Servings 8


  • 5 kg Potatoes For Roasting Peeled and Chopped into Quarters
  • 100 g Goose Fat
  • Salt


  • Par boil potatoes for 5 - 10 minutes with a little salt in boiling water.
  • Line a tray with foil and put the goosefat into the oven to melt.
  • When the potatoes are ready, pop them into the tray of melted goosefat and pop them in the oven at around 200 - 220C for 10 minutes. Don't turn them over at this point or they may smush up.
  • Take them out of the oven, turn the potatoes over to coat the goosefat over all the potatoes and put them back in the oven for a further 30 minutes.
  • Take them out again, give them a shake and then return them to the oven for another 10 minutes. If you like them as crispy as we do, then just keep them in for a little longer.
