Greek Roasted Potatoes

This side dish was recommended by Ada Graham, Moosilauke Ravine Lodge summer (2009) manager, to compliment the Chicken Italiano she recommended for Alex and Dan's Wedding Weekend Saturday night dinner. Although this recipe appears in Moosewood Cooks for a Crowd as "Greek Roasted Potatoes", it is known around MRL as "Potatoes I Love You!" because when MRL first served these potatoes one of the appreciative diners made this exclamation.

Serves 8ish depending on how much you love the potatoes.

Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

In shallow baking pan, toss

10 c raw potatoes, cubed

with

1/2 c lemon juice
2 T olive oil
1 T (or less) salt
1/2 t black pepper
1/2 t oregano, dried
2 cloves garlic [minced - I use more]

Add:

2 c hot water.

Bake uncovered at 475 degrees F for 1-1 1/2 hours stirring every 20 minutes. Add more water if needed to prevent sticking - try to let potatoes brown and liquid evaporate in the final few minutes.
