These sensational Greek Potatoes with Feta will transport you to a 🌊 seaside taverna on the Greek coast. The seasoning is so simple but delivers big on taste. Using a Greek seasoning blend gives these potatoes a wonderful combination of 🌿 oregano, basil, thyme and rosemary flavors. To me, feta is life but it is totally optional in this recipe.

Why You’ll Love Greek Potatoes with Feta

These Greek Potatoes with Feta are one of my favorite side dishes. It’s simple to prepare, the flavors are out of this world, and they’re always a hit with everyone at the table. The Greek seasoning blend is perfection, and I love the tang that comes from the 🍋 lemon juice. The roasted garlic is a simple but huge addition to this dish: sweet and caramelized with a deep garlic flavor that’s not at all pungent on the 🥔 potatoes. You’ll go to this one again and again.

How to Prepare Greek Potatoes with Feta

🔪 Use a sharp knife to peel and cut the potatoes into wedges. (I like to cut the potatoes in half and then lengthwise to achieve wedges.)

🫒 To a large mixing bowl, add olive oil, a generous sprinkle of Greek seasoning, extra salt if needed, lemon juice, and throw in the whole unpeeled garlic cloves.

🥔 Massage everything together with clean hands and then place the potatoes flat in a baking dish so there’s enough room in between and they don’t overlap each other.

🔥 Wrap the dish in foil and bake at 425F (220C) for 45 min covered and then another 15-20 min uncovered.

🧄 Once your garlic has cooled slightly, you can squeeze it out into your potatoes and toss them together.

😋 Garnish with finely minced parsley and feta cheese and enjoy.

Nonna’s Tip 🧄

Leave the garlic cloves whole while baking so that they don’t burn. At the end, you can toss the garlic with the potatoes or simply spread it onto fresh bread.

Variations and Substitutions for Greek Potatoes with Feta

  1. Make your own Greek seasoning blend by combining oregano, paprika, pepper, onion powder, garlic and 🧂 salt to taste to achieve similar results.
  2. For even more lemon flavor, add some 🍋 lemon zest as well.
  3. If you want a stronger, more pungent 🧄 garlic flavor, use freshly minced garlic instead of roasted.

Common Questions

Can I use a different type of potato?

Yes, you can use any type of potato you like, but I find yellow potatoes are amazingly creamy in texture.

Can I use minced garlic instead of whole cloves?

You certainly can. However, keep in mind that if you use minced garlic you will get a stronger garlic flavor in these Greek potatoes. Roasting whole garlic cloves will give you a sweeter, more mellow garlic flavor. But both will work!

What should I do if my potatoes are not getting crispy?

The potatoes should not touch in the baking dish. Otherwise, they’ll just steam. For extra crispiness, you can bake them uncovered for a few extra minutes

Can I prepare these Greek Potatoes with Feta in advance?

You can peel and cut the potatoes in advance and then store them in water in the refrigerator. However, it’s best to bake them just before serving so they stay crispy.

How do I prevent the potatoes from sticking to the baking dish?

Make sure to coat the potatoes well with olive oil, and you can also line the baking dish with parchment paper.
