The Best Potatoes to Use

This recipe will accommodate any potato in your pantry. But if you’re shopping, look for these:

  • Russets – Delicious but with their thick skins, they should be peeled for this recipe.
  • Yukon gold – The buttery flesh and thin skin is a great choice for Greek lemon potatoes.
  • New potatoes – They don’t even need peeling!
  • Red potatoes – Waxy and thin-skinned, all you have to do is cut into uniform pieces.
