Extra Crispy Potatoes

I recognise – it’s a huge name, proper? extra Crispy Potatoes. All of us want them. Crispy, crunchy, glass-like on the outside however fluffy within the center.

I’m not going to assert they're the “nice ever”, that’s a massive assertion. But allow’s just say that during our house, never before has there been such potatoes, and from right here on out these are the potatoes to which all others will be as compared.

Extra Crispy Potatoes

I got here throughout a recipe for roast potatoes at the website online serious Eats. They advocate adding bicarb soda to the water you boil your potatoes in, good enough. I notion it sounded a bit weird, however allow’s deliver it a go. The bicarb makes the water alkaline, which helps to interrupt down the floor of the potatoes, apparently.

Agree with me, these more crispy potatoes are severely suitable. I hosted Christmas at my residence this yr, and i served those potatoes – they're that correct.

Extra Crispy Potatoes


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary (optional)
  • 1 kg potatoes (2 lbs) approx 8 see notes
  • 4 unpeeled garlic cloves - flattened slightly (optional)
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda see notes


  1. Preheat oven to 210c ff.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil, then add bicarb soda - it will fizz a little.
  3. While the water is coming to the boil, peel your potatoes.
  4. Once boiling, add the bicarb soda - it will fizz a little. Then carefully add the potatoes, and boil for 20 mins or until very soft. 
  5. When the potatoes have about 10 minutes to go, pour the oil into a metal roasting tin - click here to see the one I use - and place in the oven to heat.
  6. When potatoes are soft, drain well then return to the pot. Give them a mix around in the pot to rough them up, if they break apart a bit that's fine too.
  7. Carefully add potatoes to now-heated oil, and turn well to coat them completely.
  8. Bake for 1 - 1 1/4 hours, tossing again about every 15 mins (add rosemary and garlic cloves with approx 15 - 30 minutes to go if using). 
  9. Discard rosemary and garlic, add salt to taste and serve immediately.
