Easy roasties

PT1H10M

1
Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 8
2
Place the potatoes in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil. Cook until the potatoes are not cooked in the middle, but are starting to soften on the outside
  • 6 large Maris piper potatoes, peeled and cut into thirds
3
Drain and leave the potatoes in the colander for 5 minutes so the steam can escape. Sprinkle over a little salt and lightly toss the potatoes so the edges break up slightly - this will result in nice crispy roasties
  • 1 pinch of salt
4
Pour the oil or duck fat into a deep roasting tray and place in the oven for 10 minutes, until smoking hot
  • 150ml of vegetable oil, or duck fat
5
Remove the tray from the oven and spread the potatoes out in the tray, taking care not to splash yourself with hot oil
6
Roast for 45 minutes, turning the potatoes halfway to ensure they are nicely cooked all over. Remove from the oven and serve immediately
