Roasted Ayrshire potatoes with paprika

Cooks In
Cooking Time 1hr 15mins


1kg Scotty Brand Ayrshire or Baby potatoes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Garlic, crushed
60ml extra-virgin olive oil
Spring onion to garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / Gas mark 6.

  2. Scrub the potatoes (no need to peel them) and place them in boiling water for 10 minutes.  In a small bowl, whisk the oil with the garlic and paprika (adjust the quantities to your personal taste – one clove and a couple of pinches would be the start point).

  3. Remove the potatoes from the water.

  4. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, press them gently using a potato masher. The idea is to break them open – not to crush them. Toss them in the oil mixture, season with salt and pepper and place them on a greased baking sheet.

  5. Bake for 40-50 minutes until they are golden and crispy outside. Garnish with chopped spring onion and serve.
