SPUDLICIOUS!

I don't think there are many people that are NOT roast potato fans... I mean what could there possibly be not to like! I am a potato fan through and through, no matter HOW you serve it. And despite the fact that I do my best to eat as little carbs as possible these days... I do cheat every now and then.

As great as the traditional roast potato is, I also really enjoy making these two "roast potato variations" too - and both are just as easy to make.

The first being...

HASSELBACK POTATOES


......

For these you want nice LARGE potatoes if possible. and when raw you make several slices across the potato being careful NOT to cut through the bottom. Season with a little, salt, potato spice, olive oil, butter and whatever else takes your fancy (perhaps garlic and parsley etc.) and pop in the oven for approx. one hour at 180 degrees Celsius.

The second being

SMASHED ROAST POTATOES


......

I am a huge fan of these and so is every other roast potato lover. You boil whole, unpeeled potatoes (but be sure not to overcook them), then allow them to cool. Once cooled, place them on a greased roasting tray and literally squish them flat with your palm and then season them with anything similar to the above mentioned seasonings... and pop them in the oven for approx. 45 - 60 min.

remove them from the oven and VOILA!
Pure, crispy, golden deliciousness!!!

The rugged, cracked skin and exposed inners of this style of roast potato make them particularly crispy - which as we all know is most peoples favourite!

I find that both of these styles are quite fun variations to the standard roast potato and also add a great aesthetic quality to your plate :)

Enjoy!

Never seen or tried the second idea, something new to try sometime. My family still prefer the roast potatoes skinned then put in around the meat when roasting, personally I prefer them in their jackets.

I can't believe I haven't tried either of these @jaynie, but I certainly will this week. I'm just sitting here salivating now, lol I reallllllly love potatoes and try to stay away as much as possible. I'm with you on the carb thing but these are one weakness, lol Definite comfort food I would say! Excellent ideas! Merry Christmas to you and your family. Blessings!
