“Crispy Smashed Potatoes with Fried Onions and Parsley” from “Dining in”

Kirstin: We often celebrate Fridays with fizz and friends. I usually roast a chicken and some new potatoes and then make some interesting salads to accompany the meal. But my good friend Georgia (who I’ve given this book to) alerted me to this recipe. And it was a lovely evening and I had all the ingredients except for parsley and so I thought why not. And now I will never want to make potatoes in any other way. Alison is a complete genius. The Aleppo chilli and fried onions work a treat with the slightly smashed potatoes; I smiled the entire time I made this, thinking of how much everyone was going to enjoy it. And enjoy it we did; by the end of the meal all of the potatoes were gone. My only criticism is that there was too much oil, but I’ll figure that out the next time I make this. Because there will be a next time. I’ve already been asked to never make potatoes any other way. And by the end of the meal, I had ordered another copy of the book for our fizz Friday friends too as we drooled over the salad recipes. Alison Roman I love you.

    I didn’t know it was possible to get people eating potatoes any more enthusiastically than my boil/crush/roast ones. But these! These are amazing. So, so good. Now I want them again.

  2. Being a thrifty collector, it has been a long time since I’ve purchased a cookbook at close to the RRP.. but I couldn’t resist any longer. Since Nigella featured the anchovy butter chicken in her cookbook corner I’ve made it at least once a fortnight.. and every new recipe you’ve posted is further temptation. I was finally broken by some smashed tatties. You should take a commission for the sales ha.
