Roast Potatoes

This is one of Sid’s absolute favs. Actually, give him anything with oodles and oodles of butter, fresh pepper, cheese, etc and he’ll drool bucketfuls on the kitchen floor.

If you try this recipe, don’t go overboard with the butter unless, of course, you are serving it to Sid.

1. Wash baby potatoes and pierce them with a fork. Dry with a kitchen napkin.

2. Tear a large sheet of aluminum foil and fold it into half to give double thickness. Place the potatoes in the middle of the foil.

3. Add 5 large dollops of butter, salt, freshly ground pepper and some chopped coriander. Bring up the sides and fold or scrunch the foil together to seal.

4. Cook in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the baby potatoes are tender. You can also make the same in a microwave. Simply put the potatoes in a micro-safe dish, cover and cook for about 7-8 mins or till tender.

5. Serve hot as a side dish or snack.
