Tip in the potatoes, season, and scatter over the oregano. Give the potatoes a good toss so they’re coated, then roast on the bottom shelf of the oven for 45 mins-1 hr until golden and tender.

This has become a firm favourite all year round and we prefer the new potato to the roast potato version. Try it with good quality pork chipolatas (done on the Barbie in the summer) and home-made cauliflower cheese for a real fix of comfort food. Both Sarah Cook and John Torode's cauli cheese recipes are fab and can be found on this website.
