4 lbs medium gold potatoes

Juice from 2 lemons

100 ml extra virgin olive oil

250 ml vegetable stock

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp oregano

Salt and pepper, to taste

7 bay leaves

2 Tbsp polenta (or fine cornmeal)


Step 1: Preheat Your Oven

Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). This ensures that your oven is ready to cook the potatoes evenly and give them a beautiful golden color.

Step 2: Prepare the Lemon Garlic Mixture

In a medium bowl or a pitcher, combine the juice from two lemons, 100 ml of extra virgin olive oil, 250 ml of vegetable stock, minced garlic cloves, and 1 teaspoon of oregano. Mix these ingredients well to create a fragrant and flavorful stock mixture. The lemon juice adds a zesty freshness, while the olive oil and vegetable stock provide a rich base. The garlic and oregano infuse the mixture with wonderful aromatic notes that will permeate the potatoes as they bake.

Step 3: Prepare the Potatoes

Wash the potatoes thoroughly and cut them in half. Place the halved potatoes in a large baking pan or a shallow casserole dish. Using a larger pan or dish allows the potatoes to cook more evenly and ensures that each piece gets coated with the delicious mixture.

Step 4: Add the Lemon Garlic Mixture

Pour the lemon garlic stock mixture evenly over the potatoes. Ensure that all the potatoes are well-coated. This mixture not only flavors the potatoes but also helps them to become tender as they bake.

Step 5: Add Polenta and Bay Leaves

Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of polenta (or fine cornmeal) over the potatoes. The polenta adds a slight crunch to the exterior of the potatoes, enhancing their texture. Distribute 7 bay leaves across the pan. The bay leaves impart a subtle, earthy aroma that complements the other flavors beautifully.

Step 6: Bake the Potatoes

Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake the potatoes uncovered for 35 minutes. This initial baking period allows the tops of the potatoes to become golden and slightly crispy. After 35 minutes, remove the pan from the oven and carefully flip the potatoes over to ensure even cooking. Return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and golden crispy on all sides.

Step 7: Serve

Once the potatoes are perfectly baked, remove them from the oven. They should be tender on the inside with a deliciously crispy exterior. Serve the Lemon Garlic Roasted Potatoes hot, straight from the oven. These potatoes make an excellent side dish for a variety of main courses and are sure to impress your family and guests with their vibrant flavors and satisfying texture.


These Lemon Garlic Roasted Potatoes are a delightful addition to any meal. The combination of lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and oregano creates a flavorful marinade that infuses the potatoes with a delicious taste. The addition of polenta gives the potatoes a unique texture, making them crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Simple to prepare and incredibly tasty, this recipe is a must-try for anyone looking to elevate their side dish game. Enjoy these roasted potatoes at your next meal and savor the rich, zesty flavors they bring to your table.
