Roast Potatoes Recipes

Ingredients :

675g potatoes


olive oil


Method :
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C, Gas 6.
  2. Peel the potatoes and, if large, cut them in half.
  3. Parboil the potatoes for 10 minutes.
  4. Drain.
  5. Lightly score the surface of each of the potatoes with a fork.
  6. Roll them in the flour and tap them gently to remove any excess.
  7. Heat 5mm olive oil in a shallow roasting tin until smoking hot.
  8. Put the potatoes in the hot oil and baste to coat them in oil.
  9. Roast for about an hour.
  10. Baste and turn the potatoes twice during cooking.
  11. Drain on kitchen paper to remove excess oil and sprinkle with salt before serving.

Floury potatoes make the best crisp roast potatoes. Garlic or rosemary can be added to the oil, to flavor the potatoes during cooking.

Cooking Tip - It is a good idea to roast the potatoes in a roasting tin fitted with a draining tray. This keeps them out of the oil but enables basting from the tin below.

Serves 4 - 6
