Roasted Greek Potatoes with Feta Cheese

Lemony Greek potatoes are a traditional side dish for grilled chicken or steak. When they come out of the oven, we top with feta for a little melty goodness. —Arge Salvatori, Little Ferry, New Jersey

Roasted Greek Potatoes with Feta Cheese Tips

What are authentic Greek lemon potatoes?

Many Greek families have their own version of a lemony potato dish, and this recipe for Greek-style potatoes includes the more common components: olive oil, lemon, rosemary and oregano. Some recipes may use lamb stock or chicken stock instead of water. And of course, not every recipe tops the potatoes with feta cheese—but what's not to love about tangy feta?

How do you make potato wedges?

To make potato wedges, start by slicing your whole potatoes in half lengthwise. Then, cut each half into three or four wedges, depending on the size of your potatoes. No need to peel your potatoes for this recipe.

What should I serve these Greek potatoes with?

You can pair these roasted Greek potatoes with almost any delicious Greek main dish. We suggest these Chicken Gyros or a fantastic Mediterranean Rack of Lamb.

    Second time making this. Perfectly pairs with roasted lamb. We loved the great combo of flavors...tangy lemon, creamy, salty feta, and delicious garlic, oregano, and pepper! Instead of cutting the potatoes in wedges, I sliced them into rounds.

    This is a great side dish and soooo easy. Make it about once a week. It's a keeper in this house!

    I found these potatoes to be tender and moist, but did need more browning! I'd used 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, crushed, 4 to 8 garlic cloves, crushed, and used Russet potatoes! I'd baked 40 minutes TO 60 minutes until potatoes were tender. I just may have to use a roasting pan for this recipe! delowenstein

    If you like feta, you will love this dish. The potatoes by themselves are good, but the cheese really flavors the recipe.

    These potatoes didn't have enough lemon flavor for us. The Feta helps but without it just roast potatoes good but not special.
