Tender, moist and yummy potatoes. The lemon makes these taste so good, just like those Greek potatoes you can get at the restaurant! These frequently find themselves on our dinner plates because they are easy to make and everyone likes the taste.

Had a very good Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, and these potatoes were one of the side dishes. The turkey, by the way, was humongous! We had so many things to eat, I think everyone was pretty full afterwards.

To make these potatoes, toss the halved baby potatoes, lemon juice, minced garlic, water, olive oil, salt and pepper in an oven dish.
