There is restaurant in Green Bay that makes something called Greek Fries. It is french fries with malt vinegar, oregano, salt, pepper and feta. It is amazing. They are probably one of my favorite comfort foods, but not close to our house at all (probably a good thing). I decided to make a version at home for us without having to make a trip to the restaurant. We served this with Grilled Citrus Basil Chicken
and it was amazing.
I loved the flavors of the herbs alongside the lemon and tangy feta. These potatoes hit the spot perfectly for our favorite fries- without the driving and cost.
We have everything set and currently counting down the time. Kellen is going to Ron's parents for an overnight before we leave so his Grandparents can see him before we leave. Ron and I are going to grab dinner and see Godzilla (I am excited about this!). I have a *giant* soft spot in the heart for science fiction movies...they are my guilty pleasure.
2 lbs red potatoes, quartered
Juice of 1 fresh lemon
1 Tbl dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 Tbl olive oil
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Place potatoes into a large bowl. Toss with lemon juice, oregano, salt, pepper and olive oil until evenly coated.
Arrange potatoes on the baking sheet and place in the oven (Discard excess liquid in the bowl because you just need to coat the potatoes). Roast for 40-50 minutes. You will want to check to make sure potatoes are tender and have browned.
Remove potatoes from oven and transfer to a serving dish. Top with feta and enjoy.
