There are three characteristics that make potatoes fantastic. Flavor and a creamy, crispy texture. This recipe is versatile and simple. Par-boiling in a separate pan is not necessary. Boiling and roasting all in one pan helps these potatoes retain their flavor and contributes to the contrast in texture. Our flavor profiles are simply suggestions, try your own. The secret is choosing a fat (butter, oil, animal fat) and a flavor (herbs, garlic, zest, vinegar, etc.) and following the technique. Try it and let us know what you think. Oh and serve them HOT!
