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

These were great potatoes! The best part was that both my DSs LOVED them! They usually do not eat any potato that is not shaped like a French fry or tater tot! lol Though these tasted like French fries, it is a start towards other potato dishes. :) I used 3 large potatoes so added a little more lemon juice. I didn't really taste the juice after they cooked, but it did help soften the potatoes some and draw out a lot of the water. Made for ZWT9.

Wonderfully flavored potatoes! I made these frying with significantly less oil than called for but did us the lemon juice, salt and 45 minutes set time. These were quite a tasty treat given our restrictive diet. Thanks for the post.

Lovely flavor. I skipped the salt and used about 2 Tbsp of oil for cooking. When I put the fried spuds of the paper towels to drain any extra oil I very lightly sprinkled them with Greek seasoned sea salt. The lemon flavor in mine was quite mild but even so these were yummy.

I also used less olive oil as suggested by NorthwestGal. These were so easy to make and the taste was great! I served them with lamb burgers covered with melted goat cheese w/ proscuitto, fresh tomatoes and a little mayo on a bun. Congrats alligirl on your Super Bowl win.

I followed Northwestgal's advice and used olive oil just coated the bottom of the non stick frying pan.Sitting time works fine with me,since sometimes I cut them up beforehands.Flavor really comes through in this dish!

Allowing the potatoes to meld with the salt and lemon juice was a nice touch here. But it was a little more oil than we're used to, and it made the potatoes a little soggy. So I reduced the oil to about 1/4 cup or so (didn't really measure) to cover the bottom of a skillet and sauted the remaining potatoes until golden, and they were much better. Thanks for sharing your recipe, alligirl. Made for Zaar World Tour #6.
