Roast Potatoes, Bowl, Fork - February 24th 2021, 10:44 AM

We used to snarf popcorn during TV evenings. Until Tommy brought in bowls of roast potatoes. Suddenly, popcorn unexpectedly got boring!

Normally we roast taters in goose fat, as in the BBC Good Food link as shown: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/...roast-potatoes which makes them extra crispy with a deep, deep tastiness that only goose fat combined with high oven temperatures can make. But our happy little soul said she found a recipe for roast taters using Dijon mustard.

I thought they had a certain taste about them that was so appealing. I asked for the recipe - Pocket: 3-Ingredient Roasted Dijon Potatoes

don't they look amazing?
(see attachment)

Healthier, and were very very good. (Note the 'were') But the ones I prefer are always done in goose fat. Specially for Christmas or Thanksgiving, depending on your parents' wishes.

If you have a recipe - even for stovies and bacon (yummy bacon!) do please share it.

Those look so yummy! Some of my household aren't fans of mustard so I don't think I'll get the chance to make these for dinner, but I'm going to keep this recipe for when lockdown is over and I can make them for friends instead! Thanks for sharing

I definitely recommend potatoes are best roasted in goose fat. It can be bought reasonably cheaply by the jar, and is a must when roasting chicken or turkey. Olive oil has always been the preferred fat in Provence, but it doesn't impart anywhere near the same flavour as goose fat.

Incidentally, regarding beef, that is best roasted in beef dripping, but the browned bits that have set on the bottom of the dripping bowl are absolutely delicious scooped out and spread on toast! It's another comfort food.

I admit, I do enjoy a good roast potato. I love seasoning them with a little rosemary and having a dip nearby. Especially on a cold day tucked up watching a film.
