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
Turned out perfect! Followed directions except added additional seasonings to par cooked potatoes. The extra step in par cooking potatoes is what makes these so very delicious! Will definitely be making again in near future. Served along side grilled steak and steamed asparagus. - 15 Apr 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
