Easy to do, lovely and crisp. I'd done double portions and they all went in one sitting :-)

Very quick and tasty (although not that crunchy despite leaving in the oven for 30 mins or so). Not as nice as normal roasties but far more interesting than plain boiled new potatoes! Will definitely be making again.

I LOVED THESE, probably because I don't normally use much salt so it was a real treat. Will definitely make them again!

Nice but just roast potatoes really so nothing special.

Loved these - I had quite large new potatoes so I boiled them for about 12mins before roasting. I also added chopped (lazy!) garlic and it tasted lovely. Definitely make again and will experiment with additional flavours and veg I think.

Umm, Am I missing something? Why don't these new pots have a veggie sign? I nearly missed them as they were filtered out of my selection.

lovely way to cook new potatoes. I used smoked paprika which was really tasty.

Nice spuds, I used old potatoes, not new ones and this worked really well when old spuds are cut into quarters. I used whole cumin though cause I quite like the little seeds, just crushed them a little. Also I added oregano the second time around for little twist. Very nice, went down very well

Went down very well. Be careful of the larger potatoes which may be harder in the centre when you try to crush them - they shoot straight out of the tray. Everyone enjoyed these.

Made these last night, hubby adored them. They are a great alternative for roast potatoes and really versatile. I think next time I will chop up a bit of garlic and maybe some herbs.... I can see us having these quite often
