New potatoes are always so fun cook with, I love that they’re bitesized and you can literally pop them whole into your mouth.
I had the privilege of working with Tesco for this recipe to help promo their Jersey Royal New Potatoes that are back in season. Love that the Tesco brand are only grown on the Jersey Island, which makes them much more authentic.
Because of their size, they make great for canapés at events or you can throw a bunch of them roasted into a salad and voila! You have a great lunch! This recipe was fun and easy to make, not mention even more delicious to eat! If you’d like to try this for a function or just at home, scroll down for the full recipe.
