Cheesy roast potatoes

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

1
Par boil the potatoes in sea salt and water for 5-10 minutes depending on their size. Strain them through a colander and allow to steam for 3-4 minutes. Shake them around a bit to rustle up the edges.
2
To prepare your roasting tray, melt the goose fat on the tray over a medium heat. Break up the bulb of smoked garlic and add it to the tray.
3
Spread the potatoes evenly and don’t overcrowd the tray. Place into a hot oven preheated to 200C for 45 mins-1 hour or until golden and crisp.
4
Halfway through the cooking process remove them from the oven and give them a really light squash with a spoon or potato masher.
5
Once cooked sprinkle over the grated cheese. Serve and enjoy! Bonus: This is a dish that can be made all year round, not just for Christmas.

The ultimate indulgent potatoes for Christmas. The cheese is totally optional, but who doesn’t like cheese!

Scallops, black pudding and butternut squash
Serves 1
Steak and burnt onion
Serves 1

I eat steak at least once a week. I love all the different cuts there are to choose from. I highly recommend going to your butcher for steak, as they can really help you choose the best cuts. The cooking guide provided here works great with sirloin, striploin, fillet, ribeye, flank and skirt steak. How […]

Soda bread
Serves 1

Ireland’s most famous bread is made with two of the oldest foods: wheat and buttermilk. The acid in the buttermilk reacts with the bicarbonate of soda and creates the rise. If you have kids you should teach them how to make soda bread, because it’s great to be able to put a loaf on the […]

Individual lemon meringue tarts
Serves 1

A showstopper dessert to land on the table at any dinner party. Have these made just before dinner and store them in the fridge until ready to serve. I like to do my meringue in front of everyone with a blowtorch as it adds such a ‘wow’ factor.

Vanilla crème brûlée
Serves 1

The traditional recipe for crème brulée is made with double cream and is rich and delicious. This lighter version of the classic French dinner party dessert uses milk instead of double cream. It tastes just as good but is much lighter. For a bit of variety you can put a layer of stewed fruit in […]

Panna cotta with mixed berry compote
Serves 1

If you are only starting out cooking and hosting for guests, panna cotta is a great dessert to start with. It is very simple to put together and easy to serve on the day. Try to use in-season berries for the compote.

Rice pudding soufflé with passion fruit sorbet
Serves 4

A soufflé never fails to impress. Just make sure you have everything ready and waiting the moment you take the dishes from the oven – serving plates, sorbet and guests. Make the soufflé base well in advance, but be ready to whip up the meringue and fold it into the soufflé base at the last […]

Lemon posset with marinated berries
Serves 1

A gorgeously light dessert which goes down easy after a heavy, hearty meal. It really can refresh your palate. Serves 4–6

Chocolate and Hazelnut Tart
