An easy traybake that’s bursting with flavour!
Disclosure: This is a commissioned recipe post for Tesco Jersey Royal New Potatoes
You know Spring has well and truly arrived when Tesco Jersey New Potatoes arrive in store (find them here!)– these little beauties are seasonal and only available between April and July. To celebrate their arrival in Tesco stores this year, I have created this delicious recipe- it’s super easy to throw together and baked all in one go in a baking tray which makes it completely hassle free! The flavours in it are all family friendly, and this is the perfect weeknight dinner to feed the whole family.
What’s special about Tesco Jersey Royal New Potatoes?
I have always loved these little potatoes as they are full of that earthy freshness that you get with new potatoes, and I love that they come in such a cute size- not only do they look great in any dish, they are also very popular with my kids thanks to being bite-sized! These potatoes have an iconic kidney shape, and a pleasingly waxy texture, with delicate skins that do not need to be removed prior to cooking. They can be steamed, roasted or boiled (beautiful just done simply with some fresh mint).
With a 140 year heritage, Tesco Jersey Royals can only be grown on the island of Jersey, and are produced and harvested using many traditional practices- they are planted by hand, and are fertilised using seaweed harvested from Jersey beaches- you can’t get much more wholesome than that.
Tesco Jersey Royals also carry the EU Protected Designation of Origin mark of authenticity, this means that a product has been produced, processed and prepared in one area, and has distinct characteristics from this area. The product must also be made using distinct local knowledge.
