Our foolproof recipe for crunchy, crispy, tasty 'tatties'!
Serves: 4 Preparation Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 1 hour 40 minutes

Crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle - discover how to make perfect roast potatoes using the recipe below.


  • 1kg Potatoes (E.G Maris Piper, cut into even pieces)
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 2 Large Sprigs of Fresh Thyme
  • 1 Small Sprig of Fresh Rosemary
  • 2 tsps of Rock Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 50g Salted Butter
  • 1 Tbsp Flour/Cornflour

1. Peel and roughly cut the potatoes into 2-3 inch pieces. These do not need to be even - the more diverse, the better.

2. Place your peeled, chopped potatoes into a saucepan of water, making sure the potatoes are just covered by the water level.

3. Cook on a medium heat for approximately 15 minutes. The potatoes should be parboiled - a knife should be able to slide through easily, but they are not fully cooked through.

4. Take the pan off the heat and allow the potatoes to sit in the water for a further 5 minutes, checking to make sure they are not breaking.

5. Place a piece of parchment on a large, deep baking tray. To this, add the chopped garlic,fresh rosemary and thyme, rock salt and olive oil.

6. Using a colander, drain the water from the potatoes.

7. Still in the colander, add the butter to your potatoes and gently shake, ensuring that they are evenly coated.

8. Then add your flour or cornflour and continue to shake and coat the potatoes until fully covered. The potatoes will start to break at the edges, giving a fluffy, ragged look.

9. Place the potatoes onto the baking tray and, using the corners of the parchment paper, gently pull towards the centre to coat the potatoes with the seasoning.

10. Once fully coated, place the baking tray on the middle shelf of a hot oven (180ºC).

11. Check on the potatoes after 40 minutes - take the tray out and, using a wooden spoon or spatula, gently press down on the potatoes and move them around to ensure even roasting.

12. Place them back into the oven and continue to bake until golden brown and crispy.


  • Use the discarded water from your parboiled potatoes to thicken sauces or gravy.
  • For Vegan alternative, omit the butter and use a little coconut butter, or olive oil, to help coat the potatoes with flour.
  • For a different flavour, goose fat can also be used instead of the olive oil.
  • You could easily turn this side dish into into a Cauliflower roast! Follow the recipe above using cauliflower florets for a tasty side dish, or whole cauliflower head as a vegetarian main!
  • Lastly (and whilst highly unlikely...), if you have any roasties leftover, use them to make a delicious sald with mixed leaves, diced avocado, plum tomatoes and a generous drizzle of balsamic glaze.
