I had friends over for dinner and the potatoes were a hit! It was time consuming to make them all golden as I like them. I would love to try to make then on the grill in my paella pan that is big enough to to handle all 4 potatoes.

Update: I made them with crumbled feta cheese and the cheese added lots of great taste to the potatoes. Double yum for these potatoes! I made half a batch of them to have with fried ham and eggs with homemade Italian toast. Loved everything about them!

We had breakfast for dinner tonight and these were great with an omelet and sausages. Easy recipe. Loved the hint of lemon. Will be making these again! I used red potatoes and didn't peel them.

This recipe was made on 11/15/13 as part of our dinner,and most importantly for the " Billboard Tag " game. I did something to this recipe that I seldom do, it was followed exactly as written. :) I did have some trouble with the potatoes sticking to the pan,but a bit more oil was added and it seemed to do the trick.The adding of the lemon juice sort of threw me off,but it wasn't bad at all. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

Loved the flavour from the added oregano & lemon. I think to get the slices nice and evenly browned you need a skillet large enough to have a single layer, flipping them constantly. I only did one potato so it worked fine for me.

A wonderful tasting potato dish! So good. Happy I have a special frying pan for our outdoor bbq, as I plan to make these for my family and friends when we gather for our backyard get togethers this summer. Added to my family cookbook as it will be a year around go to at our house!
