I cooked the potatoes whole. My husband said they were nice for being less fatty than roast potatoes usyally are. Woud definitely try again.

Really lovely.

Easy and delicious. Mine had a bit more than 20 minutes in the oven to crisp up though.

I made these tonight with the Flambéed Chicken. They were easy to make and came out beautifully - I've never been a fan of new potatoes either! My girlfriend thought they were lovely too. Will definitely make these again!

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.
