Delicious! Par-boiled for 10 mins and then in a 200C oven for 1 hour, with rosemary and garlic. Absolutely fab!

Made it for the first time tonight. So easy and yet soooooo delicious! I added some grated cheddar and sour cream. Definitely will do it again.

Love this recipe, have it at least once a week. My other half would have it every day given the option.

Made loads of times - really bash them to get burnt bits which we all fight for!

I steamed my potatoes for 10 minutes, and had a similar experience to some others - the potatoes were still too hard to crush and had a tendency to fly across the worktop!

I felt they would need a little longer cooking time, so I put them in the oven for 15 minutes, then tried to crush them - and they looked just like the picture.

I roasted for a further 25 minutes and they were perfect - crisp and tasty on the outside and fluffy inside.

I didn't use as much oil as suggested, just a generous drizzle and it was fine.

I make these all the time, but miss out the paprika. I can't seem to get it right - ends up too spicy!

Cooked to go with veal recipe. Careful when using masher that they do not totally disintegrate! Very nice but needed a lot more baking than 20mins (I doubled the time) - added unpeeled cloves of garlic instead of paprike and squeezed them out when serving - scrummy to eat with very close friends!!

I cooked the potatoes whole. My husband said they were nice for being less fatty than roast potatoes usyally are. Woud definitely try again.

Easy and delicious. Mine had a bit more than 20 minutes in the oven to crisp up though.

I made these tonight with the Flambéed Chicken. They were easy to make and came out beautifully - I've never been a fan of new potatoes either! My girlfriend thought they were lovely too.

Will definitely make these again!
