  • Large and deep frying pan


  • 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


  • Cut any large potatoes in half, then boil or steam the potatoes until tender, around 15 mins
  • Drain the potatoes & return to the pan. Put back on the hob for a minute or two to steam off any excess water.
  • In your large & deep frying pan, add half the olive oil & put on the stove hob to heat up.
  • Once the oil is hot, carefully add the potatoes.
  • Use a potato masher to gently crush the potatoes. You want them to all sort of squish into each other.
  • Drizzle over the rest of the oil & add the sage leaves.
  • Season with salt & pepper to taste.
  • Let the potatoes sizzle on a low-medium heat, occasionally squishing them down a little more.
  • The potatoes should be ready in around 10 minutes. The longer you leave them, the better the crust, but beware not to burn!
  • Serve as part of a roast dinner or with some lentil loaf! Also amazing with some gravy!
