Note

Whole kipfler potatoes can also be cooked in boiling water. Ensure potatoes are fully cooked when tested with a skewer. Drain the potatoes, cut in half diagonally and then toss in remaining ingredients before roasting. The sous-vide method creates a better flavour, gives consistent results and can be prepared the day before. Store sous-vide potatoes in the refrigerator overnight and bring to room temperature before roasting
