How to Make Greek Potatoes with Whipped Feta
To create this dish, we’ll make both components separately and combine them at the end. Here’s everything you’ll need and how it’s done!
- Potatoes – We love to use small red potatoes for their crispy texture. However, baby golden potatoes work well, too.
- Olive Oil – This is crucial to help the spices stick to the potatoes and create a crisp, golden exterior.
- Spices – Greek seasoning, garlic, salt, and pepper combine to create the best Greek potatoes you’ll ever taste. You can find Greek seasoning in the spice section of most grocery stores. Or, make your own with a recipe like this!
- Feta – For the best results, we highly recommend using a full-fat block of feta as it will make your dip extra creamy and rich.
- Labne – A type of Middle Eastern yogurt that has been strained to resemble a consistency similar to soft cheese, this can typically be found in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store. Or, many people use cream cheese instead.
- Lemon Zest – Used to cut through the heaviness of the fats, creating a bright flavor and a well-rounded dish.
- Water – Use as little or as much as needed to achieve the consistency you like best.
- Create the Whipped Feta. Add the feta, labne, lemon zest, and water to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth, adding more water as needed until your desired consistency is reached. Set aside, or place in the fridge to chill.
- Prepare the Potatoes. Toss the potatoes with the oil and seasonings, coating them evenly. Then, add them to a baking sheet, and bake, flipping the potatoes halfway through, until they’re tender and crisp. Add any additional herbs, spices, or olive oil you want to include.
- Combine. Spread the whipped feta on a platter, and arrange the warm potatoes on top.
A common question we get is, “How should I serve Greek potatoes with whipped feta?” Honestly, there’s not really a right or wrong way! They’re delicious no matter what. However, we love to serve this dish as:
- An afternoon snack
- A party appetizer for game days and holidays
- As a side with proteins like Middle Eastern chicken or crispy air fryer chicken wings
How to Store and Reheat
This Greek potatoes with whipped feta recipe is great to make ahead of time. However, you’ll want to store the potatoes and dip separately to keep each component fresh.
For the potatoes, you’ll want to transfer them to a sealable bag or airtight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. For the whipped feta, you’ll want to transfer it to an airtight container, and store it in the fridge for up to 3 days.
When you’re ready to serve, set the feta at room temperature to warm up and become spreadable. Then, warm the potatoes in the oven at 350° Fahrenheit until your desired temperature is reached.
