I love potatoes!
Perfect yellow little wonders, they taste amazing every which way you cook them, but my all time favourite is oven-roasted.
These are great as a side dish with just about anything. I served them with a good quality piece of sirloin and a red wine reduction, but honestly… Regardless of what you make as an accompaniment, you will not be disappointed.
So, the ingredients enough for 2 people are as follows:
6-7 medium-sized potatoes
1/2 teaspoon of super secret spice
1 teaspoon of salt
1 pinch of ground black pepper
1 clove of garlic
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of rapeseed oil
A few sprigs of fresh rosemary
Get your oven on to 225 degrees celsius, first of all. The start peeling and cutting your potatoes into wedges. I make 8 wedges per potato, but it all depends on the size of them. If you make your wedges too small, they might burn in the oven. And we definitely don’t want that!
In a large bowl, grate your garlic and then toss in the rest of the ingredients.
At this point, get your hands in there and mix it up!
It’s important that every potato has the exact same amount of seasoning and oil on it.
Now, spread the potatoes evenly on a tray lined with baking paper and get them in the oven for 35-45 minutes.
Every 10 minutes, open the oven and flip the potatoes over. Again, this is to make sure everything cooks the same way. No potato wedge left behind!
After the appropriate amount of time, take them out. They should look golden, bubbling and delicious when they’re done.
Now, get to eating!
