Lemony Potatoes


These potatoes are flavored with butter, onions, and lemon.


  • 2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cubed (1-inch pieces)
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


Cook potatoes in boiling water to cover for 3 minutes; drain well and set aside.

Sauté chopped onion in melted butter in a large skillet over medium heat until tender. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and stir well. Add potatoes, and stir gently to combine. Spoon potato mixture into a lightly greased 11- x 7- x1/2-inch baking dish.

Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 50 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned, turning occasionally.

Serves 6.
