Ingredients . . .

  • 1kg Maris Piper potatoes
  • 80g duck or goose fat
  • 2 tsp flour
  • 160g Applewood® Slices
  • A sprinkle of paprika, parsley and sea salt to serve


Method . . .

  • Place the fat in a big roasting tin and heat in the oven at 200C/gas 6.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into even pieces – around three or four depending on the size of the potato.
  • Boil the potatoes in a large pan for ten minutes.
  • Drain the potatoes in a colander and leave them to cool for ten minutes.
  • Shake the potatoes in the colander until fluffy.
  • Sprinkle the potatoes with the flour.
  • Carefully add the potatoes to the roasting tin and coat them in the oil.
  • Cook for 45 minutes – turn them over every ten minutes to ensure they all cook evenly.
  • Once the potatoes are crunchy and golden, take them out of the tin and place them in an oven proof dish.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt, and cover the potatoes with the slices. Place in the oven for 5 minutes until the cheese has melted.
  • Take them out of the oven and sprinkle with paprika and parsley. Enjoy with your favourite dip!
