When the oven is being used to its full capacity, the potatoes will take a while longer to get a nice golden crust. When the turkey is cooked and resting, increase the oven temperature to 220°C, gas mark 7 and cook the potatoes until they become crisp and golden. If you need to keep the potatoes warm while finishing off the other vegetables, keep them at the bottom of the oven but do not cover them with foil, as they will go soggy.
To make in advance, peel the potatoes, parboil and shake to roughen the edges. Cool thoroughly then freeze on a tray, spaced well apart. Once frozen, seal in a bag and freeze for up to 1 month. Cook from frozen at 200°C, gas mark 6, for 1 hour 15 minutes, turning occasionally in the hot fat.
