Perfect Roast Potatoes | Food in a Minute
These golden, crunchy potatoes make the perfect accompaniment for your favourite roasts.
- 750g potatoes* peeled and cut into evensized pieces 4-5cm
- ½cup olive oil
Step 1Preheat oven to 200°C (fan assisted).
Step 2Put prepared potatoes into a saucepan with just enough cold water to cover the potatoes. Cover. Bring to the boil. Allow potatoes to boil for 5 minutes.
Step 3Drain potatoes very well. This is best done through a colander. Return potatoes to the pan over a low heat to allow any excess water to evaporate. With the lid on shake the pan to ‘rough’ up the potatoes.
Step 4Pour oil into a roasting pan and heat in the oven until hot. Add the potatoes in a single layer, turning them to coat in the oil. Roast for 30 minutes. Turn potatoes and roast a further 15-20 minutes, until golden and crispy. Season with salt and serve immediately.
