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.

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.
