Roasted Potatoes with Mature Cheddar Cheese



This is a lovely twist to traditional roast potatoes, sure to make a regular appearance on the table.


Serves 4 – 6



1kg Rooster Potatoes

100g Mature Cheddar Cheese (e.g Hegartys or similar), grated

2 tbsp Duck Fat

Salt & Pepper



Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.


Peel the potatoes and cut into large chunks. Place in a pan of lightly salted cold water and cook over a medium heat for 10 minutes.   Drain the potatoes and return to the pan, shake vigorously to roughen up the edges.


Spoon the Duck Fat onto a baking tray and transfer to the preheated oven for 4 – 5 minutes, once the fat has melted remove the tray from the oven and add the potato pieces to the tray. Season with some salt and pepper, and sprinkle with the grated cheese, return to the oven. Roast for 25 minutes until the potatoes are nice and crispy on the outside yet soft in the centre.
