Have a wonderful holiday with your family and friends. It's time for all of us to celebrate.

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...If you are still looking for something to serve with your steaks or plain grilled chicken, I highly recommend this simple potato dish. The potatoes are easy and inexpensive to make and they are simply packed with flavor. I made them for the first time last evening and I liked them so well that they will become are a regular feature at my table. The potatoes bake for what seems a long time, but they get brown and crusty and all-together delicious as they cook. I know those of you who try them will love them and serve them often. Here is how they are made.

Greek-Style Roast Potatoes...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite courtesy of

8 large potatoes, peeled, cut into large wedges ( about 6-7 wedges per potato)
4 to 6 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup water
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 lemon, juiced
Coarse salt
Coarse ground black pepper


1) Preheat oven to 420 degrees F. Line pan with foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray.
2) Place potatoes, garlic, olive oil, water, oregano and lemon juice in a baking pan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Season generously with sea salt and black pepper. Toss to distribute all ingredients.
3) Transfer pan to oven and bake for 40 minutes. When a golden crust has formed on potatoes, remove pan from oven, stir to turn bottom of wedges to top and lightly season with more salt, pepper and a sprinkling of oregano. If pan appears dry, add 1/2 cup more water to pan. Return pan to oven and bake for another 40 minutes, or until potatoes are crusty and brown. Remove potatoes from pan and serve immediately. Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
