Greek Potatoes (Oven-Roasted and Delicious!)
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 1 hrs 20 mins
|4||large potatoes, peeled, cut into large wedges (about 6-7 wedges per potato)|
|2||garlic cloves, minced (more garlic is a good thing, less garlic is a no-no for this recipe)|
|1/4 cup||olive oil|
|1/2 tablespoon||dried oregano (get the mediterranean, it's the best!)|
|fresh coarse ground black pepper|
1 Preheat oven to 375°F Spray large baking pan with Pam.
2 Put all the ingredients into a large bowl.
3 Season generously with sea salt and black pepper.
4 Make sure your hands are very clean and toss to distribute.
5 The garlic will drop into the water/oil solution but its flavour will permeate the potatoes, and this way, it won't burn.
6 Bake for 40 minutes.
7 When a nice golden-brown crust has formed on the potatoes, give them a stir to bring the white underside up, season lightly with a bit more sea salt and pepper and just a light sprinkling of oregano.
8 Add 1/2 cup more water if pan appears to be getting dry, and pop back into oven to brown other side of potatoes.
9 This will take about another 40 minutes.
10 Do not be afraid of overcooking the potatoes- they will be delicious.
11 Note: I often melt a bouillon cube in the water; if you do, make sure to cut back some on the salt.
