Potatoes are so versatile…. try these perfectly delicious roasties!
Peel (if needed) and cut potatoes into chunks. Par-boil for 5-10 minutes depending on the texture and size of potatoes. When you can see that the outer part of the potatoes are obviously softer than the centre, remove from heat and drain well.
Heat goose fat (for best taste!) or other cooking oil in a baking dish in a pre-heated oven for a few minutes. Remove dish from the oven and sprinkle dried oregano or herbes de provence in the oil. Add potatoes to dish and carefully spoon melted oil over them. Remember the oil is hot!
Cook in a pre-heated oven (around 200F, Gas mark 5-6) for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and turn them over. Return to oven for another 20 minutes.
Depending on the size of potatoes you may need to add an extra 5-10 minutes each side. Eat them while they’re hot and crunchy 🙂
Optional extra – Sprinkle some freshly ground sea salt half-way through cooking time.
