Greek-Style Roasted Potatoes

Updated: Mar 3

This is another recipe adapted from one found in a Waitrose food magazine. I find feta has such a punchier taste when it's oven baked along with the rest of the dish. One of my favourite pasta dishes to make is a huge pan of Mediterranean roasted veg, where I bake the feta in with the vegetables and I find it just has such a richer flavour. This potato dish is very similar to that, but is the perfect accompaniment to any fish or meat meal for a little summery boost.


Jersey Royals are best in season from March to July, so outside of this period you can use a traditional roasting potato instead.
