Crispy yet fluffy roast potatoes

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 45 mins
  • Yields: Serves 4


1kg peeled potatoes


Salt and pepper


1Steam/Boil Potatoes until fully cooked not par boiled.

2 While thats happening preheat the oven to maximum temp (mines 220°C) with a roasting tin with at least 1inch of vegetable oil. (You need to get everything SUPER hot. 10 mins preheating won't do here-you'll need at least 30min)

3When the potatoes are boiled &drained shake them a little or rub with a fork to rough up the surface. While they are still piping hot put them in the hot hot oil and baste.

4Get them back in the oven as quickly as possible so the temp of the oil doesn't drop.

5 Put the roasting tin on the shelf nearest the heating element of your oven.

6 Baste every 10min.

7Cook for 30-40 min until crispy &golden.

8Remove from oil and season very generously

Oh no. That’s awful. At least nobody got badly hurt. Evan always uses a roasting TIN. Partly for this reason and partly that we find a tin gives a better crisper result
