Lemony Greek Roasted Potatoes

When someone says Greek potatoes, they might mean those garlicky mashed potatoes also known as Skordalia or they might be talking about Greek lemon potatoes, which are the roasted kind.

This recipe is my adaptation of Greek roasted potatoes. Potatoes are cubed for maximum flavour distribution, which comes from a mix of herbs and spices, olive oil, salt and lemon. I throw in some red peppers as they add a lovely touch of sweetness when roasted, creating a nice contrast to the salty feta. The whole lot are roasted on a flat baking sheet so you get perfectly crispy potatoes that are packed with flavour.

This dish can be served as a side, main or for breakfast/brunch, it’s vegetarian and gluten-free.

Ingredients for Greek Potatoes

Here are the ingredients you need for these sheet pan feta potatoes. Find full measurements in the recipe below.

  • Potatoes – I use what we call brushed potatoes, also known as Sebago, but you can use any type suitable for roasting. You will need about 1kg of unpeeled potatoes.
  • Red pepper – aka capsicum, aka bell pepper for sweetness but can be omitted
  • Spices – garlic and onion powder, paprika, dried oregano, cinnamon, pepper and salt.
  • Feta – I love smooth mild feta as it’s a little less overwhelming but any good Greek feta will work here.
  • You will also need olive oil, lemon and a little parsley or basil.

    Yum! Made these tonight and had a friend for dinner. She said every bite is just as good as the first. I also added some chopped kalamata olives at the end.
