    i like mine to be nicely steamed then lob then in oil coated plate and bung them in oven with full heat for a crisp outside, put salt/rosemary if desired. Or, buy those seasoning packets, and add then onto tatty segments, with some cheese added onto it at the last moment.

    Steam for a good 20-30 mins for a whole potful, then bake for 20-30 mins, and theurn them around half way round. It is way too much hassle, but just wait for those lovely christmas tatties.

    Part boil the peeled potatoes - no more than 5 minutes. Empty water, put saucepan back on stove and shake it - this makes the outside of the spuds a bit 'fluffy'. Put into roasting tin (which has a mixture of hot oil, butter, herbs and garlic) and pop into hot oven for, say 45 minutes, turning once half way through). The fluffing of the spuds after par boiling ensures they come out nice and crunchy on outside whilst remaining nice and dry inside.
    My mum's roast potatoes are the best!!

    After reading the delicious way of doing em, makes mine seem bland, boil for 30 mins, preheat deep fat fryer, drop em in hot fat and fry until crisp. Alternatively, gate crash someone elses house and invite yourself for dinner :P

    Buy some (altho did you know they're not hard to grow in your backyard? A neighbour of ours does, but then, we live in Aus, so not sure about the UK situation, but I'm sure you can grow them there).

    Peel them, wash them, bake them Mmmm!

    For technical instructions, what 2776 said!

    put them in the oven for an hour or until they are baked.
    you can microwave some for about 10 minutes.
