Roast potatoes are a quintessential part of a Sunday roast – and if you’re cooking one up today, you’re being warned to stop making some rookie errors.
A Sunday roast and classic, traditional dinner features not only crispy roast potatoes, but lashings of gravy, thick pieces of meat, roasted vegetables and a Yorkshire pudding to boot.
But whether you’re having roast beef, pork, chicken or lamb today, we have an idea on how to spice up your roast potatoes – or, rather, a home cook does.
Justin Taylor, aged 40, shared a recipe on Facebook which has taken the social media platform by storm, and shows the mistakes we’ve been making when it comes to making roast potatoes.
His trick to get the perfect spuds has gone down a storm with social media users, and Facebook users have been sent into a frenzy by his handy guide.
The trick to get the perfect roasties is to use honey and mustard, according to our sister title the Daily Star, with Justin captioning the post: “Honey and mustard roast potatoes. Then Nutella bricks for dessert.”
The ingredients could not be more simple – all you need is peeled and chopped white potatoes (however many you desire), two teaspoons of Colman’s English mustard, four teaspoons of squeeze honey, black pepper and salt to taste.
Then, grind the pepper into a bowl and then add the mustard – blend them together. Then, add the honey to the bowl. Pre-heat a roasting tray with oil and two tablespoons of butter and salt.
Add the potatoes to the tray and baste with the honey mustard mixture. Cook until 20 minutes before they’re ready and baste again. Continue to baste every five minutes to keep them crisp.
