At a dear friend's request, I am posting the recipe for the Greek Style Potatoes we ate the year we studied Greece. This recipe originally came from Allrecipes.com, my favorite online recipe resource.
In the summer of 2004, I planted Greek Oregano in my vigorously established herb garden. The oregano thrived and I dried and froze many lovely sprigs to use in my Christmas menu. Though this potato recipe does not call for oregano, I am fairly certain I used some in addition to the dried thyme and rosemary.
The original recipe, at the Allrecipes.com site can be found here: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Greek-Style-Potatoes/Detail.aspx Without further ado:
