Greek Mahogany Potatoes

Serves 8 to 12

5 pounds small to medium Yukon Gold potatoes
Olive oil
Juice from 1 to 1 1/2 lemons, strained
1 large or 2 small onions, diced small
Sea salt

1. Preheat the oven to 375º. Wash the potatoes and cut into wedges. Liberally coat 2 or 3 roasting pans with olive oil.
2. Put potato wedges in the pans and roll around to coat fully with oil. Arrange wedges cut-side down in neat rows.
3. Place the pans in the oven and roast. Do not turn the wedges or shake the pan. Start checking after an hour. You want a deep brown color on the sides that are in contact with the pan. While the potatoes roast, chop the onions.
4. As soon as you take the potatoes out of the oven, toss them with the onions, juice, and salt to taste. less
