Crispy Garlic Roasted New Potatoes…


I had to make and roast these again, as the potatoes were too good for boiling or steaming and my love of roasted/jacket potatoes got in the way! And rightly so! The outcome was gooooood! I didn’t want to peel them and roast them in the usual way but instead wanted to serve them as mini mini jacket potatoes with a crisp skin, that I just adore!


Again such a versatile ingredient and so cute and small that there was no need to parboil them. Just straightforward oil, garlic and herb coating and roast til perfection.

I also made hasselback potatoes but this time a healthier version with olive oil and not butter. We enjoyed both types with mature Cheddar cheese omelettes and freshly boiled veg!



500g mini baby potatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves
1 tsp dried oregano
salt to taste


• Preheat oven to 190°c and pour the oil into a baking tray lined with foil, place in the oven to warm the oil through

• Meanwhile prep by scrubbing the potatoes and pierce each of them

• Take the baking tray out of the oven, add the oregano and crushed garlic, mix into the oil


• Gently place in all the mini potatoes, sprinkle salt all over them and massage the oil into the skins with the herbs and garlic too


• Roast in the oven for 40-50 minutes until the potatoes are nice and crispy and golden on the outside and super fluffy on the inside
