Love these! Went perfectly with the vegetable and bean chilli we had them with!

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!!
