Perfect Roast Potatoes

Add a review

Roast potatoes are the traditional South African accompaniment to any roast dinner and the perfect roast potato with a crispy outside and soft inside can either make or break the occasion!

Preparation time


8 large potatoes length ways, peeled and sliced in half (Floury potatoes are best for roasting)
120 ml sunflower oil
1 sachet Knorr Creamy garlic and Herb Potato Bake

Preparation method

Preheat oven to 200°C
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water then bring to the boil
Once boiling allow to cook for 5 minutes then drain – be careful not to over boil or your potatoes will turn to mash
Vigorously shake the potatoes the colander in order to roughen up the outsides slightly
In a bowl whisk together the oil and the contents of the sachet of KNORR Garlic & Herb Potato Bake
Place the potatoes flat side down in a roasting tray and pour the oil mixture over
Roast in the oven for 50 minutes to one hour turning over once half way through and basting with the oil regularly
Better For You Tips: For extra fibre leave the skin of the potatoes intact and roast an assortment of vegetables together in the same pan as your potatoes
