A foolproof recipe for roasties that come out perfect every time.

Provided by Good Food team

Categories     Dinner, Side dish

Time 1h10m

Number Of Ingredients 4

16 potatoes the best ones to use are Desirée, as they hold their shape, but King Edward and Maris Piper are also good
2 tbsp plain flour
140g goose fat or duck fat or dripping
3 tbsp sunflower oil or vegetable oil

Steps:

  • Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Peel the potatoes and cut in half; if very large, cut into quarters, or leave whole if they are small. Tip into a saucepan, cover with cold water, then bring to the boil. Set the timer and boil for exactly 2 mins. Drain the potatoes well, then toss in the colander to fluff up their surfaces, sprinkling over the flour as you go.
  • Place a large, sturdy roasting tray over a fairly high heat, then tip in the fat and oil. When sizzling, lower in the potatoes carefully, then gently brown in the hot fat for about 5 mins so all the sides are covered with oil.
  • Roast undisturbed for 20 mins, then remove from the oven and gently turn them over with a fish slice. Place the tray on the hob to heat the oil, then return to the oven and cook for another 20 mins. Turn again, putting the tray back on the hob to heat the oil. Give them a final 20 mins in the oven, by which time you should have perfect roast potatoes.

ULTIMATE ROAST POTATOES



Ultimate roast potatoes image

This foolproof recipe will ensure even first timers get crispy skins and fluffy insides. Make sure your roast potatoes are perfect for Sunday lunch or even Christmas dinner

Provided by Angela Nilsen

Categories     Dinner, Side dish

Time 1h10m

Number Of Ingredients 4

1kg Maris Piper potatoes
100g duck or goose fat (for a luxurious taste), or 100ml/3½fl oz olive oil
2 tsp flour
Maldon salt, to serve

Steps:

  • Put a roasting tin in the oven (one big enough to take the potatoes in a single layer) and heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
  • Peel 1kg potatoes and cut each into 4 even-sized pieces if they are medium size, 2-3 if smaller (5cm pieces).
  • Drop the potatoes into a large pan and pour in enough water to barely cover them.
  • Add salt, then wait for the water to boil. As soon as the water reaches a full rolling boil, lower the heat, put your timer on and simmer the potatoes uncovered, reasonably vigorously, for 2 mins.
  • Meanwhile, put 100g duck or goose fat or 100ml olive oil into the hot roasting tin and heat it in the oven for a few mins, so it's really hot.
  • Drain the potatoes in a colander then shake the colander back and forth a few times to fluff up the outsides.
  • Sprinkle with 2 tsp flour and give another shake or two so they are evenly and thinly coated.
  • Carefully put the potatoes into the hot fat - they will sizzle as they go in - then turn and roll them around so they are coated all over.
  • Spread them in a single layer making sure they have plenty of room.
  • Roast the potatoes for 15 mins, then take them out of the oven and turn them over.
  • Roast for another 15 mins and turn them over again. Put them back in the oven for another 10-20 mins, or however long it takes to get them really golden and crisp. The colouring will be uneven, which is what you want.
  • Scatter with Maldon salt and serve straight away.

PERFECT TRADITIONALLY ENGLISH ROAST POTATOES



Perfect Traditionally English Roast Potatoes image

These are your standard traditional English roasties. IMO there is an art to making these, at least the perfect golden crispy kind that I grew up with. The trick is to give 'em a good shake in a colander after par-boiling to rough up the edges of the potatoes. Then once roasting; position spaced apart, turning only once or twice and basting in the hot oil every so often. If you don't manage the crispy texture (which you will, if you do the above!), they'll still taste excellent. You can't go wrong. I sometimes like to sprinkle rosemary/paprika/thyme or even a little garlic on top of mine for extra flavour.

Time 1h10m

Yield 2 people, 2 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 4

4 -6 large potatoes
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon pepper
1/4 cup vegetable oil (or enough to cover bottom of roasting pan)

Steps:

  • Peel and quarter potatoes.
  • Place in a saucepan with water and a pinch of the salt.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer them for 5-6 mins to slightly soften.
  • Meanwhile preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • When the potatoes have simmered drain them thoroughly in a colander shaking to roughen edges.
  • Let sit for a few mins to dry.
  • Pour just enough vegetable oil into a roasting pan (large enough to allow space around the potatoes) to cover bottom and heat in oven for a few minutes.
  • Gently place potatoes into the hot oil and coat them with it evenly.
  • Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the potatoes.
  • Every so often baste the potatoes in the oil to prevent drying (try not to move potatoes).
  • Turn potatoes once or twice (no more) halfway through (after 20 mins or so) to ensure even cooking.
  • Cook for 30-60 mins until gold and crispy (observe closely once near end).

  • Gently simmer for 15-20 minutes. They are done when a sharp knife easily inserts into one of the potatoes.
