Most traditional herbed roasted potatoes recipes end up burning the herbs and garlic, not this one! Steaming the potatoes in a foil packet with lemon juice not only cooks the potatoes faster but gives them a bright taste finish.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large sheet pan with two sheets of aluminum foil. Coat the foil with non stick pan coating. In a large bowl combine lemon juice, oil, garlic, pepper, and dried herbs, stir to combine. Cut the potatoes in half and then each half into 3-4 wedges. Toss the potatoes with the herb lemon mixture. Spread onto the prepared foil, wrap into a parcel. Bake 20 minutes. Unfold the foil packet and spread out the foil until flat. Using a large spatula turn then spread out the potatoes so that they do not overlap, sprinkle with reserved lemon zest; continue to bake and additional 20 minutes.
This recipe was wonderful. Everyone seemed to enjoy them. There was hardly any left, just enough to use the quick tip with the email and throw the rest in with an egg scramble for breakfast the next morning.
I've made potatoes like this before and I didn't peel them. The smaller russets stay light when they're well scrubbed and steamed in the foil packet. The lemon juice I think tends to lighten them too. This looks like a great healthy side dish for my Thanksgiving meal! I'll rate it once I make them..
The picture looks as if the potatoes are peeled but it doesn't mention peeling them. Russets have a dark brown skin so I'm thinking peeling should be in the instructions as well. It will add to the prep time. Sounds like a good recipe overall. Will rate when I've made it.
Very good! Though I do know for next time to cook longer as they were a little under cooked. I might have gone for seconds if I had any more room in my stomach. Hubby was very impressed with it and did have seconds. I like that it's all items that I always have on hand. Will definitely make again!
I have a convection toaster oven for the overflow. Plus a Nu Wave oven so I have plenty of toys to cook with. I am making the turkey and a ham and probably the potato dish for our residents dinner. There's an oven in the downstairs kitchen too. It will be a fun day.
i do not have a comment because I have not made this as of yet. I intend to for Thanksgiving. This comment is for the ones who do not want to take up the oven with this. I have a George Foreman floor model grill that i intend to use. Any kind of grill will work as long as they fit mmm charcoal
