  • 600 g medium floury potatoes such as Maris Piper
  • 5-8 Tbsp olive oil you might use more or less!
  • 15 leaves fresh sage
  • salt & pepper
  1. Cut any large potatoes in half, then boil or steam the potatoes until tender, around 15 mins

  2. Drain the potatoes & return to the pan. Put back on the hob for a minute or two to steam off any excess water.

  3. In your large & deep frying pan, add half the olive oil & put on the stove hob to heat up.

  4. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the potatoes.

  5. Use a potato masher to gently crush the potatoes. You want them to all sort of squish into each other.

  6. Drizzle over the rest of the oil & add the sage leaves.

  7. Season with salt & pepper to taste.

  8. Let the potatoes sizzle on a low-medium heat, occasionally squishing them down a little more.

  9. The potatoes should be ready in around 10 minutes. The longer you leave them, the better the crust, but beware not to burn!

  10. Serve as part of a roast dinner or with some lentil loaf! Also amazing with some gravy!
