  • 8 to 10 Russet potatoes, quartered lengthwise, skins on
  • 3 Tablespoons zaatar (divided)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt (+/- to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly cracked pepper (+/- to taste)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Rinse and scrub the skins of the potatoes, then cut them lengthwise in half, then in half again lengthwise. Place them in a large bowl with cold water to soak while you are cutting the rest of the potatoes. 
  3. Measure out 2 Tablespoons of zaatar spice, 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper into a small bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  4. Drain the water off the potatoes, then dump the potatoes into a large bowl and sprinkle the zaatar mixture over them. Keep sprinkling the zaatar mixture and turned the potatoes over and over again in the bowl until the potatoes are covered in the zaatar mixture. 
  5. Line a 14 x 20 baking sheet with parchment paper, then dump the zaatar covered potatoes onto the parchment paper. Make sure they have room to breathe.  We line them up to ensure that every potato slice has room.
  6. Place them in the oven for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, take them out, flip them over, and bake for another 10 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. 
  7. When they are done, let them sit on the baking sheet and sprinkle them with the remaining 1 Tablespoon of Zaatar spice.
