Jamie Oliver’s Pan “Roast” Potatoes

Roast potatoes are a very important thing in our family, they are not merely a side dish or something that goes with meat.  Roast Potatoes are a meal in themselves.  My little nieces can eat their own body weight in “roasters” every Sunday and a competition is held regularly.

These potatoes are not oven roasted but are simmered and then “pan roasted” until crispy and brown.  The lemon gives them an extra edge.  Crushing them slightly, gives more surface area to be browned and crispy.
