GREEK POTATOES

This is a recipe based on the one posted by at Recipezaar http://www.recipezaar.com/Greek-Potatoes-Oven-Roasted-and-Delicious-87782 These would be great for a chilly night due to the baking time being a total of 80 minutes, which gives them a flavorful zing from the spices and garlic flavor seeping and baking into them. This receipe is enough to serve 6 people and I estimate the cost with the ingredients that I used to be around $3, which is cheaper than one fast food sandwich. I loved these, but they were a bit too exotic for Marv and Kyle's tastes and they are just plain old potatoes fans.
Preheat Oven to 440 degrees
Pare around 8 potatoes and cut into wedges (6-7 per potato)and place in a bowl.
Add:4 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup olive or canola oil (I used canola as I did not have any olive oil left)
1 tbps Oregano
2 tbsp Lemon Pepper or juice of 1 lemon and 1 tsp pepper
Few dashes of Sicilian spices (optional)
Few dashes Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
Few dashes pepper
The toss until well blended.
Pour into baking pan lined with aluminum foil(optional, but makes clean up easier)Then pour the 1 cup water into the baking pan and distribute the potatoes evenly the place in oven and bake for 40 minutes.
After 40 minutes, take the pan out and stir the potatoes and will probably need to add an additional 1/2 water, then place back in the oven for another 40 minutes.
Take out and they will look look like the first picture and they are ready to serve!
