Confession Friday. That’s a thing right? Well, I hope so because I am confessing that I love Greek Potatoes and that they make my life a better a happier place. Seriously, these Greek potatoes are so crispy and crunchy on the outside while staying so steamy hot, and soft on the inside. Certainly, mine and Andrews’s favorite go-to-snack and can be made in such large quantities to please a whole family for your next feast!

Ingredients for Greek Style Potatoes

Ingredient Notes: 

Potatoes: Okay, there is no secret here that obviously the main ingredient for this recipe is potatoes. Potatoes are rich in vitamins and minerals. Potatoes are linked to helping improve blood sugar control, reduce heart disease risk, and to boost your immunity. They can also help with your digestion, and even combat signs of aging. Can you say SUPERFOOD!?

EVOO: Otherwise known as extra virgin olive oil, a staple in every kitchen, especially Greeks. The key here though is to make sure you buy the good stuff. Do not buy cheap EVOO because it will not taste as good and likely is filled with things you don’t want in your olive oil. Instead, look for “extra virgin”, avoid anything in a clear glass bottle (light is the enemy), and look at the “best by” date and remember the fresher the better.

Tip: for extra crispiness finish your potatoes off with a 5-minute broil in the oven.

FAQ & Expert Tips: 

What kind of potatoes should I use? My favorite are russet potatoes because they are high in starch and low in moisture. This makes the perfect potato for fries!

Do I need to peel the potatoes? Nope! You do not need to peel potatoes, in fact, the skin can add to the crunch. You will want to make sure you wash them well first though!

What dipping sauce should I serve these with? This is easy because you can legit serve these with anything…. aioli, ketchup, spicy mayo, tzatziki, etc. But to be completely honest… you might not what dip at all! They are THAT good.

Yum! I find I am often using potatoes for suppers at least 5-6 days a week. So when I stumbled upon this recipe I had to try it out! My husband loves it and with two little mouths to feed, they gobbled it up! I highly recommend this easy recipe as it is soooo darn tasty and has very little prep time. This one is now on our “go-tos” list! Maria does it again!
