roast potatoes

Post  ladyarchitect on 02.12.09 21:39

I bought my halogen oven because my daughter is making Xmas dinner for 8 people for the first time in her new flat . She only has a tiny kitchen and the oven is only big enough for the turkey, so i thought i could take this along and put it in the bedroom or somewhere to roast potatoes! Has anyone tried it for this successfully -especially for such a large number of hungry people?

Hi ladyarchitect

I have a 12 litre halogen oven and I have cooked roast potatoes for 4 people using one rack. I suppose if you use the 2 racks , top and bottom, you should be able to cook for 8

I am not sure how long it will take to cook though because I cheated Embarassed

I pre cooked the potatoes in the microwave, then finished off in the halogen, but the result was superb. Best roast potatoes ever.

Did you spray oil on the potato's before placing them in the oven, I do know you must par boil before.

Yes I use olive oil, just a little bit to brush over the potatoes and put them on a tray.


We would like to hear what other people use or if they use any oil at all

I did roasties today. I used some frylite and did them on the 'frying pan' thingy that came with the accessory pack.
They came out brilliantly

Roast Potatoes

Post  wimplebum on 22.12.09 22:35

Hi folks - you'll think I am crazy (and I know its true ha ha)

I live on my own so dont usually do roasties cos they take too long. Not in the HO though. I get them about half cooked in the microwave, then using a small dish, dunk them in olive oil, then in another dish let the excess oil drain off whilst I am preparing the meat and it is cooking so that I get them out at the same time as the meat.

I found that by doing it this way they come out absolutely perfect and without excess oil on them - which for me is important as I have a weight problem!!! I find it fascinating watching them brown (sad I know).

I cooked a whole chicken dinner in mine, with roast potato's and veg.
You should par boil the roast potato's first in the micro wave they will take to long otherwise. I suggest you put them in after you turn the chicken/turkey on the top rack veg on the bottom rack wrapped in tinfoil.

I cooked roast chicken with roast potatoes and roast kohlrabi yesterday. Parboiled the potatoes and kohlrabi for 4 minutes as suggested and put them under the bottom rack and on top around the chicken after brushing them with goose fat. Cooked them for the same time as the chicken, which was 35 min. one side and 35 min. other side (for the chicken that is) and it all came out beautiful!!!

Hope this tip for roast potatoes helps. I got it from a Chef years ago. Par boil the potatoes as normal. Put them in a lidded pan and shake the pan well for a while until the potatoes go fluffy at the edges and then roast them. They come out gorgeously crispy. Not tried this in the HO yet but I see no reason for it to come out differently. Try it.
