How to make the best Roast Potatoes

potato, How to make the best Roast Potatoes

For this blog we have a delicious Roast Potato recipe using our Roast Potato Oil from the brand new Roast Range! The Roast Potato Oil is Cotswold Rapeseed Oil infused with Rosemary, Garlic and Smoke. The Oil is perfect for creating the best roast potatoes ever, for your year round roasts!. I know in my family there is always a competition of who makes the best ‘roasties’ so now with this recipe you can be sure you’ll beat all the competition.


  • Maris Piper Potatoes (approx 3kg will feed 8 people plus extras!!!)
  • Our Roast Potato Oil
  • British Sea Salt


  1. Peel potatoes and cut into quarters (or whatever size you prefer)
  2. Leave in water to rinse
  3. Change the water, add potatoes and a good lot of salt (as salty as the sea!!)
  4. Bring to the boil then cook on a medium heat for 15 mins
  5. Take off heat, drain and gently remove from the pan
  6. Season with salt all over and ruffle gently
  7. Leave to steam on the side for 30 mins (this is key)
  8. Heat oven to 200◦c
  9. Whilst the potatoes steam add oil to a roasting tray and pop into the oven
  10. Then put the tray on the stove and put on a high heat. When the oil is almost smoking hot, carefully add the potatoes
  11. Cook on one side for a minute, then turn so all of the potato has been coated in the hot oil
  12. Then straight into the hot oven
  13. After 25 mins place back on the hot stove whilst you turn the potatoes
  14. Back in the oven for another 25 mins or so until golden and crispy all over
  15. Drain on kitchen paper, season and leave in the oven until ready to serve

About the NEW Roasts range:

The new range was created with the idea to liven up the classic Roast dinner trimmings. For example those roast potatoes, pigs in blankets and your ultimate roast dinner meats. Within this range we have things like ‘Pigs in Blankets Dust’, ‘Roast Ham Glaze’ and even a ‘Brussels Sprout Dust‘!.

The entire new range was intended to wow your dinner guests for the whole year round… You could use the ‘Roast Potato Oil’ for your Sunday dinner, or the ‘Pigs in Blankets Dust’ for dinner parties. The new range really is pretty spectacular, don’t you think?
