At family meals my Great Grandmother and now my Grandmother would make these FABULOUS roasted potatoes. So crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They have told me their secret, which I will not reveal. But I think I can do something almost as good with this recipe. When I say almost as good, well they’re still pretty darn delicious, but it’s just not the potatoes that Grandmothers make.
Now you remember the goose fat that we kept from the Chirstmas Goose recipe? Well I hope you kept that golden delicious marvel of nature in your freezer for just an occasion such as this. Tossing your potatoes in your favourite herbs and then roasting them in the goose fat makes for incredibly crispy and flavourful potatoes that go perfectly with your favourite feast.
*This recipe is fantastic. Just toss it on the grill with your meat and let it go. As long as you’re doing a grill bake or a plank, these will come out golden brown and crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
Sometimes simple is the best, and these are super simple. An homage to the delicious roasted potatoes that my Grandmothers make. The goose fat really adds a nearly creamy quality to the flavour. In fact, you could pretty much get away without seasoning the potatoes, except for a little bit of salt to finish them off.
