This recipe is not a fast recipe: it takes some time to bake the potatoes to crispy perfection. But the time invest is totally worth everything in my book.

And still, the steps themselves are super easy. 

In general, Mediterranean food is among my favorites, like with this Mujadara, the Italian Pasta Salad or my homemade Spaghetti Sauce.

Why these are the best Greek Lemon Potatoes

For me this is truly the best method to make Greek potatoes and I tested it back and forth.

I also find one ingredient which makes everything more delicious and that is poultry seasoning (which is still totally vegan).

Ingredients are pantry staples that you definitely have on hand and give you a result that is so amazing.

I’ll show you step by step by pictures so you know you can get perfect texture and flavor whenever you want it.

Next make the broth in a bowl. Combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, poultry seasoning, vegetable broth, and oregano.

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and mix everything with a wire whisk.

Now add potatoes to a baking dish and pour the liquid broth mixture over them. 

Mix well so that the potatoes are all coated. Bake for around 40 minutes.

Take the dish from the oven and flip the potatoes around. Bake for another 40 minutes, then serve on plates with fresh parsley on top. Enjoy.

Tips and tricks

I usually say that leftovers of my recipes can be stored, but with these baked potatoes I don’t recommend it at all. Same for freezing. These Greek Lemon Potatoes are most enjoyable fresh.

Use quality ingredients: fresh lemons, good olive oil, vegetable broth and great potatoes for baking like russets. 

Use fresh oregano instead of parsley, if you like.

Hi, I love these potatoes - delicious and easy. I am going away and was wondering if I could make them the day before and reheat when we get to our rental place?? Thanks, Jessica

Would there be a good substitute for poultry seasoning?

Hi Chelsey! Yes, you can but the result will be different. Try a mix from dried sage, parsley, rosemary and thyme. Good luck and let me know how it works. I'm excited to hear about your experience.
