This is my last post for the year and for the holidays, I’ll be taking January off for some beach time with the family, yippee. Thanks for all your comments, suggestions and blog loving all year long.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all x

I thought I’d share this very special way of getting the ultimate crispy roast potatoes, just in time for Xmas. Prepare to drool..

 

You'll Need
  • 1 kg desiree or good roasting potatoes
  • 2 tbs semolina
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • truffle salt (available from gourmet food stores)
Method

Pre heat oven to 200C.

Peel the potatoes, cut them in half and then half again. Place them in a large saucepan and cover with cold water.

Bring the potatoes to the boil and then drain them in a sieve. Add them back to the saucepan, sprinkle with semolina and bash them around the pot to rough up the edges a little.
Pour the oil into a large heavy based roasting pan and allow the oil to heat up for 10 minutes or so. (NOTE: I know this seems like a lot of oil, but it is crucial – trust me)
Carefully place the potatoes in the hot oil and roast for 20-30 minutes, turning them over half way through. Cook until golden brown. Drain the potatoes quickly on paper towel and sprinkle with truffle salt and serve.

  1. They look beautifully crisp. The hint of truffle must be lovely, too.

    These look delicious! I have been doing my roast potatoes in duck fat but will definately try these. I'm wondering – if I can't find the truffle salt whether to add a tablespoon of truffle oil (which I have) to the olive for the flavour and then just sea salt it?
    Have a wonderful Christmas, I look forward to more delish blogs in the New Year.

    Mim – not sure that would work as the salt will become to moist. No harm in trying though :)

    Mim – sorry misread your comment .. need a coffee. That would work just fine x

  5. Yum! Love the way truffle salt really lifts the flavour of eggs, pasta and potatoes. Love this method making them really crispy with the semolina.
