Greek Lemon Potatoes are a common side dish to many Greek dishes. These slowly roasted potatoes are lightly crispy on the outside, and tender and soft on the inside, with a delicious lemon flavor.

One of the platters I traditionally order at the Greek festivals is the lemon roasted chicken served with Greek lemon potatoes, braised green beans, and dolmades. The food is a big plate of warmth, comfort, and pure deliciousness!
Greek lemon potatoes are thick, moist potato wedges that are soft on the inside and a little crispy on the outside.
The lemon flavor makes the potatoes taste OUTRAGEOUS! Honestly, I make these for dinner parties all of the time because my guests go crazy over them.
I use Pomora Olive Oil for this recipe. Pomora Olive Oil is a high quality olive oil that seasons the potatoes beautifully.

How to make Greek Lemon Potatoes
This is an authentic Greek Lemon Potatoes Recipe. The roasted potatoes are super easy to make, they just take a bit of patience.

- Next, peel Russet potatoes and cut into large quarters.
- Pour mixture, along with additional spices listed below in the recipe card, over the potatoes.

Be patient. The wait is worth it.
What are the Best Potatoes to Use?
In this recipe, you will want to use russet potatoes because of their ability to absorb liquid so well. The russet potatoes will absorb the wonderful lemon flavors creating a rich, tasty side dish.
How long can you keep leftover potatoes in the refrigerator?
You can store leftover potatoes in an airtight container in your refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.
