Roast Potatos

Post  wimplebum on 14.03.10 12:49

Hi Dakota,

When I do Roast potatoes I always part cook in the microwave first - otherwise will take ages in the HO. If you cook the potatoes about half the time you would normally cook them in the microwave (for a single person, enough potatoes would normally be about 4 minutes), then brush with oil - or spray. Some folks here prefer spray oil as you dont use so much of it.

Put into the halogen oven for about 20 minutes on 180-200C that usually does mine and they are really good that way.

Hope that helps.

I know it is cheating !!! But I can assure you that Aunt Bessies Roast Potatoes and Parsnips cook perfectly in the HO at high temperature for 20 mins. from frozen. Delicious.

Hi Glenys

It's not cheating - it's just being practical when we're pushed for time.
Aunt Bessies Yorkshire Puddings turn out great too. sunny

Rosted Potatoes

Post  choff on 11.01.11 20:09

I tried to cook whole potatoes last night and the chicken was done before them. I guess I should of started them before the chicken at a higher temperature. I'm still learning how to adjust time/temp.

Hi Choff

Members have had more success by cooking the potatoes halfway first by boiling or microwaving. Very Happy

Hi choff potatoes generally take about 1hr to roast @ 200c but size will make a difference

After boiling the potatoes and pouring off the water give them a good shake in the pan to roughen the edges before roasting

Not a problem as you could have left the chicken resting while the potatoes finished, all joints should be left to rest this makes carving easier.
