Flavoured with garlic and rosemary, these roast potatoes are truly delicious. The secret to crunchy roast potatoes is to par-boil them before roasting. The potatoes not only absorb flavour and salt, but it helps them become really crispy while they roast in the oven.
I have been trying different recipes on here for for roasties for a few weeks now - followed the recipe to the letter. These were the best so far and voted a great hit by the family who love their roasties. One little point - my oven at home might be a little slow as 15 mins before they were due out they didn't seem brown enough so I increased the temp. to 200c. They were lovely and crispy. In fact I might just stick with these and stop my searching although there are lots more to try on here. - 26 Nov 2017
Are the potatoes roasted whole, or are they cut in half? The photo shows cut potatoes, I think, but the recipes doesn't mention anything about cutting. - 24 Nov 2017
I made it just as the recipe called for and it was wonderful. Nice creamy inside and crispy golden brown outside. I would make this for a guest dinner. my wife loved them - 13 Feb 2019 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
