Roast Potatoes


  • 1 kg Albert Bartlett rooster potatoes
  • Vegetable or olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 7 or 220 degrees Celsius.
  • Place a roasting tray in the oven with a generous amount of oil.
  • Peel the potatoes, rinse well, slice into halves or quarters (depending how large they are) and place in a pan of boiling water.
  • Boil for 10 minutes maximum then drain the water.
  • Place the lid on the pan and shake the potatoes (these is the most important part for crispy, fluffy roasties!)
  • Place the roast potatoes into the tray of hot oil, season well with salt and pepper and place in the oven.
  • Roast for 20 minutes, turn the potatoes over in the oil ensuring they are coated, then return for another 20 minutes.
