Crispy Potato Roast
I’ll take absolutely no credit for coming up with these easy oven roasted potatoes! It’s all Martha Stewart’s! But when I saw this recipe I felt it was truly calling my name as it’s not only so appealing to the eye but by reading the instructions, it sounded really simple and easy to make too. Time consuming, yes, but totally worth it!

I am not one to spend so much time in the kitchen (this recipe calls for 2 hours for baking and about 20 minutes preparing the ingredients)! BUT! I thought since I’m not making these sliced roasted potatoes on a daily basis, I can spend a bit more time in the kitchen making a simple but festive looking dish. Turns out I made the right choice as although my crispy oven potatoes spent 2 hours in the oven, I had time to do other stuff in between checking them up to brush some more oil and butter on. I actually finished 2 other projects for this site while these splendid easy oven roasted potatoes was baking. Pretty impressive!
I made a couple of alterations to the original crunchy roast potatoes recipe by adding bacon, some chili pepper flakes, sesame seeds and a bit more butter and oil (because of my nasty oven which keep playing tricks on me every time I bake something; or maybe I just suck at baking! Who knows?).
