Top class roasties

Post  shuffler on 22.01.11 6:23

I know this has been covered many times but I thought I would throw in my two pennies worth.

For top class roasties you need Maris Piper potatoes or if unavailable then use King Edwards. Peel and cut them medium size and plunge into boiling water for 8 minutes. Next drain them and plunge into ice cold water drain them again. In a saucepan pour in enough olive oil (about a tablespoon and a half)add the potatoes and with the lid on give them a good shaking to fluff up the outside which in turn will soak up the oil.

Cook in the HO at 190c - 200c for around 35 to 45 minutes and you should have golden crispy potatoes on the outside and nice moist potato on the inside.

Try adding some herbs at the shaking stage for a bit of variety.

I'm about to use my oven for the first time and going to do roast potatoes. Have read the many very helpful comments/recipes but not sure if I should cook them on the top or bottom shelf. Advice much appreciated.

Incidentally have bought my HO to use instead of my much loved but-very-expensive-to-get-roasting-heat Rayburn. With the price of oil I can't afford to use an hour's worth of fuel just to get the Rayburn to 200C. And that's before I've even started cooking!

Hi Shuffler

A belated thank you, sorry. Embarassed
These were great. I don't know why the cold water works but it does. I added them to the recipe A-Z so everyone can easily find them.

thank you

Further to reply re:- top class roasties - can you please tell me if the potatoes are placed on a tray/dish in the bottom of the oven, or is a dish placed on a low or high rack.?
Not used by new halogen oven yet, so really in need of lots of advice.
Thanks.

you can use the tray that came with the oven or a roasting /baking tin that fits inside your oven.

Place it on the bottom rack. You should always leave enough space all around your food for the hot air to circulate.

The best way to learn and get all the useful advice from more experienced members is to read the previous posts.

Thanks for the advice on roast potatoes - I am just about to try it! So far only cooked a chicken in our new Halogen & one of our granddaughters said that Granny makes the best chicken - she loved the crispy butter skin!
Prob speak to you guys on the forum on a regular basis! Need to learn more than the book with the oven can tell us!

Hi all, just a suggestion, I agree with the directions in the original post but would really suggest you cook the spuds in the HO for longer at a lower temp. One hour at 160 degrees works best IMHO. This way you you get a crisper outside to the potato and the inside has longer to cook and soften up, and there's also no darkening of the outer crust of the roast potato which can sometimes introduce a slight bitter flavour.

Good things come to those who wait.

I am a newbie at cooking so I am not sure if what I did was roasting potatoes, lol.

I cooked chicken on the top rack (I marinated the chicken with soy sauce, red wine vinegar and dried oregano) and on the bottom rack, I put pieces of potatoes (cut in half). I cooked the chicken and potato for 20 minutes at 150 degrees celcius (300F), turned the chicken and cooked for another 5 minutes at 175 degrees celcius (about 350F). My potatoes turned out really crispy on the outside and really moist on the inside. My chicken was a lovely golden brown and the skin was crispy. Smile
