Crispy roast new tatties

By 11th June 2020One Comment

We don’t usually think of roasting new potatoes, but this version is even more delicious than ordinary roast potatoes or chips!

New Potatoes…preferably small
Olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

1. Scrub potatoes and boil whole until cooked through (about 15 minutes).
2. Pre-heat oven to 180c/350F.
3. Drain potatoes and leave to cool for 5 minutes.
4. Spread potatoes out in an oven tray and press down on them with a fork to flatten slightly.
5. Dot with small cubes of butter and drizzle over a smattering of olive oil. Add salt and pepper.
6. Roast in oven for 30 minutes.
7. Serve immediately as part of a meal.



I grew up on a farm in the NE of Scotland so have always had a close affinity to land and growing my own food. As a family we ate only what was in season and preserved fruit and vegetables if there was a glut. I am still passionate about cutting air miles on the food I eat. I’m lucky to live close to the Tayport Community Garden and pop in regularly for advice and produce.
