garlic, chilli pepper and paprika powder, a pinch of salt and pepper . Mix well to distribute all the aromas.
  4. Spread the potatoes on a baking tray lined with baking paper and cook at 200°C for 45-50 minutes or until they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
  5. Serve them by sprinkling them with lemon juice and your side dish of baked Greek potatoes is ready to be served.

Accompany them with the classic tzatziki sauce or try your hand at some other Greek recipes such as the delicious moussaka .


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 were originally.
