4. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the crushed potatoes and season with salt and pepper.

5. Sprinkle with parmesan.

6. Place the potatoes back in the oven and bake for another 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

7. Meanwhile, finely chop the roasted lemon (peel and all) and add to a small bowl along with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the basil and a pinch of salt.

8. Pour the lemon mixture over the potatoes and serve with feta cheese.
