      My husband said, "The potatoes were AWESOME!" The kids and I gobbled them up to. I could see these being made frequently in our house. I made them exactly as written with beautiful results. Thank you alligirl. Made for team Tasty Testers for the Greek cookbook during ZWT9.

      What yummy potatoes Granny!!! I made this for one serving, using a peeled and thick sliced red potato. I forgot to cut back on the lemon, but it worked out wonderful for me. I also didn't use the amount of oil, as it wasn't necessary for the amount I made for lunch. These were nice and crispy on the outside but soft and moist on the inside, perfect fried potatoes!!! Thanks so much for sharing a great recipe. Made for your win in the Game Forum Trivia Event.

      I made these as directed EXCEPT, I put them in the oven to bake (yes, I know, fried potatoes, I'm just not a huge lover of frying :( ) - they were wonderful! lemon flavour came through loud and clear but not over-powering, very pleasant, crisped nicely, DH was delighted since he loves potatoes and I am not a fan, so this was a real treat for him! Really nice Alligirl, made and enjoyed for ZWT 9
