Roast Potatoes

Something on the side, you can be proud of.

This dish is my go-to side dish for when I have guests coming over, it's easy to make, delicious and filling (because there is nothing worst than leaving hungry after a dinner party.)

This is one of those dishes that you can prep and then let the magic happen in the oven while you work on the rest of your menu. They pair beautifully with a tender piece of beef or chicken and they hit the spot every time. Crunchy on the outside with a rosemary, salt crunch and soft gems on the inside these guys put a smile on our faces time and time again.

These golden potatoes are also the perfect addition to any roast dinner as the perfect side and are vegetarian friendly so everyone can enjoy, these cuties.

They are best served hot out of the oven, so pop these in 40 mins before the meal for the full oooo-ahhhhh effect as you unveil your easy, but deliciously impressive roast potatoes.

If you are running low on fresh herbs, head over to your pantry for any dried oregano, thyme, or paprika. They will taste just as good, and it's all about making them your signature potatoes so don't be afraid to experiment.
