Greek Style Potatoes

These Greek style potatoes are soft and creamy on the inside and lightly crispy and caramelized on the outside. They’re also full of rich, lemony flavour too. You can not get better Greek style potatoes than that!

One of my favourite things to eat is roasted potatoes of any variety. They may not be quickest to cook, but they’re simple & just go with just about anything. I had roasted potatoes in a Greek restaurant a few months back & they blew our minds. This is my take on Greek roasted potatoes. My twist is using semolina sprinkled over the potatoes as it gives them a fantastic crunch factor.

Two tips with this dish, you can either peel the potatoes or not. On this occasion I didn’t peel them. Call it Chefs discretion. Lastly with the marinade, it may look like a lot of liquid, but just remember that the potatoes will soak some of it up & the rest will evaporate and infuse with everything. They are a perfect addition to my Greek style chicken too. Enjoy!
