These Mediterranean style potatoes will change the way you look at a potato. They are so good! The potatoes are not only creamy and tender on the inside but the exterior is caramelized and crispy. The flavors are even better because what is better than olive oil, lemon juice, and herbs?

I have always been a fan of Greek-style potatoes when I would go to a Greek restaurant. I almost always order them as a side to my dish. The flavors of lemon and olive oil just make me happy! These are reminiscent of those restaurant potatoes I always order. They go perfectly with any protein on the side, especially chicken.

I often make these Mediterranean style potatoes when I have friends coming over for dinner because they are such a crowd-pleaser. Everyone always raves how delicious they are from flavor to texture. I really hope you give these a try for yourself! I promise you will not be disappointed. I have actually been meaning to write this recipe for a while now and am so happy that I am finally sharing it with you all.

Here are some other potato recipes worth trying as I am a huge potato fan and have plenty:

Batata Harra (spicy potatoes), chimichurri potatoes, scalloped potatoes. Please do share with me on my Instagram page any remakes you do! I would love to see and leave a comment below to let me know what you think!
