How to Cook Fondant Potatoes

  1. Scrub the potatoes then slice the ends off so they stand flat on either end. Peel and crush the garlic.
  2. Heat the fat (or oil) in a pan over a medium heat. When hot, add the potatoes cut-side down. Fry for 5-7 mins, or until deep golden brown. Once browned, turn them over and fry on the other end. Add the butter to the pan to melt.
  3. Scatter the garlic and herbs around the potatoes and season well. Carefully pour the stock into the pan, being aware of any hot butter that may splash out. Cover and cook on medium heat for 25-30 mins, or until the potatoes are tender. Lift out of the pan with a slotted spoon and serve hot.

Choose Maris Piper or Yukon Gold potatoes. They have a creamy-white flesh that lends itself perfectly to fondant potatoes. They aso have a golden skin which looks perfect when cooked.
