One of my favourite side dishes is roasted potatoes. I cut them into small diced cubes and roast them until the outside is crispy but the middle is light and fluffy.

Over the years I have coated the roasted hash brown potatoes with different types of seasoning. Olive oil, lemon and oregano coat these Greek roasted potatoes flavour similar to the potatoes you can get at a Greek restaurant.

How to roast diced potatoes

  1. Since these potatoes are roasted with the skin on, it is important to wash and scrub them very well to get all the grit off. Cut them into chunks that are about 1/2 inch in size.
  2. Toss the diced potatoes in the oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and oregano. Make sure that the chunks are all well coated. Spread them evenly, in one layer, on a baking sheet. 
  3. Bake them in a 400F oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Flip them halfway through the baking time.

  • I just made these, so easy and delicious!

    Lemon juice will burn your pan, so roast on foil or parchment paper.
