recipe edit edit

Ingredients:

8 large potatoes, peeled, cut into large wedges (about 6-7 wedges per potato)
4 garlic cloves, minced (more garlic is a good thing, less garlic is a no-no for this recipe)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup water
1 tablespoon dried oregano (get the Mediterranean, it’s the best!)
1 lemon, juiced
sea salt
fresh coarse ground black pepper

Directions:

1 Preheat oven to 420¬įF A reviewer has suggested spraying the baking pan with Pam – that sounds like a great idea!
2 Put all the ingredients into a baking pan large enough to hold them.
3 Season generously with sea salt and black pepper.
4 Make sure your hands are very clean and put them in the pan and give everything a toss to distribute.
5 The garlic will drop into the water/oil solution but its flavour will permeate the potatoes, and this way, it won’t burn.
6 Bake for 40 minutes.
7 When a nice golden-brown crust has formed on the potatoes, give them a stir to bring the white underside up, season lightly with a bit more sea salt and pepper and just a light sprinkling of oregano.
8 Add 1/2 cup more water if pan appears to be getting dry, and pop back into oven to brown other side of potatoes.
9 This will take about another 40 minutes.
10 Do not be afraid of overcooking the potatoes- they will be delicious.
11 Note: I often melt a bouillon cube in the water; if you do, make sure to cut back some on the salt.

  1. Butter a frying pan, or the outside of each slice of bread, whichever you prefer, and put one side of sandwich on pan with cheese on top. (you can also add some olive oil to the pan, if you want.) Then add the top slice right away. Lower the heat and cover to help the cheese melt.
  2. Check to see if bread is brown after no more than a minute and a half, although more time may be needed for desired results. When bread is brown enough, flip. Dispose of the left over butter grounds out of the pan, so the next flip will be fresh.
