Ensure potatoes are nice and dry, drizzle with the olive oil then roll carefully in the Hand Smoked Manuka and flour mix.
Pre-heat oven to 190°c.
Put canola oil into an oven tray and warm for ten minutes in the hot oven.
Carefully add spiced potatoes (slit side up), into the oil and bake for 45-60 minutes. (about half way through cooking time coax the slits apart a little with a spatula or knife and baste the potatoes with the hot oil.)
Once potatoes look golden and crispy remove from oven and place onto a serving dish/plate.
Sprinkle with freshly chopped oregano or chives.
Add crispy bacon bits and Parmesan cheese, and perhaps a dollop of sour cream to serve for a truly legendary side dish!
