Garlic Roasted Potatoes


  • 4-6 medium potatoes

  • 5 cloves garlic

  • salt & pepper

  • olive oil


  • 1.

    Peel and cube the potaotes - quarters for medium sized, 1/8ths for larger spuds.

  • 2.

    Smash the garlic cloves, remove stem end and halve.

  • 3.

    Place potatoes and garlic in a saucepan and cover with cold water.

  • 4.

    Par boil in plenty of cold water and a generous pinch of salt for around 10 minutes or until cubes are tender when pierced with a skewer.

  • 5.

    Better to be a little raw in the middle, than over cooked/boiled.

  • 6.

    Drain (making sure to retain the garlic).

  • 7.

    Preheat oven to 200DegC - putting roasting pan in to preheat also.

  • 8.

    When temperature reached, remove pan, drizzle with olive oil and gently place the cubed potatoes and garlic into the pan - cut side down.

  • 9.

    Season with salt and pepper.

  • 10.

    Bake for 25-45 minutes, turning potatoes 2 or 3 times during baking.


Even better if you use Duck fat rather than olive oil!
Also fab using orange sweet potato and/or pumpkin and parsnips
