Potatoes are a natural part of a Greek dinner and on the mezé table, either baked, like here, or as fries. I got this recipe from Panos, so I have named it in his honour, but this is a common way to bake potatoes, they become soft and velvety inside and a bit crispy on the outside.
- 4 large potatoes
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 crushed / mashed garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp mustard
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- salt, pepper
If necessary, peel the potatoes. Cut them into chunks or boats. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, add the potatoes and stir well.
Pour everything in an ovenproof dish. Bake under foil for about 1.5 hours at 200 degrees C. Increase the temperature to 225 degrees C, remove foil and bake further, until the potatoes begin to brown.
