Salt & Vinegar Potatoes

Carole's Chatter: Salt & Vinegar Potatoes

This is an easy way to get scrumptious crispy and soft potatoes.  Next time I'll use a stronger vinegar.


Baby potatoes
Olive oil
Rice vinegar (2 ½ teaspoons)


Pre-heat your oven to hot – in my case about 200C

Steam your potatoes – no peeling first.  Mine took about 10 minutes in my microwave steamer.

Put a baking dish into the oven with oil in it.  I used a good amount of ordinary olive oil.

Let the steamed potatoes sit on a plate for a couple of minutes and pat dry.

Squash each potato with a fork.

Put the potatoes into the hot oil.  Cook for 30 minutes, turning them once or twice.

Lift the potatoes out onto a serving plate.  Sprinkle with salt – amount to your taste and then drizzle them with the vinegar.  Next time I'm going to use malt vinegar and 1 tablespoon of it.  While my better half could detect the vinegar it was much too subtle for me.


  1. I wouldn't like it but I know my boyfriend would adore it

  2. Yummmm , love salt and vinegar potatoes. I think malt vinegar works better. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Easy and sounds really good.

  4. Brilliant - I love slat and vinegar chips (crisps) so these are right up my alley.

  5. I'm with Tina, I am a big fan of salt & vinegar crisps--this sounds delicious!
