SO HOW'D IT GO?

These were so yummy!  I used red potatoes and didn't peel them - it made the potatoes a little crispy around the edges.  It was a bit lemony for my taste, so maybe next time I'll use a little less, but it was still delicious.

These were really good.  I omitted the water, used enough olive oil to coat the potatoes, but didn't need a whole quarter cup.  I used lemon juice and then sprinkled some lemon pepper, garlic salt/parsley mix, and basil instead of oregano.  They only took about 40-45 minutes to cook, and were perfect.  Thanks!

Mmm. My roommates and I really enjoyed these potatoes.

I used the juice of a whole lemon, but didn't use any lemon zest.
I cut the potatoes pretty small so they would cook faster, but they still took 1 1/2 hours in the oven.
Well worth the wait! And they made the apartment smell nice.

If Lemony Greek potatoes were living and were male, I would get engaged and marry it right away ;D OH GOSH, these were good!! I do agree the thinner and burned ones were the best ones. I cut the potatoes into bite size pieces, then microwaved them for 7 minutes before throwing them into the oven. That took away the time in the oven. :) THANK YOUUU. Marry me greek potatoes!

Very good!  It wasn't what I excepted, but that's not a bad thing.  I didn't have lemon zest, but I left everything else the same; and I peeled the potatoes.

This had too much of a lemon taste for me. I think next time I'll follow the advice of another reviewer and only use half a lemon. I think I'll add a little more garlic next time, too. Also, I baked mine a little over an hour and a half and some of the liquid still wasn't absorbed. Otherwise, nice recipe.
