English Roasted Potatoes

These potatoes are one of my favorites. Crispy outer skin, and perfectly creamy baked potato inside. These take some time to cook, but oh so good.

The tip to these potatoes is par boiling and a very hot roasting pan to start.

How to Make English Roasted Potatoes


  • 1Parboil the potatoes in salted water for about 10 minutes.
  • 2In a 375 degree F oven, heat a baking pan large enough to hold your potatoes without crowding. Just make sure it is heated well beforehand. This will help keep the potatoes from sticking to the pan.
  • 3After parboiling, drain the potatoes and let them stand for 5 minutes. Then toss the potatoes with the oil, salt, pepper and garlic.
  • 4Place the seasoned potatoes, garlic and oil to the hot baking pan. These should sizzle as they hit the pan.
  • 5Roast the potatoes for about 60-75 minutes or until they are nicely golden brown all over. turn the potatoes every 20 minutes or so.

    After the first 10 minutes, give the pan a shake to make sure the potatoes are not sticking to it.

    The roasted garlic may have to be removed before the potatoes are finished as it generally cooks faster.
  • 6Enjoy!..they are delicious.
