    Then sprinkle flour over the potatoes and shake to a tray with a generous lug of oil on it in the oven until the oil gets really hot.Add the butter and return to the oven for around 30 seconds.
  • STEP 6
    Remove the tray from the oven and put the potatoes in it, turning to coat them in the oil and butter mixture.

    Put the potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes or until the potatoes are crisp on the outside but fluffy and delicious on the inside.Serve as a side with Azara's Roast chicken with a twist for a fabulous Sunday roast.
