Crushed New Potatoes


This is a recipe that Jill and I with our hats on, have been cooking alot of lately. It’s a great way to turn New (or old) potatoes into something a little different. Great to eat with BBQ food or to go with fish or a summer roast. If you decide to give these a go make sure you make double because they will be devoured !

What you will need (serves 6)

1 kg (2lb) New potatoes

3 tablespoons of olive oil

good knob of butter

1tsp fennel seeds

handful fresh rosemary

1 garlic bulb, cloves peeled and bruised
