Roasted Lemon Potatoes
August 25, 2016
These potatoes are so delicious & easy to make. They compliment so many different dishes, especially seafood & steak. I love making a batch or two & freezing them in portions, so I always have some on hand ready to defrost & reheat when needed.
Serves: 5 - 8
1 Preheat oven to 400°.
2 Place potatoes in a large 4 quart glass baking dish.
3 Heat EVOO & butter in a small skillet over medium heat. When bubbling, stir constantly till butter starts foaming & turns golden brown.
4 Pour butter mixture over potatoes & toss to coat.
5 Spread potatoes out so they're in a single layer, skin side down.
6 Bake on middle oven rack for 35 minutes.
7 Leave on middle rack & broil about 3 to 4 minutes till starting to brown slightly. Keep your eye on them so they don't burn.
8 Remove from oven & let sit 5 minutes.
9 Add lemon juice, zest, thyme, salt & pepper. Toss gently till evenly coated & serve.
Tips & Suggestions
1 Freezing: at step# 9, just add the thyme salt & pepper. Don't add lemon juice & zest. Cool to room temp & freeze in airtight containers, 6 to 8 pieces per person. Once reheated, add the appropriate amount of lemon juice & zest & serve. I've found the lemon juice breaks down the potatoes in the freezer.
