Remove, allow them to cool and toss them in a mixture of butter, chopped garlic and chilli flakes and sprinkle some parsley on top. Roast them in the oven until they’re nice and crisp.
Easy Potato Cakes
With just 10 minutes of prep time, these potato cakes are super easy to make. You’ll need to mix together some boiled, mashed potatoes with a bit of onion powder, garlic powder, salt, black pepper powder, cream cheese, chopped chives, grated cheddar cheese, crunch Ranch flavoured potato chips and some plain flour.

Pour this mixture into buttered muffin trays, top with a generous amount of grated cheese and bake until 25 minutes or until they’re just golden brown. Serve this with a dollop of sour cream and some chopped chives on the top!
Roasted, Salty Herb Potatoes
Soft and fluffy and with the perfect balance of saltiness and freshness, these roasted potatoes taste great when paired with a roast. Making it is super easy too, you’ll need to first boil the potatoes with little water and lots of salt until they’re cooked, and then drain off the excess water while leaving the potatoes with the film of salt on top. Then you’ll need to toss them in a pulsed mixture of butter, chives, garlic, parsley and sage and bake them until they’re crisp all over. The perfect way to use potatoes this Christmas when people are getting bored with the same old roasties!
Sour Cream & Onion Potatoes
Love casseroles? This one’s packed with just the right flavours that spell comfort food! Start by boiling potatoes in some salted water, get them out and mash them roughly. Add in some melted butter, cheddar cheese, sliced green onions, sour cream, light cream, seasonings and paprika powder and mix. Place them in a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes and that’s it!
If you’re not a fan of a casserole dish that has mashed potatoes, you can slice the potatoes, fry them, get them out and layer them in the baking dish with the rest of the ingredients.
