Mustard Roast Potatoes with Bacon Bits Recipe
I have never met a person who doesn’t love the humble roast potato. Crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, they’re a delicious dinner staple in millions of homes around the world. And our home is no different! However, when it comes to roast totties, ever now and then I like to jazz them up a little. One of my favourite variations is my mustard roast potatoes.
With my mustard roast potatoes, you get the golden crunch of roasted potato, plus the tang of wholegrain mustard. And even better, it takes very little effort to add these to your basic roast tottie recipe!
Although mustard may not sound suited to a Sunday roast, I honestly believe roasted potatoes can be had any time of the day, week or year. These mustard-crusted roast totties with bacon bits tend to get served alongside Schnitzel in my home – or sausages!
I’ve actually spent a lot of time perfecting my roast tottie recipe. Growing up, our roast potatoes were dry, hard and flavourless. Hardly inspiring. So many years ago I decided to spend the time really working on my roast totties in order to perfect them. And once you perfect your potatoes, you’ll find yourself wanting to experiment!
The perfect roast totties are easier than you think. You simply need to boil your potatoes first, make sure you toss them through some very hot oil, and then transfer them to a very hot oven tray. E voila! That will give you perfectly roasted potatoes. And now you can start experimenting with flavours, like mustard.
I can’t think of anything more comforting – or delicious!
