¼ to 1/3 c. olive oil, butter, or other oil will work as well (butter/olive oil combo is perfect, too!)

6- 8 large-sized russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2 to 2” chunks

1 1/2 tablespoons dried herbs, oregano, thyme, and rosemary are good choices

juice of one lemon

1 whole garlic bulb broken into about 4 pieces, optional

½ teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon cracked black pepper

How to make Lemon Herb Roasted Potato Nuggets

Step 1: In salted water, parboil the potatoes for no longer than 3 to 4 minutes.

Step 2: In the meantime, prepared the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F. To prevent the potatoes from sticking to the pan, heat a glass or metal pan in advance.

Step 3: Drain the potatoes when done parboiling them and allow them to stand for about 5 minutes. Then, mix them well with the lemon juice. Now, add salt, pepper, herbs, garlic cloves, and olive oil.

Step 4: To the bottom of the prepared baking pan, transfer the seasoned potatoes, garlic, and oil. Roast the potatoes until all sides are nicely golden, turning the potatoes every 20 minutes or so. This takes about 60 to 75 minutes. Shake the pan after 10 minutes to make sure the potatoes are not stuck on the bottom.
