  • 1kg small potatoes
  • 4 shallots
  • 8 garlic cloves, crushed with skin on
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6.

  2. Wash the potatoes. Leave the skin on and cut each in half. Peel and halve the shallots.

  3. Place the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for fifteen minutes or until the potatoes are soft (a sharp knife should pass straight through).

  4. Put the vegetable oil in a large baking tray and place in the preheated oven.

  5. Turn off the hob and drain the potatoes. Return them to the saucepan with all the other ingredients. Season generously.

  6. Put a tight fitting lid onto the saucepan. Making sure you hold the lid down tightly, vigorously shake, bashing all the ingredients together and slightly crumbling the potatoes.

  7. Spoon the contents into the baking tray and return to the oven to cook for thirty minutes, or until the potatoes are crispy and brown.
