• Floury potatoes
  • Garlic infused olive oil (or plain olive oil if you don't like garlic)
  • Rosemary (or other favorite herb)


Preheat oven to fairly hot. Peel and cube potatoes into 1.5 inch cubes. Place into a pot of boiling water and cook for about 10 mins (the sides of the cube should be tender, but the potato piece should still hold its shape). Drain the water from the pot, and then add in enough oil to dress your potato shapes. Here you can also add some chopped herns if you wish. Put the lid on the pot and then shake the pot vigorously for a minute (the point of this is to fluff up the edges of your potatoes so that they will crisp up even more in the oven). Place fluffy potatoes in baking tray and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Crisp in oven for 10 - 15 minutes.
