    These Greek potatoes have a lovely Mediterranean flavour to them! Lots of olive oil, lemon, garlic and herbs. These are so delicious straight out of the oven topped with plenty of feta cheese.

    1. Preheat an oven to 230 C / Gas 8. Lightly oil a large baking dish.

    Very good recipe, Cyndi! I scaled it down quite a bit, but I wish I wouldn't have with the mint. My family discovered they liked feta, so thanks for that, too! I would recommend cooking this in foil that has been sprayed because it burned a little in my pan. I think next time I'll cut the potatoes in rounders rather than wedges, and I'll add the feta for the last minute or so of cooking time.  -  28 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    WOWZA! Cindy these were completely fabulous in every sense of the word. Here is what I did different. I precooked the potatoes in the micro to give them a head start, We are under another heat advisory again and I was using the grill outside, no 400 degree oven for me tonight. I did cut back on the water since they were partially cooked, but followed everything else to the T. I did have a few fresh picked green beans that needed to be used so I added that to the potatoes in my grill pan. Really wonderful and yes I will make them again!  -  17 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Cyndi, this recipe gives potatoes a great flavor. Will be making these often. I did not have 80 min. to bake them so I microwaved them for 10 min on high, covered, then put them in the oven(uncovered) for 35 min until the potatoes were tender and browned. I did not have fresh mint but it tasted fantastic without it. Thanks Cyndi, great recipe  -  21 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
