Wow, looking through the recipes I've posted here on Silver Boxes, it's been a long while since I've posted anything other than a dessert or some kind of sweet!
We do eat foods other than sweets. I promise.
Now that the days are longer I'm starting to have better light around supper time to take better photos.
So I've been doing just that - taking photos of our favourite meals.
Yay for variety!
One of our very, very favourite side dishes are these lemon roasted potatoes.
With garlic & oregano, they're a perfect side dish to souvlaki & Greek salad!
You can even do them on the BBQ if you want! (Just see my notes at the end of the recipe.)
Lemon Roasted Potatoes Print recipe
4 lbs. potatoes (8-10)
1 cup water
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 cup lemon juice (or 1/3 cup if you don't like a strong lemon flavour)
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 325º.
Cut potatoes into wedges. Place in 13x9" baking dish. Whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour over potatoes. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 2 hours, basting often, until most of the liquid is evaporated.
**Notes: If you're in more of a hurry, you can still make this. Reduce water to 1/2 cup, heat oven to 350º, & bake for an hour. Still super yummy!
To make on the BBQ: Make sure you use 1 cup water - no less. Use a disposable aluminum baking dish, cover with aluminum foil & BBQ on medium heat for 30 minutes. Baste often.**
Have you been barbecuing already this Spring? We sill have snow on the ground here in Saskatoon, but I have promised myself that I'm barbecuing this week anyway!
