Simple and perfect accompanient for the cacciatore recipe on this site. No need to change it at all as you don't want any flavours that will interfere with that of the main dish.

We did this and also crisped up (except in pan will try oven next time) and we are totally taken with it. Made it with the Chicken Cacciatore which was exceptional.

I made these yesterday as a side for Mother's Day meal. The whole family raved about them so I think they may become a frequently repeated side dish!

I followed the suggestions and roasted the potatoes after having mixed them in some olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, thyme and crushed garlic. The result was delicious and the potatoes were really crunchy.

I found a variation of this a few years ago in a Rick Stein book. In his version you mix a roughly chopped bunch of watercress to the crushed potatoes. Use plenty of olive oil and seasoning and serve immediately. Goes well with fish, of course. I've used this whenever I can get my hands on some watercress and it always goes down well.

Very simple to do - i did follow oithers comments and finish them in the oven - added some mint and it was lovely! My dinner party friends thought so also.

Did you peel the potatoes ?

These were a lovely change to mash - needed lots of olive oil, and also lots of salt, but went down very well indeed.
