A Taste of Greece: Rustic Greek Potatoes Recipe


A Taste of Greece: Rustic Greek Potatoes Recipe

There’s something about Greek cuisine that instantly transports you to the sunny Mediterranean. Today, I’m excited to share a recipe that’s close to my heart and perfect for any family dinner or gathering - Rustic Greek Potatoes.


  • 4 Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered lengthwise
  • Olive oil, for that authentic Greek flavor
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 lemons, for a citrusy zing
  • 2 tablespoons mint leaves, freshly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons oregano, to bring in the Mediterranean aromas


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (about 200°C) - a crucial step for getting that perfect roast.
  2. Take a 2-quart casserole dish and generously sprinkle olive oil on the bottom to prevent sticking.
  3. Layer the potatoes in the dish. This not only ensures even cooking but also lets each potato soak up the flavors.
  4. Drizzle more olive oil over the potatoes. Don’t be shy; it’s the secret to that golden, crispy exterior.
  5. Sprinkle the seasonings evenly over the potatoes. Salt, pepper, mint, and oregano will work their magic here.
  6. Squeeze the lemon juice over the potatoes, ensuring each piece gets a taste of that fresh lemony goodness.
  7. Place the lemon halves on top of the potatoes. As they bake, they’ll infuse a subtle, tangy flavor.
  8. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. This creates a steamy environment for the potatoes to become tender.
  9. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes. This is when the potatoes get that irresistible crispy edge.


This dish serves 4 people, making it perfect for a family meal. Serve these Greek Potatoes with a side of grilled fish or meat, and you’ve got a meal that’s both comforting and exotic.


These Rustic Greek Potatoes are more than just a side dish; they’re a journey to Greece on a plate. The combination of fresh herbs, zesty lemon, and robust olive oil will make this recipe a staple in your kitchen. So go ahead, give it a try and let the flavors of Greece brighten up your meal!
