Simple Crispy Oregano Roasted Potatoes with Creamy Feta Sauce. Each little potato wedge is perfect when scooped up with a bit of creamy cheese. The secret is to roast the potatoes with lemon, garlic, and oregano. Then place them over a bed of creamy feta. Finish the plate off with a dusting of paprika and chili flakes. Delicious as either an appetizer or a side dish. These are the potatoes that everyone will beg you to make again!

If there’s one food my family universally loves, it’s potatoes. Roasted, mashed, fried, any way you do up a potato, they’re usually happy. Growing up, my dad would make what he called “home fries”, also known as potato wedges.

If my memory is correct, he seasoned them with just salt and pepper then roasted them with olive oil. He may have sometimes put some spices on the wedges, but however he seasoned them, they were SO GOOD. A little crispy on the outside, but soft and delicious inside.

Does anyone else make home fries? I feel like this could be a midwest thing…

When my dad would make his home fries, we’d either eat them without a sauce or with ketchup. Nothing fancy by any means, but just good food, you know? And I will not lie, I love a dip in ketchup.

I’ve been thinking about my dad’s home fries recently and how I might be able to create a similar recipe, but a little more exciting and fit for spring. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with the creamy feta sauce that I’ve been making. So I decided to try that sauce with potatoes…

One of the most delicious combinations. So today we’re putting the 2 together!

Details

When my dad made potatoes he’d always use russet potatoes, but I wanted these to be a little more bite-sized, so we’re using baby potatoes. The first step is to roast the potatoes with lemons, garlic, and oregano.

About halfway through cooking, pull the lemons and garlic off the pan. We’re going to use these to make the herby oil.

The two main ingredients for the oil are roasted lemon wedges and garlic, but the herbs are very important too.

Chop the roasted lemon slices and garlic, then mix with olive oil, a squeeze of honey, and a big handful of fresh herbs. I like to use dill, parsley, and basil. Then season with plenty of salt, pepper, and chili flakes.

When the potatoes are done cooking, toss them with the herby oil. As soon as the heat from the potatoes touches the oil, you immediately smell all those wonderful herbs.

The feta

You all know how it goes around here, never enough sauce. This is a little different though, it’s a very, very creamy sauce, almost dip-like, but still saucy. It’s whipped feta cheese with a bit of cream cheese and lemon.

The salty feta creates an addicting sauce. Every spoonful is delicious on its own, but especially when scooped up with these crispy roasted potatoes.

Here is how you serve this

I like to swirl the feta sauce onto a big serving plate, then take those potatoes and arrange them over the sauce. I love adding the potatoes on top of the sauce while they are still warm. The heat from the potatoes really helps everything melt together and become even more flavorful.

Drizzle over more of the herb oil, then season with smoked paprika, chili flakes, and sea salt.

Everything settles and kind of melts into each and it’s DELICIOUS. That salty feta with the potatoes is really the most special combo. The garlic, lemon, and herbs, only add to the deliciousness.

Whether served as an appetizer or side dish, this is such a crowd-pleasing dish. These potatoes are great for making a weeknight a little more exciting. They’re also great for serving up at a gathering, and they don’t disappoint!

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 425° F.
    2. On a baking sheet, toss the potatoes, lemon wedges, garlic cloves, and oregano with 1/4 cup olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, or until tender. 
    3. Remove the potatoes from the oven. Remove the charred lemon and garlic from the baking sheet. Return the pan to the oven for 20-25 minutes more, until crispy.
    4. To make the herb oil. Finely chop 1-2 roasted lemon wedges – rind and all, discarding any seeds. Chop/mash the garlic into a paste. Add the lemon and garlic to a bowl. Add 1/3 cup olive oil, the mixed herbs, and the honey. Season with salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
    5. To make the feta sauce. Combine the feta, cream cheese, and lemon juice in a blender and blend until creamy. If desired, thin with additional lemon juice.
    6. Grab the potatoes from the oven and toss with half the herb oil and the sesame seeds. Swirl the feta onto a large serving plate, then arrange the potatoes over the feta. Drizzle over the remaining herb oil and sprinkle everything with paprika, chili flakes, and sea salt. Eat warm. Sooo delicious.

    I made this recipe (used dill in the herb oil) to accompany a slow roasted leg of lamb for a big party. I made homemade sourdough naan and we slathered the feta on the naan and topped it with shredded lamb, potatoes, and herb oil. OH MY WORD. So, so good. Thanks!

    I made everything the day before, then reheated the potatoes in the oven while the quiche was cooking, so they were nice and crispy. I served this for Easter Brunch yesterday, and it was a big hit for our lemon-lovin’ family. My sauce was pretty thick even with thinning with lots more lemon juice, so I may add a bit of water next time. This is a keeper for sure. Thanks Tieghan!

    Made these for Easter and they were a huge hit! Loved all the herbs, feta and lemon, such a great combination.
    For the feta I did have to add a bit of water to help it along as it was too thick and wouldn’t blend together. I also added more lemon juice about a lemon and a half (I doubled the recipe) to get a more lemony punch.
    Overall a really great recipe, will definitely keep these in the rotation! Thank you!

    Holy moly, these were SO TASTY. Made them for Easter dinner and they were a hit! I foolishly bought crumbled feta when I should have bought blocked, which made the whipped feta far less creamy, but tossing the warm potatoes melted it a bit and honestly the flavor was so good it didn’t even matter. The herb oil would be good on just about anything! Loved them, will definitely be making again!

    1. Hey Stephanie,
      Perfect!! Thanks so much for giving this recipe a go, I am thrilled to hear that it was a winner! Have the best week!🌸 xT
