Can’t wait to try your Greek Lemon Potatoes,
In the recipe, you salt the potatoes after they are cooked? Is this correct?
Yes, I always salt the potatoes after cooking. I find that salting them before cooking makes them release water and not taste as good.
Hi, This recipe looks delicious. I am hoping to pre make them so that I don’t have as much work up at the cottage. Will they last three days before reheating?
Yes they will!
These are very tasty. The mustard adds a nice flavor. Served with grilled skewers of Greek marinated chicken, zucchini, red bell pepper and onion. No leftovers! Printed this recipe to make again.
Blown away! I made a small batch last night for just me with your baked trout 😊 so delicious and easy! I’m making them again tonight!😂👍
