An easy and very versatile side dish, a good alternative to standard roast potatoes.

  • 350g (6 medium sized) potatoes
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • generous knob of butter (melted)
  • 2tsp dried parsley
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • salt and pepper


    1. Place large baking tray in oven and preheat to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
    2. Peel and dice potatoes into half inch/1cm cubes. Meanwhile melt butter and stir in parsley.
    3. Heat oil in large frying pan. Over a moderate heat, add cubed potatoes and cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent potatoes browning or sticking to the pan.
    4. Remove rosemary leaves from tough stalks and finely chop. Transfer potatoes to baking tray. Mix parsley butter in with the potatoes and sprinkle with rosemary and season.
    5. Roast for 30 mins, shaking halfway to prevent sticking.

Have tried to make parmentier potatoes before but they have never been very successful as the coating has ended up in the pan rather than on the potatoes! This is a lovely recipe which works really well, the only change I make is to add crushed garlic to the melted butter with the parsley.

Great alternative potato side dish. Followed the recipe and the result was perfect. I served these with salmon and wilted spinach. I will happily make again. I prepared my raw potatoes a little while in advance, so placed them in water until needed.

I've made these a few times now, they are so easy to make and super tasty. I also left the skin on the potatoes, fried with crushed garlic, blitzed the herbs in a processor and added the herbs and butter to the pan just before transferring to the baking tray.

Made this with skins left on the potatoes. The only difference I made was adding pressed garlic to the melted butter. All the other steps I followed and the end result was amazing. Now a firm favourite.

Had no rosemary so used dried Italian seasoning instead. Also added sliced shallots after 10mins of roasting. It was very very good.

Tried this recipe with rosemary and garlic - awful! (sorry couldn't resist!)

I did change the ingredients because I did not have any parsley. I don't think this made any difference as I used garlic and they were so delicious. No, no special occasion as such, but they could easily be used for a smart dinner party dish.

I looked for this recipe after buying these potatoes from M & S. I didn't have any parsley so tried the rosemary and garlic version. Fantastic - easy, so tasty and will definitely be cooking these regularly. Thanks!!!!
