“This is a recipe I kind of just discovered one day and it is now a firm family favourite in our house, I also make roast potatoes the same way - delicious!!! Be careful not to set the over too high and watch the amount of oil you put in, I have been thinking about using a spray oil but haven't yet tried it, perhaps you can and let me know how they turn out!!! Also, you can use dried herbs but I prefer fresh as I grow my own and they taste so much better, you can also use a different strength of olive oil if you wish, but I prefer extra virgin. I wouldn't recommend using anything other than olive oil mind you, it adds to the flavour! I also like to add a little bit of BBQ seasoning to mine but this is optional, if you want it, add it before cooking...”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the potatoes into fries (chips for those in the UK!) LEAVE THE SKINS ON! Then, rinse under cold water and leave to drain on one side.
  2. Pull leaves off of thyme and rosemary and discard stalks.
  3. Slice and chop garlic cloves.
  4. Slice up thyme and rosemary a little to release the flavours.
  5. Add a couple of tablespoons of oil to a roasting dish and place in the over for 5 minutes to heat.
  6. Once heated, pop the fries into the rosting pan and drizzle a bit more oil over, and sprinkle the herbs and garlic over before shaking to coat nice and evenly.
  7. Pop back in the over, at the top of the oven for about 25-30 mins, checking every 10 minutes and shaking to coat.
  8. Drain them on kitchen towel before serving.
