How to make perfectly crisp roast potatoes 🀀🍟
⁣
Here’s a few tips we’ve summarised to get your oven baked potatoes looking crispy & golden but keeping soft, cloud-like potato within. πŸ™πŸΌ ⁣
⁣
πŸ’‘Add salt AFTER cooking - this keeps the moisture of the potato that’s not on the surface nice and soft. ⁣
⁣
πŸ’‘πŸ’§ Soak in water before cooking - this removes excess potato starch, which prevents potatoes from sticking together and helps achieve maximum crispness. ⁣
⁣
πŸ’‘β™¨οΈ Release steam - during cooking every 5-10 mins open the oven door to release steam slightly. This keeps the heat dry for an ultimate fry up. ⁣
⁣
πŸ’‘βš οΈ Not too much oil - this technique is like the ‘Goldilocks’ of roasting. Not too much, not too little - you want just enough to coat each potato chip. ⁣
⁣
πŸ’‘πŸ˜Œ Once done let the potatoes rest in the oven turned off and door wedged open - it’s the finishing touch to drying out the outside edges for a major crunch factor. ⁣
⁣
We wouldn’t be surprised if you just went to preheat your oven after looking at these wedges... πŸ‘€πŸ˜‹ we can’t get enough of them!
