You’ll need:

  • 6 medium-sized floury/roasting or all-purpose potatoes, King Edwards may be a good choice as they have an oval shape
  • 50 gms butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Here’s what to do:

  • Pre-heat oven to 180 Degrees Celsius.
  • Cut each potato into thin slices that stop about 0.5-1cm before the base of the potato.
  • Choose an oven proof roasting dish or frying pan that fits the potatoes snugly (not tightly) and with sides that aren’t too high (3-5cm high is good).
  • Melt the butter and olive oil in the pan over the stove and stir in 1 tsp salt. Turn the potatoes in this to coat well, then arrange cut-face up. Pour in enough boiling water to reach about a quarter of the way op the potatoes.
  • Roast in oven for approx. 1 hour and 15 minutes basting with the buttery water every 15 minutes. You may need to add a little more water if it evaporates over time.
