4 large russet baking potatoes (8 medium), peeled and quartered
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (3 lemons)
1 tablespoon dried oregano, preferably Greek oregano, plus more for garnish
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Heat oven to 500 degrees. Place potatoes in a metal roasting pan large enough to fit potatoes in a single layer. Add 1 cup water, olive oil, lemon juice, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Toss potatoes until well coated.
Bake, uncovered, until fork-tender and brown on the edges, about 50 minutes. Turn potatoes halfway through for even browning; add water if all the liquid has been absorbed, before they have fully browned. If desired, garnish with oregano; serve.
You probably want to double this recipe. It's that damn good. The recipe did not call for garlic but I added about 2 tablespoons of minced garlic to step one.
