Baked lightly crunchy potatoes are very popular in Greek houses. It is an excellent addition to various dishes of meat or fish. For their preparation we need three basic ingredients that are added to most Greek dishes: olive oil, lemon juice and oregano. Slowly baked potatoes absorb a lemon aroma that is slightly palpable while eating.
1. Peel the potatoes and cut them lengthwise into quarters or eight.
2. In a deep dish, cut the chopped potatoes thoroughly with the remaining ingredients.
3. Then, put everything into a deep baking tray or into a casserole and put in an oven preheated to 190 degrees.
4. In addition, the taste of potatoes can be enriched even by the position of a sprig of fresh rosemary and sprinkling with coarse-grained sea salt.
5. Bake without covering the pan for about an hour until the potatoes grow crispy.
