  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 lb baby or fingerling potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley leaves


  • Preheat the oven to 375º F.
  • Cut the potatoes in half.
  • Mix in a big bowl the olive oil, butter, garlic, lemon juice, oregano, salt and black pepper. Add potatoes and toss until the potatoes are well coated.
  • Arrange potatoes, cut side down, on a rimmed baking sheet and spread out into 1 layer.
  • Roast potatoes until tender and tops are golden, bottoms are browned and crisp, about 35–40 minutes.
  • Remove the potatoes from the oven, sprinkle with parsley, and serve hot.


I used Fingerling potatoes but you can also use baby potatoes or Yukon Golds. If the potatoes are too big just cut into wedges.
