A satisfying accompaniment for any main meal, especially a roast dinner. These soft buttery potatoes will melt in your mouth
- 1kg (2¼lb) baby or new potatoes
- 1-2 cloves garlic, peeled, left whole and squashed
- 2 bay leaves
- 40g (1½oz) butter
- 200ml (7fl oz) white wine
- Sea salt, for serving
Put the potatoes, garlic and bay leaves in one layer in a large pan. Add the butter and pour in the wine. Put the lid on the pan and cook over a med heat for about 45 mins, until the wine has almost been absorbed and the potatoes are tender.
Take off the lid and let the potatoes sizzle and brown in the juices for 10-15 mins, turning the potatoes until the skins are golden and crispy. Sprinkle with salt for serving.
Instead of wine, you can add vegetable or chicken stock.
