Roast Potatoes

When should I make it?

How long will it take?

Allow about 2 hours in total to prepare, boil and roast.

What ingredients do I need?

 You will need:

  • Sprigs of rosemary, chopped finely
  • About 2 or 3 cloves of garlic
  • Seasoning – Salt & Black Pepper
  • Olive oil

What are the main steps?
  1. Peel the potatoes and boil for about 15 to 20 minutes until part cooked but not completely cooked
  2. Drain and shake in the pan which will give a bruised / floury texture to the potatoes.
  3. Transfer potatoes to baking dish with olive oil and cloves of garlic
