This Roasted Potatoes with Sage & Garlic recipe is truly the queen of them all, as you can see, the crust on top is shining and crispy but when you take a bite they are beautifully soft inside. It’s nice to have a different approach to standard veg on your table from time to time, we can easily get bored looking at the same food over and over – and these roasties are certainly different from the usual potatoes that we have on our table. I absolutely love potatoes, in fact that is one of my weaknesses when it comes to dieting. I do try my best to leave them alone, but sometimes we just have to turn a blind eye to the diet when there is something as lovely as this to try!

Sometimes I do this in the summer in the garden, or even in my open fire in my lounge. We usually grow lots in our garden here, and it reminds me of the old days when I used to love to go and pick them for my Dad as he was in charge of the garden.
