Braised Waxy Potatoes
Step 1: Preheat a fan forced oven to 180C.
Step 2: Cut the potatoes into halves or quarters, depending on how large they are.
Step 3: Place the potatoes in a small but deep baking or casserole dish so that they all sit snugly but will be submerged by the stock.
Step 4: Add the stock, bay leaves, unsalted butter and Extra Virgin Olive Oil along with a pinch or two of sea salt.
Step 5: Place uncovered dish into the oven for an hour to an hour and a half (the timing will depend on the size and type of potatoes used), gently basting the potatoes with the cooking liquid every now and again.
Step 6: When the potatoes are tender, remove from the oven, sprinkle with thyme, flat leaf parsley, lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper.
Step 7: Adjust the seasoning if necessary and serve.
