Roasted Greek Lemon Potatoes


45 minutes is all you need to make these Roasted Greek Lemon Potatoes. Crispy, lemony oven-roasted potatoes are perfect when scooped up with homemade tzatziki sauce that’s so delicious it will quickly become a family favorite. And you can whip it up while the potatoes roast. So good.

Any variety of potato works well in this recipe, but I prefer starchy potatoes, such as Russets or baking potatoes. Russets get the crispiest skin and roast up deliciously golden brown. These roasted potatoes make a wonderful meal with Greek roast chicken and a salad of chopped bell pepper, English cucumber, cherry tomatoes, red onion, Kalamata olives, and feta cheese, dressed with flavorful homemade Greek salad dressing.

Steps to make Roasted Greek Lemon Potatoes


Preheat oven

Preheat the oven to 425 °F.


Prepare potatoes


On a large sheet pan, toss the potato wedges with ¼ cup olive oil, 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice, ½ teaspoon lemon zest, 4 unpeeled garlic cloves, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and black pepper to taste. Use your hands to mix the potatoes. Make sure they are all coated well with the oil, lemon juice, and spices.




Roast for 35-40 minutes or until golden and tender, turning once halfway through cooking.


Make tzatziki


Once the garlic is roasted, remove it from the baking sheet and squeeze out of the peel. In a bowl, combine 2 cups plain Greek yogurt, grated cucumber, squeezed roasted garlic, 1 minced garlic clove, 1 tablespoon minced dill, and 3 tablespoons lemon juice. Season with salt to taste.



Serve the roasted potatoes with the tzatziki sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
