These crispy little gems of goodness pair  well with any dinner! Or even as an any time snack 😉

 

Ingredients: 

  • 4-5 potatoes, unpeeled and halved
  • salt  and pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 springs rosemary, chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

 

Method: 

  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and then simmer until potatoes are knife tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool slightly.
  2. In a large heavy based pan, add the oil and heat over a medium high heat.
  3. Once oil is hot, add the potatoes one at a time and use a masher to squish the potato slightly, it doesn’t matter if it breaks apart a little bit, this will create extra crispy bits!
  4. Leave the potatoes for about 5-10 minutes and then season with salt and pepper. When potatoes are starting to look golden around the edges carefully flip them over. After 2 minutes or so add the rosemary and the garlic and give the pan a little swish so it distributes the herbs and garlic  and season again to your liking. Give the potatoes another 5-8 minutes and then place them onto paper towel to drain the oil.
