This is a very straightforward way to prepare roast potatoes and its main characteristic is that we leave the potato skin on. It's full of flavours, very Mediterranean and ideal as accompaniment to roast lamb or mutton.

Wash the potatoes, removing any trace of soil (a small brush will do the job) and rinse under fresh running water.

Once the potatoes are cleaned, dry them using kitchen paper or whatever you have handy.

Once you have laid down all the slices, sprinkle on some olive oil.

Now, with the oven set to 190°C (375°F), put the tray onto the top shelf of the oven and roast for about 50 minutes. Anyway this cooking time may vary depending on the type of oven so what you really need to do is to check when the potatoes are crisp and golden.
