Hints and tips

  • These potatoes would be a perfect side to have with any traditional roast, steak or fish.
  • For a light vegetarian dinner, try adding slices of cheese to the tops of the potatoes 5 minutes before the end of the cooking time. Top with sweetcorn, chives and a dollop of sour cream.
