Many varieties of potato can be roasted but floury King Edwards are definitely the best. Roast potatoes will never be a healthy option but if you want to make a gesture in that direction then use olive oil to replace the lard.
Waitrose Frozen Roast Potatoes are an excellent option if you don't want to make them from scratch. To add a homemade touch, scatter 3-4 peeled and thinly sliced garlic cloves into the roasting potatoes.
