  • Roasting potatoes - 1 kg
  • Salt, plus extra to season - 1 Tbsp
  • Olive oil - 1/4 cup
  • Fresh thyme - 2 Tbsp
  • Sage leaves - 2 Tbsp
  • Italian parsley - 2 Tbsp
  • Sunflower oil - 1/2-1 cup


  1. Heat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  2. Fill a large saucepan with water and salt, then boil potatoes. Drain and allow potatoes to cool enough to handle. Using your palm, squash each potato until sides crack and they flatten a little.

  3. Arrange them on the baking tray. Season well with salt and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 35-45 minutes, or until crispy and golden.

  4. Meanwhile, to fry the herbs, in a small saucepan heat the sunflower oil. Carefully add herbs to the oil and fry until crispy.

  5. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon. Using a paper towel, pat dry and season with salt. Set aside until required.

  6. Serve potatoes, topped with the crispy fried herbs.

Tip: After frying herbs, keep them in an airtight container. The potatoes can be cooked a day before and reheated for 12-15 minutes on 200°C (180°C fan-forced) before serving.
