Gather your ingredients

To make these Greek-Style Roasted Potatoes, you can start by gathering your ingredients. For this recipe, you will need baby potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, dried oregano, garlic powder, and lemon juice.

Add all ingredients to a large bowl

Be sure to preheat your oven to 400 F. Then you can begin by adding the chopped potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, dried oregano, garlic powder, and lemon juice to a large bowl. Carli notes, "I focused on highlighting Greek flavors like lemon, oregano, and garlic to really pump up the flavor of these potatoes."

Stir the ingredients to ensure the potatoes are coated

Then, using a large wooden spoon, stir the potatoes well. Making sure to stir these potatoes well ensures that all the seasonings are evenly-coated on the potatoes.

Pour potatoes on a large baking sheet and bake

Lastly, pour the potatoes out onto a large baking sheet. Be sure to spread them out in an even layer. This will increase the surface area of the potatoes exposed in the oven, helping to ensure even crispiness. Carli explains, "The best part about roasted potatoes are the crispy bits, so I make sure to maximize the crisp as much as possible." Bake for about 40 to 50 minutes and allow to cool before serving as a side dish in your meal.
