    Ooh roasted would go down well with him I think. I've tried this before but they never turn out very well - any method I should follow?
    Its nice to be important but more important to be nice!

    Roasted with garlic and rosemary.

    All I do is bung a couple of cloves of chopped garlic and a good pinch or two of rosemary into roasting pan with a good splash of olive oil with the new potatoes mix it round until they are evenly coated and see if it looks like it has the right amount of rosemary and give it a sniff to see if it smells yummy then they go into oven until done which depends on size of potatoes.

    Always turns out fine and gets cleared off of OH's and DS's plates so it can't be bad

    something i do all the time as new spuds are the only ones allowed on the GI diet which i'm trying to follow..

    thickly slice new spuds (skins n all) - slices of between 5mm and a whole centimetre, put in a bowl then nuke on full power for about 5 minutes. When done, spray the potatoes with low-fat oil spray (or drizzle some oil - olive or sunflower - over the spuds) and stir. Sprinkle a *little* salt over them, and some BBQ Seasoning (Tescos sell it for between 50p to 1 a jar). stir, and repeat the BBQ seasoning, depending on how much you like it. (we like it a lot). Then grab a roasting tin or baking tray and pour the potatoes, juices n all, into the tray, and scatter the potatoes evenly around. Put into a hot oven - Gas mark 7 - for an hour till crispy. very very yummy.

    That sounds absolutely lovely keth, we have some new potatoes left I'm tempted to try that tomorrow. I really don't fancy more boiled potatoes and they need using up pretty soon

    Why would you necessarily want to do anything else with them? I look forward to the new potatoes - it is part of seasonal eating.

    You could leave some to go cold and make potato salad.

    i like to part cook my new potatoes, then cut them into chunks and put them in a curry, the 15-20mins simmering then cooks them thru in the sauce. always good to leave a portion for work too, as the curry sauce marinades the potatoes yum yum

    We love them roasted with a little olive oil...only take about 25 mins if they are quite small.

    If I have some that need using I bung in a stew with lamb etc.

    im not a huge fan of new pots really but they are great roasted or even sliced & scalloped for the tops of pies.

    I like to do them on buffets, dig out a little of each middle making a hole, mix what comes out with cheese and onion, sometimes bacon bits etc, then refil and bake. Can also do them as garlic ones, yum too!
