Baked potatoes - Greek Style

A very Greek traditional dish and another Sunday meal, very simple to make and bakes quickly.My house was always filled with beautiful scents that tickled our noses, when waking up but Sundays were always just a bit different. The scent was warmer,  probably because we were all together. These baked potatoes always accompanied roast beef or baked chicken.


 2 - 3 pounds potatoes depending on the size of your pan)
 4 cloves of garlic
 1/2 teaspoon oregano
*1/2 teaspoon mint
*1/2 teaspoon rosemary
   1/3 cup of olive oil
   1/3 cup of water
salt & pepper to taste

Cut potatoes length wise, wash them and place them in pan add all your ingredients and mix everything together make sure spices go everywhere. If you don't like rosemary and mint you can omit them, I always do. Cut your 3 garlic cloves on top of potatoes and live unpeeled and throw it inside, pour you olive oil and water and bake at 356 Fahrenheit for 45 minutes. If you would like you can cover them with parchment paper.  I'm getting hungry just writing about them. They are always better when eaten hot, we love this simple and tasty dish ! KALE OREXI !!
