DELICIOUS

Description

The funny things is that until Jade was about 10 she didn’t like potatoes. It all changed one day when she saw me smashing these with my palm and asked if she could help.

I let her take over and finish the recipe. At dinner that night she agreed to try one, and since then, she constantly requests these potatoes.

I play around with spicing it too. I sometimes use Salt & Vinegar as and nod to the slap chips I grew up on in South Africa.

I guarantee this is going to be one of your go to recipes from now on and don’t forget to let your kids help out in the kitchen.

Happy cooking xxx Chef MM
