Before you start

Preheat oven to 200℃ | Large Saucepan | Mixing bowl | Colander Sieve

Prepare and boil the potatoes

  • Peel the potatoes & cut them into halves (or quarters if your potatoes are massive )
  • Fill (3/4’s full) a large pan with water & bring it to the boil
  • Add the salt & baking powder (this is a very important ingredient - it will make your potatoes super crispy)
  • Carefully pour the potatoes into the water, put the lid on & boil for 12 minutes - 15 minutes
  • Drain the water away & let the potatoes cool for 15 minutes
  • Transfer to a large mixing bowl

Make the infused oil

  • Dice the garlic
  • Pour the olive oil into a saucepan & heat it
  • Add the garlic, rosemary & thyme & cook them all together until the garlic has just started to brown
  • Pour the oil into a bowl (through a sieve)
  • Pour the infused oil you’ve just made into the potato bowl, add some more salt (this isn’t wholly necessary - it depends on your taste) & then grind in some pepper
  • Cover the bowl & vigorously shake the potatoes until the sides & all chuffed up

Roast the potatoes

  • Put the potatoes on a baking tray, space them out evenly & bake for 45 minutes (or until they’re really crispy & golden brown)

Time to serve

  • Take them out of the oven & serve immediately with all the trimmings! BOSH!
