My husband loved these and has requested them again so they must be good! Next time I make them though I am going to add the onion after about 10 minutes as it was very tasty but a little too crisp for my liking.

Very simple, but great recipe. Use a few sprigs of Rosemary and this will really set the dish off.

I also cooked the potatoes quite a bit longer, and had to use miscellaneous no-name potatoes. We loved the flavour, but found it still a bit greasy...that said, these will be back often by popular request.

Love these!
I personally used fry lite instead of the olive oil, as too adapt them to fit in with the Slimming World plan I follow.
A now, firm family favourite

I use king edwards cause I think they make the best chips.

Delicious! Took longer to cook the chips than he reckons though.

This were really nice. I couldn't get desiree so used normal baking potatoes. Still turned out great although I did have to roast them for 10 minutes more to give them that golden brown colour and crispness.

Great chips! Couldn't get any desiree potatoes but tried Cyprus Cara potatoes which were delicious. Would def recommend!
