My mother made these, and boy, are they ever good. So easy to fix, too.


  1. Parboil potatoes in salted water until slightly soft, about 7-10 minutes. Don't let them get too soft.
  2. Spray with Pam, or mix with a little oil.
  3. Place around the beef or pork roast about one hour before serving dinner.
  4. After 30 minutes, turn the potatoes once, if you want them browned on both sides (optional).

Yum, I am making these to go into my recipe Roasted Chicken Pot Pie and becuase I had some small potatoes at the bottom of my bucket that no one else could be bothered to peel and liked the idea of roasting them. I did these with a chicken I was roasting Marie's Roast Chicken and they were full of flavour. Indeed I needed to put away enough for the pie before DH and nibbled too many LOL. Please see my rating system: a very nice easy roast potatoe recipe that I will make again :) Thanks!
