Crispy baked potatoes with spring onions
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 6
- 1 ½kg small-ish Desirée potato
- 4 tbsp olive oil , plus extra for drizzling
- 6 spring onions , thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaf
- 2 tbsp salad cream
- 4 tbsp soured cream
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 140C/120C fan/gas 1. Bake the potatoes for 2 hrs until soft to the middle (alongside the pork is fine).
- STEP 2
Toss the potatoes with the olive oil, most of the spring onions, thyme and plenty of seasoning in a slightly-too-small roasting tin. Use the back of a fish slice or similar to squash the potatoes into a flat-ish compact cake. Chill until ready to finish, for up to a day.
- STEP 3
Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 (when the pork comes out). Drizzle the spuds with a little more oil and roast for 30-40 mins until golden and crisp. Mix the salad cream and soured cream, drizzle over, then scatter with remaining spring onions and more seasoning, and serve.
