Classic roast

Classic roast

​Originally a UK Classic, roast is now a favorite throughout Europe. The ultimate comfort food. Crispy from the outside and fluffy on the inside. Here's how to prepare a classic roast potato.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Portion size: approx. 200 g

​Ingredients:

  • 200 g quarters per serving
  • 10 ml fat per serving (olive oil, butter or goose fat)
  • pinch of salt

Method

Preheat the oven to 200-210°C. Roughen the potatoes in the bag or in a colander to chuff up the edges of the potato for a crispy bite. Mix the potatoes with the fat and salt  in a baking tray. To distribute the oil evenly  toss them around until all the potato quarters are covered. Spread them out  to a single layer of potatoes. Place in the pre-heated oven and turn after 7-10 minutes. Take them out after 15 minutes or when golden and crunchy.

Tips:

  • Add crushed garlic cloves on the oven tray for a subtle garlic taste
  • use goose fat for extra crispy exterior
  • add a bit of (herb flavored) vinegar to the oil for a subtle tang and extra flavor.
