Roast Potatoes

Simon does a killer roast potato but there is a hazard warning. He’s not shy of oil. 

Roast Potatoes

Simon Leatham


  • 1 kg King Edward potatoes because they are nice and floury, peeled and cut to even sizes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 180º C (ST: I leave the roasting tray in the oven to preheat that as well)
  • Boil the potatoes for 18 minutes until the potatoes start to disintegrate.
  • Pour off water (ST: I leave to cool a bit as well)
  • Transfer potatoes to the roasting tray
  • Pour oil over the potatoes
  • Roast for 50-60 minutes at 180º C, turning, until crispy all over (make sure it is a big pan)
