Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Delicious with almost any meat or fish entree, these crispy potatoes from Mitzi Sentiff in Annapolis, Maryland are really something special. “Tangy lemon permeates the potatoes and adds marvelous flavor,” Mitzi promises.

    I really loved this recipe. I substituted oregano for the herb, only because I'm not a huge fan of rosemary. The potatoes were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. The fresh lemon slices are a nice, subtle addition. This one's a keeper, especially with grilling season coming up!

    To be fair, this 4-star review may be tainted. I did not have fresh rosemary so I used dried instead. I think the fresh would have made a difference. Good potatoes, though!

    I also used the gourmet mix of potatoes--red, yellow, purple--and it was delicious. Whole family loved this & will definitely make again.

    Awesome and easy! I used Italian seasoning rather than rosemary, since I'm not a huge fan of it. The dish was incredible, and I will make this over and over.

    I used one of those gourmet mixtures of fingerling potatoes -- red, yellow, purple, etc. -- and it turned out very tasty. It was also quick and easy. I will definitely be making this recipe again and would recommend it.
