Mebbe “Greek Diner” Style Potatoes is a better title, because this recipe is how all the potatoes in all the Greek Diners should be.
In my not-so-humble opinion.
I mean, who would not be happy to see these potatoes, crispity on the outside and kinda creamy soft inside on their plate?
Pretty simple to toss together, too, though I have changed the seasonings from the original recipe to suit our tastes.
•1 (24 oz) bag small yellow potatoes
•1/4 cup water
•1/4 cup lemon juice
•4 tbsp butter
•1 tbsp Sherry Peppers Sauce
•1 tsp Cajun Power Spicy Garlic Pepper Sauce – or your fave hot sauce, to taste
•1/2 tsp dried parsley
•1 tsp Seasoned Salt
•1/4 tsp black pepper
•1/4 tsp Aleppo pepper
*No Sherry Peppers Sauce? No Problem! Simply add a bit of decent sherry (none of that “cooking” stuff) and a dash or three of your fave hot sauce, to taste.
Heat your oven to 350º.
Wash the potatoes and cut into evenly sized chunks before tossing in a baking pan with the water, lemon juice, Sherry Peppers Sauce, hot sauce, and seasonings to coat, then dot the top with the butter.
Note 1: use a pan large enough for your potatoes to lie in a single layer.
Bake for 90 minutes, turning the potatoes over after 45 minutes.
Note 2: the original recipe called for roasting on the convection setting. I tried roasting on both convection and regular oven settings.
Both worked a treat.
