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

These are lovely, have made them a couple of times now, but also added some cooked green beans and then added the olive oil and pepper etc over the whole lot before putting in the oven, yum :o)

These were delicious and ridiculously easy. My teenage daughter commented that she isn't normally keen on new potatoes (unless they are cold and sitting in the fridge!) but thought these were 'fab' and she wished there were more. We all enjoyed them.

This looks absolutely delicious, however I'm not entirely sure how this recipe is low-fat?! If it is I would be a very happy lady :)

Extremely easy yet impressive & very tasty. Look a bit like hassleback potates if you have a crinkle edged masher!
