Roast potatoes

In my mind potatoes have always been the absolute comfort food,whether mashed, baked or just boiled. The following recipe is very simple and always a hit. Roast potatoes 1,5 kg peeled potatoes sea salt freshly ground black pepper 9 Tbsp olive oil Preheat the oven to 200 C. Tip the peeled potatoes into a large saucepan, cover with cold water and season well with salt. Bring to the boil and cook for about 20 minutes until tender. Pour 3 Tbsp olive oil, some sea salt and ground pepper in a big baking tray, large enough to fit the potatoes tightly in one layer. Crush each potato with a fork into two or three pieces depending on size. Season with some sea salt and freshly ground pepper and add 6 Tbsp of olive oil. Give the pan a good shake and put the potatoes in the hot oven for about 40-45 minutes until golden and crispy.
