Crispy rosemary potatoes

Serves: 4p as a side Prep: 5m Cook: 70m


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 600g waxy potatoes, peeled and cut into 2.5cm cubes
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary or thyme, leaves picked
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 cloves of garlic, skin on and crushed whole


Make sure the stirrer attachment is in place in the pan, then set the temperature to 250°C.

Once the pan has heated up, add the olive oil and potatoes

In a pestle and mortar, bash the rosemary or thyme leaves with a pinch of salt, then add to the pan with the crushed garlic cloves and a pinch of pepper

Set the timer for 70 minutes so the potatoes get all golden and crispy.

Spoon onto a serving plate and enjoy with roast beef or chicken and lots of gorgeous seasonal veg.

Jamie Oliver’s tip

Try adding some peeled wedges of red onion or halved chestnut mushrooms halfway through cooking to mix things up a bit. You can also try using different woody herbs, or even crumble in a dried red chilli if you want to add a bit of a kick.
