Guest Recipe: Crushed, Roasted New Potatoes With Garlic

We are excited to share with you a guest recipe from the Sutton Hoo Chicken farmhouse. These crushed, roasted new potatoes with garlic are a family favourite of Sutton Hoo Chicken Founder Belinda Nash and go really well with a marinated spatchcock Sutton Hoo Chicken which can be cooked in the oven or enjoyed with a summer BBQ.

Serves 4



  1. Rinse off the new season baby potatoes, cutting the bigger ones in half to ensure they all cook evenly. Then drop into a pan of boiling water, along with salt and 3-4 whole, peeled cloves of garlic.
  2. Pierce them to check they are cooked through, then drain the potatoes, discarding the garlic.
  3. Toss them into a roasting dish, in a single layer. Then ‘crush’ them gently with a potato masher or fork – just to break the skin, not so they fall apart completely.
  4. Drizzle a two spoonful’s of olive oil over the potatoes, just to coat them. Along with 3-5 crushed cloves of garlic and a generous sprinkle of salt.
  5. Gently give the potatoes a good stir and place the tray in a hot oven, roasting until the turn brown. Halfway through roasting, you can add some chopped rosemary for extra flavour!
