It’s one of those tips thrown around by TV chefs (probably Jamie Oliver in my case) while they’re cooking something else. Either way the seed was sown and one Sunday I thought I’d give it a go and here’s how I did it.

my site polenta roast potatoes


  • Any potatoes yes any! I’ve used cheap ‘white potatoes’, maris piper, disiree, and even new potatoes which needed to be used up.
  • A good glug of Olive oil- approx 3 tablespoons
  • 3 tablespoons of polenta
  • salt and pepper
  • Thyme or rosemary (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 200-225’C (200 if fan assisted)
  • Get a large pan of cold water, add a large pinch of salt and put on a medium heat.
  • While the pan of water is heating up peel and chop your potatoes. In my house we all like the smaller crispy ones so I cut each potato to roughly the size of a small egg.
  • By the time you’ve peeled and chopped your potatoes the water should be warm, not boiling. Add the potatoes to the pan at this stage and allow to heat to a slow simmer. This should take around 7 minutes.
  • Get a large roasting tray, the wide shallow ones are better than the smaller deep ones as if the potatoes are too cramped they won’t brown.
  • Line the tray with a sheet of baking paper… this may seem like a step which you can leave out, but trust me it’s so much easier if you do it! (cleaning and cooking wise).
  • Drizzle the olive oil onto the baking tray (lined with baking paper) and place the potatoes onto the tray. Next scatter the polenta on top.
  • Just shaking the pan doesn’t do a great job of coating each potato in oil and polenta, so I tend to lift each side of the baking paper up in turn to roll the potatoes over each other. I find this coats them better and they also don’t break up so much (especially if you’ve used over ripe fluffy potatoes which can crumble easily).
  • Season with salt, pepper and herbs and put in the oven for 30-40 minutes.

Last night I made them for a friend and served them with a chicken breast wrapped in baking paper with lemon, thyme, garlic and cherry tomatoes cooked in the oven for 25 mins and it was delicious!
