Woman says the secret to crispy roast potatoes is Marmite – even haters love it

marmite makes crispy roast potatoes

Food blogger Beth shared a recipe for the crispiest roast potatoes to her Instagram but it contains one slightly odd ingredient, Marmite

For many people, crispy roast potatoes are the star of any Sunday dinner – but everyone has their own tips and tricks for perfecting them.

Whilst one chef says that incorporating the skin of the potatoes into the recipe gives you the fluffiest potatoes, Marmite users are saying it’s the dark, gooey consistency of the condiment that guarantees that perfect crispy, glazed exterior.

Now, when it comes to Marmite it’s true that you either love it or hate it, but we think this recipe might just win the haters over.

Food blogger Beth shared the simple step-by-step recipe to her Instagram account and you only need five ingredients.

Beth from Leicestershire wrote: “I’ll be cooking some of these later for my tea and as I always get asked how I make them I thought I’d post the recipe again for those that want to try these beauties.”

All you need to make these delicious looking potatoes is some salt and pepper, oil or Frylight as well as the star of the show, Marmite.

She explained: “To make, peel and par boil some potatoes (7 ish minutes) then drain and drizzle Marmite all over them” and also revealed that she sometimes heats a spoon before digging into the Marmite pot to make it easier to get it out.

“To make them extra crispy and Marmite’y… every 20 minutes cover with more Marmite and spray with Frylight again.

“I never have a roast without these now.”
