When well prepared, Greek-style garlic and lemon potatoes are crusty, nicely browned, and accented by a full (but not overpowering) lemon flavor and plenty of garlic bite. To arrive at our best recipe for Greek-style garlic and lemon potatoes, we chose Yukon Golds and browned them in a nonstick skillet in butter and vegetable oil for great flavor and golden color, before covering the pan to allow the potatoes to fully cook. We added lemon juice and zest, four cloves of garlic, and a sprinkling of salt and fresh oregano to finish our Greek-style potato recipe.

Serves 4

If your potatoes are larger than the size we recommend, you may have to increase the covered cooking time by up to 4 minutes. Though a nonstick pan makes cleanup easier, it is not essential. In keeping with the bold flavors of the dish, this variation is very spicy.
