Greek Lemon Herb Roasted Potatoes

lemon herb roasted potatoes with lemon olive oilThis dish is effortless and full of flavor. I would be surprised if it didn't make it in to your weekly rotation. While photographing the potatoes, I had to stop myself from nearly eating the whole pan. The fresh lemony herbaceous aroma entices you before you even take a bite. It's the perfect side for almost any entree, and it's really great to have on hand. In the morning, you could add eggs for a quick breakfast. For lunch, have them over greens like a Nicoise Salad, and for dinner you could bake it with chicken all on one sheet pan for easy cleanup.

Any potatoes will do, but yukon gold have a creamy texture that is perfect for this dish. When cooking for the blog, I used a mix of yukon gold, baby red, and Vitolotte purple potatoes that were on sale. Aren't the colors spectacular?

Lastly, a drizzle of Lemon Olive Oil adds to the creaminess of the potatoes and makes the herb flavors pop.
