Greek Lemon Potatoes

Traditionally named Lemoni Patatas, are oven roasted lemon garlic and oregano flavored potatoes are to die for! They are easy to make and are always the first to be eaten, whenever I take them to a party. The  lemon juice marinate gives such intense flavor, and the cooking method really caramelizes the outside of the potatoes. As you’ll see, I’m using disposable pans because they are easier to transport and drop off to my friends.
