About this recipe: These roasties are lovely and crispy, perfect for all roast dinners. The tumeric gives a nice colour, but it isn't important for the taste.
King Edward, Maris Piper and Desirée potatoes work well for nearly any use, including roasting. For a perfect roast potato, however, I prefer Pentland Dell.
Used different ingredients. i didnt have any oregano and turmeric so i improvised a bit and i used "schwartz perfect shake chicken" and it was the best rosties ive ever done - 26 Sep 2010
The roasties worked really well, the only thing I would advise is boiling the potatoes a little bit longer, right until the outsides are sort of breaking down. That way the oil can get into the skin easier and they go even crisper. - 07 Jul 2009
Altered ingredient amounts. I didn't have beef dripping so I used olive oil, worked brilliantly. - 03 May 2009
