For some families, roast potatoes are a pretty standard part of a traditional Christmas lunch.
Sure, they’re tasty but there’s turkey and ham and seafood and all of the other things that can sometimes steal the spotlight.
But NO, the humble roast potato will no longer be just a “side dish” at Christmas. Not if celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has anything to do with it.
The cook has revealed a clever Christmas hack that will not only make roast potatoes extra crispy, but will guarantee they are SO BLOODY TASTY guests may just forget to put anything else on their plate.
Sounds like quite the promise, right? I’d think so too… if it wasn’t a tip I’ve used myself every Christmas for the past three years. And it absolutely, positively works.
The first step, according to Jamie, is to part-boil the potatoes before you even think about chucking them in the oven.
Once that's done, pop them in a roasting tray with a bit of butter and oil and then let them cook away. But WE'RE NOT DONE YET. Oh no. The best is yet to come.
