    Smashed Jersey Royals with tarragon and chive butter

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 4-6 as a side

    Ingredients

    1kg Jersey Royals
    80g salted butter, cut into cubes
    20g pack tarragon, leaves roughly chopped
    25g pack chives, roughly chopped
    4 salad onions, thinly sliced

    Method

    1. Put the potatoes in a large pan of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until a sharp knife glides into the centre without resistance.

    2. Drain the potatoes thoroughly, return to the hot pan and toss with the butter and most of the herbs. Use a potato masher or the flat base of a rolling pin to very gently smash open the potatoes, taking care not to mash them completely; they should still be quite chunky and retain some of their shape. Season, transfer to a serving dish and top with the salad onions and remaining herbs before serving.
