Recipe Tips

  • You can add herbs in with the potatoes for a bit of extra flavor. Something like rosemary or thyme will work perfectly.
  • Rubbing the potatoes with some garlic and onion powder is an excellent way of adding flavor.
  • The cooking oil is not essential, but it helps get the potato crisp. You can use a different oil or fat. For example, bacon fat or duck fat will work great.
  • It is essential that you do not peel the potatoes. Instead, wash the potatoes, so they do not have any dirt left on them.
