George’s Favorite Greek Roasted Potatoes
With Lemon and Bay Leaves
This recipe from Helen Tsanos Sheinman’s “Love, Laughter, and Lunch” is her brother George’s favorite recipe for Greek roasted potatoes. Serving size is not given so I am going to guess this will feed approximately six to eight people. Unless they are Irish, in which case, it would feed four.
21/2 lbs. peeled and washed yellow potatoes
1 large onion, sliced
1/2 cup good olive oil
Juice of 2 lemons
6 to 8 bay leaves
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
Parboil the potatoes for five minutes, then quarter them. Spread into a large baking dish and toss with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, sliced onion, and bay leaves. Bake for approximately one hour. Serve with fish or chicken and salad.
