Crispy garlic potatoes


One of my ultimate comfort foods are jacket potatoes and roast potatoes come a close second. I love working with garlic so decided to infuse these potatoes with garlic and chilli oil to give a bit of heat. Makes an excellent side to any dish of your choice. I especially enjoy the crispy bits!


15 new potatoes
2 cloves garlic crushed
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika or chill powder if more heat required


1. Preheat the oven to 200c/400f/gas mark 6, place an oven tray in the oven. Par boil the potatoes for 10 minutes. Drain and crush the potatoes a little with a potato masher

2. Carefully take out the tray from the oven and pour in the olive oil. Add the salt, paprika or chilli powder and garlic. Slowly put the potatoes in the tray and coat in the garlic chilli oil thoroughly

3. Place tray back in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Check to make sure they are golden and crispy. Serve as an accompaniment to any dish
