My New Favourite Way To Cook Potatoes! | Easy Fondant Potatoes Recipe
Fondant potatoes are something really special, with a fluffy, soft interior, crisp top and a crunchy, slightly chewy base that’s packed with flavour from the stock, butter and garlic.
They really are eyeball-rollingly delicious!
Perfect for that extra special date-night dinner, a family Sunday roast or as a dish that everyone will be fighting over on the Christmas dinner table.
And you know what? I think they’re actually simpler to make than regular roasties.
