Crispy Lemon Potatoes Step-by-Step

To make the best crispy lemon potatoes, you need to use the right potatoes. When making any roasted potatoes, I recommend using Yukon gold or russet potatoes as they are perfect for many recipes.

  1. Take your clean russet potatoes and cut them into wedges. Then, press your cloves of garlic.

  2. Place the potatoes in your deep baking tray. Add your pressed garlic, lemon juice, vegetable broth, olive oil, and seasonings (salt, pepper, oregano).

    Tip: To save time, we love using Santa Cruz Pure Lemon Juice. It will give it the same flavor as freshly squeezed lemon juice and save so much time!potato wedges seasoned with oil, broth, and garlic

  3. Place in the oven at 400°F for 40 minutes. Then, remove it from the oven and flip the potato wedges. Return it to the oven for additional 30-40 minutes to crisp the other side. Serve Hot!
