How to make Garlic and Rosemary Hassleback Potatoes

October 12, 2014

Potatoes are a great accompaniment to a meal, whether they are chipped, mashed or roasted. The trouble with potatoes is that we tend to get into a little rut with them, always having chips with steak, mash with sausages and roast potatoes with a roast dinner. However, why not try something a little different with your dinner tonight… try adding Garlic and Rosemary Hassleback Potatoes.

A potato dish is only as good as the potatoes you buy so we always opt for Maris Piper potatoes as they are so versatile as well as tasting delicious.

Making Garlic and Rosemary Hassleback Potatoes are so simple to do and can be easily changed to incorporate different flavourings, you’ll wonder why you haven’t made them before.

    We always have these for Christmas, but never with rosemary, we have a gigantic rosemary bush in the garden so may have to try this, they look so perfectly done and fry light sounds like a healthier option!
