Goose fat roast potatoes

For amazing roast potatoes, try goose fat. Choose potatoes that are fluffy but firm enough not to disintegrate in the roasting pan.


3 lb potato (medium sized, peeled and halved)
  cooking fat (goose fat)
  seasoning (salt and pepper to taste)


  1. Partly cook potatoes by boling for about 10 minutes, drain until fairly dry.
  2. Either place jarred goose fat into pan and heat in the oven while preparing potatoes, or spoon off goose fat into a separate pan while roasting the bird.
  3. Place potatoes in the goose fat and roast for 40 minutes on a high shelf, shaking them a couple of times to turn around.

Roast potatoes partly cooked and dried, in a high shelf in a hot oven. For special potatoes, add flavorings in with the potatoes. Cloves of garlic and herbs such as rosemary or thyme are some suggestions. Choose a flavor to match the main course. Anchovies could flavor potatoes served with a Mediterranean dinner.
