Roast Potatoes

What you need

  • 500g - 1000g potatoes (500g serves 2)
  • salt, pepper
  • plain flour
  • oil - or better goose fat
Optionally, you can also use some herbs such as rosemary or oregano.
You can also sprinkle the potatoes with a bit of sugar - a recipe I picked up in Northern Germany.


  • pot 
  • oven
  • colander

How you do it

Preheat the oven and prepare the potatoes
  • peel the potatoes and quarter them
  • put them in a pot with a touch of salt and fill with water until the potatoes are covered
  • preheat the oven to 200C (electric/fan)
  • fill a baking tray with oil/goose fat so that the entire area is covered

  • put the baking tray with oil/fat into the preheated oven
  • bring the pot with the potatoes to a boil
  • boil for 2 minutes
  • drain potatoes in a colander
  • sprinkle some flour and salt over the potatoes and shake vigorously 
  • take out the baking tray and put the potatoes into it.
  • Sprinkle with salt and - possibly - herbs
  • put back into the oven

  • after 15 min take out the baking tray and turn the potatoes around
  • put back in for another 15 min and turn potatoes again
  • then roast for another 15 min
Potatoes should now be roasted and golden brown
