Roast potatoes recipe


1 kilo Sebago, Coliban or Golden Delight potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons plain flour


Preheat oven to 200c.

Peel potatoes and cut into small pieces (6cm). Put the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Add a pinch of salt.

Bring the potatoes to the boil. When boiling, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes. Potatoes should be partially cooked only.

Drain potatoes well and return to saucepan. Give the saucepan a good shake to rough up the surface of the potatoes. Remove and roll the potatoes in plain flour that has had salt and pepper added to it.

Add oil to a baking tray and heat in oven. Remove and add potatoes to the hot tray.

Cook potatoes in oven turning once so they are golden and crispy. Allow about 40 minutes. Serves 4.
