Greek Lemon Potatoes Recipe: This Potato Recipe Has a Surprising Ingredient by Donna John
Lemon and potatoes go together like peanut butter and jelly. It just works. But sometimes it's a surprising ingredient that takes a standard recipe and makes it shine. In the case of this Greek lemon potatoes recipe, that ingredient is yellow mustard. Yes, plain ol' yellow mustard.
The Yukon gold potatoes are tossed with lemon juice, olive oil, yellow mustard, garlic and died oregano before being baked for about an hour. Water is added to the pan and the potatoes continue to bake in the oven until all the water has evaporated. This process results in a crispy, yet creamy, potato. Delicious!
