Greek Style Potatoes

If you’ve been reading my website for a while you know that side dishes are not my “thing”. I just never get as excited about potatoes, rice, and vegetables as I do about a great main dish. But I’m trying to learn and evolve here… So when there is a side dish I taste or one that I cook and end up loving I am definitely going to pass it along here.

Recently I had some of my buddies over for a Greek-themed dinner. I made a triple batch of these potatoes and they disappeared faster than anything else on the table. Definitely a chef’s favourite compliment!
