Method

  1. 1 Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Place the potatoes into a pan of salted water, bring to the boil and simmer for 2 mins exactly. Drain well and toss in a little of the oil to coat.
  2. Stir the flour, Parmesan, herbs and nutmeg together in a dish with a small pinch of salt and toss the potatoes in the mix until evenly coated. Heat a good layer of oil in a shallow, non-stick roasting tray on a hob or in the oven, then carefully add the potatoes to the tray. Turn the potatoes to coat them in the oil and roast for 40 mins, turning once. If they feel like they are sticking to the pan, don’t move them, just leave them for the full time. Roast until golden brown and crisp, and serve straight away.

Betsy-- the 200 degrees is in centigrade... it is about 400 in Fahrenheit.

My question is what is a "floury" potato?

A high starch low moisture potatoes. Check Martha Stewarts webpage.

I cannot really complain about this recipe as the potatoes did taste great and had a different taste than the usual plain ones. I did lack the use of the rosemary in the recipe as I did not have any, but unfortunately I wasn't able to taste the Parmesan cheese at all! Maybe if I used the rosemary its flavor would have come out, that is all I can say.

I made these to go with stuffed loin of pork and they were absolutely delicious. I omitted the flour because I don't think it's necessary- they go really crispy if you shake them up after boiling. Will def make again.

Made yesterday, but did not have parmesan or nutmeg handy.
Did normal size roasties, not bite sized. Really crunchy and cooking time spot on!
Had with creamy mustard and tarragon chicken.mmmmm.

Very tasty, the flavour intensifies if you can resist eating them until they've cooled down a bit.

Absolutely Delicious!! They were so tastey and easy to make! You can really tatse the Rosemary. I also added a little bit of Semolina to the flour mixture to make them a little crispier!

These are a favourite in our household, love the flavour of rosemary and the crunchiness from the cheese and flour. Fantastic with the chicken cacciatore recipe on here and some french beans with shallotts!

Parmesan/Parmigiano-Reggiano is an EU Protected Designation of Origin product and has to be made using calf rennet, so it’s definitely not suitable for vegetarians.

AMAZING!!! Made for a dinner party - my dad doesnt normally eat potatoes but cleared his plate - i did cook at 190 as was cooking a soufle at this temp at same time so i cooked for 1 hr as i had reduced the temperature. I wanted them extra crunchy and they were fab.
