  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Boil the potatoes for 4 mins. Drain and return to the pan. Replace the lid and gently shake.
  2. Heat the oil in a roasting tin in the oven for 5 mins, then tip in the potatoes; roast for 20 mins. Give the tin a shake, increase the heat to gas 7, 220°C, 200°C and cook for 35 mins more or until golden.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the butter into cubes. 5 minutes before the end, dot the butter over the roast potatoes and scatter over the sage.
