Crispy Crunchy Potato Bites

"From super food magazine - I've got these ready to go in the oven at the moment though I scaled back for 4 serves and used 4 garlic cloves instead of 2 since they were very small otherwise made as per recipe. They did recommend desiree potatoes but I used carisma's (a low GI potato). Please note that after making tonight in a non-forced fan oven at 200C it took me 60 minutes to get my potatoes nicely browned though not crisp but that is Carisma potatoes, very hard to get them crisp in this sort of cooking though I have done with shallow frying them as long as they are cut as a very small dice."

  1. We loved this recipe. The potatoes were perfection. Crisp, crunchy and tender on the inside. They were a lovely golden brown. I didn't use fresh rosemary or thyme as I was out. I subbed with ground rosemary and dried thyme, they worked great in this recipe. Thank you for sharing another lovely recipe Pat. Made for Went to Market Tag game.
  2. This potato dish is one that I'll be making over and over again. It was well enjoyed by all in the family. I didn't use lemon thyme as it's nowhere to be found around here unless you grow it yourself. I used regular thyme and grated lemon rind which worked out very well, though I'm curious on how lemon thyme would have tasted. Made it for Everyday is a Holiday tag game. Thank you I'mPat for another great recipe.
  3. Aussie Swap #82: These potatoes were divine!! Easy to prepare and a good accompaniment with any meal!!


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
