Man reveals trick to guaranteeing crispiest roast potatoes every time is using honey and mustard

A MAN has revealed how he guarantees the crispiest roast potatoes each time he cooks – and they look mouth-watering. 

Home cook Justin Taylor said the secret to his crispy spuds is using honey and mustard. 

The 40-year-old foodie shared a snap of his delicious potatoes served alongside some gammon. 

He wrote: "Honey and mustard roast potatoes. Then Nutella bricks for dessert" . 

All you need are white potatoes, two teaspoons of Colman’s English mustard, four teaspoons of honey, and salt and pepper. 

You then need to make a baste mixture to add onto your potatoes when you put them in the oven, and then baste every five minutes after there is 20 minutes to go. 

You will need

  • Peeled and chopped white potatoes – quantity depends on how many people you're cooking for
  • Two teaspoons of Colman’s English mustard
  • Four teaspoons of squeezy honey
  • Black pepper and salt to taste


  1. Add pepper and the mustard into a bowl and blend them together.
  2. Then, add honey – make sure to mix thoroughly.
  3. Pre-heat your oven-safe roasting tray with oil and two tablespoons of butter and salt.
  4. Then add your potatoes and baste with the honey mustard mixture.
  5. When there's only 20 minutes left before they’re ready, baste them again – this will ensure they're full of flavour.
  6. Continue to baste every five minutes to keep them crisp.

His simple yet effective method appears to have gone down well with Facebook users. 

One person wrote: "They sound amazing – my mouths watering just reading that. Can’t wait to try them!"

Another added: "FFS, can I pay for a return ticket?"

And a third commented: "Yes, please."

Meanwhile, people are using Marmite to make ‘perfectly crispy’ roast potatoes & even haters are giving it a go.
