Fantastic! I marinated the potatoes in the mix for a while before I baked them-once had a greek boyfriend and that's how he did it-and I used fresh oregano as I have heaps of it growing.

Had to make these to see what all the fuss was about. Mirjam, I'm pleased to join the bandwagon. These fries are spectacular! The lemon and spices really came through! I used the same spices on a nice Porterhouse steak which I put in the Geroge Foreman grill. McDonald's fries right about now pale by comparison to these!

This is possibly one of the best recipes I have tried on Zaar to date! They are wonderful! The lemon juice really does give them a "kick". I added 2 more potatoes and cut them up like french fries, they are terrrific!! I highly recommend this recipe, and make sure to double it because you won't have enough!! Yes they ARE THAT GOOD!!!

I didn't cut these into the big wedges called for, I sliced them more thinly (personal perference) and cooked 'em on a baking stone. These were fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! We used fresh oregano, but the thing that really made these were the tang of lemon that developed in the aftertaste. Very, very good! Thank you!

Well said I "why is everyone raving over these Geek potatoes?" Well I found out , they are excellent! I did them on my bakiing stone and they came out crisp on the bottom and just the right texture for the potatoe. I marinated them for about 3 hours in the fridge and put in 2 extra cloves of garlic. I used fresh oregano Thanks Mirjam for another winner

Beware of "skinny" potatoes! I buy long thin russets as baking potatoes because they cook faster. I cut them into 8 wedges, but it wasn't until the directions said to place them skin side down that I realized I had made a mistake. My wedges were slices, too thin to stand up. I reduced the cooking time, but they still were dry. The good news - the flavor is wonderful. I will certainly make this again with more "rounded" potatoes.

These were outstanding. I did let the potatoes marinate about 1 hour and used fresh oregano, because I had some on hand. Wonderful flavor and a great change from regular fries. Next time, I will double the recipe. Thanks for a great idea.

Loved this recipe. So quick & easy but has a wonderful flavor & aroma. My son had seconds and he usually will not touch anything with lemon in it. (He didn't even notice). Great side to self in a pinch. Thanks it will become a regular!

Fantastic and so simple. I used a bit more oregano and also added some dried parsley. I made them as a side dish for steaks the other night, and they were quite a hit. My mother (who is Greek) used to make a very similar marinade for her baked chicken and potato dish. Maybe I will post it later...

These were "ok", but I would have added more garlic and basted them in oil.
