Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat the oil and butter in a large roasting tin. Add the garlic and cook over a medium heat for 2 mins. Tip in the potatoes and toss to coat in the garlic butter and oil.
  2. Pour the stock over the potatoes and season with pepper and a little salt. Bring to the boil then transfer to the oven. Cook for 40-45 mins or until tender.
  3. Transfer to the stove-top and toss over a medium heat until most of the liquid has been absorbed and turned to a shiny glaze – about 15 mins. Tip potatoes into a warm serving dish and scatter over the thyme and serve.

A fantastic recipe that I'm sure will become a staple favourite in our house :)

SPECTACULAR!!

Made these to go with a nice blue fillet steak last night. I normally do Ramsey's red wine and shallot sauce [also super yummy] to accompany steak but left them nude as the garlic glaze on the taters was more than enough flavour. This wonderful recipe will be used again and again and again.

What a delicious way to cook a humble spud!

Lovely flavour and proved to be very popular with all who tried them.

OMG these were delicious, my hubby loved them. Like others I put in more garlic, as they were only for the two of us I did less potatoes and only about three quarters of the stock. I did not add extra salt as I thought the stock pot had enough, also added a little rosemary. Will definitely do these again. They would also be great for BBQ's.

Don't know what I did wrong but all the stock had disappeared after the 45 mins in the oven so did not get as far as the stove top. I did make half the amount and halved the amount of stock. Does the tin need to be covered?

These were lovely and the recipe worked perfectly. They were very salty though, so next time, I'll use a 'weaker' stock solution and see if that solves it.

Very nice but watch out for too much salt - I used a veggie stock cube that was far too salty - still nice though.

Goodness me..! These potatoes are simply fantastic!
I made them for two, so only using four potatoes cut in half, but in order to cover the potatoes enough I used stock as indicated in the recipe. As many others have said here, I am also a garlic addict, so I used four large cloves crushed to really get that garlicy taste. The juices reduced nicely to a proper syrup which made a great coating to the potatoes ensuring that all those fantastic flavours can be properly savoured once on the plate.

Did this with baby potatoes, although a little too salty (perhaps dependent on stock cube used) its now my family's favourite spud recipe.

A family favourite, this for any special occasion. Together with the recommended zesty salmon & cod it makes a really nice meal.
Very easy for a party; you can make it ahead as far as point 2. Does need a little more time (half an hour) to warm again.
