When I was raiding my pantry one weekend with the intent on making something delicious but easy, I found a bag of baby Dutch yellow potatoes and figured I’d concoct a new recipe with these. I wanted to meal prep for the rest of my workweek and these would go perfectly with some steaks on the grill or even some chicken and veggies.
I’ve been fascinated with the lemon potatoes I always order at Greek restaurants so but, when I tried making them a few months ago, they came out too citrusy and just didn’t come out the way I had hoped. So, I decided to roast these bad boys but also give them a depth of flavor with lemon. That way, I’d have roasted potatoes with a twist of Greek lemon potatoes… the best of the best!
