If you prefer classic, plain roasties, just leave the potato pieces unsliced and roast them in the hot fat for 1½ hours.
Easy Proper Gravy
If you have giblets from a turkey you are cooking, make stock by simmering them (minus the liver), with onion, celery, carrot, parsley, bay leaves and about 1 litre water for 2 hours - see waitrose.com for a recipe.
When the turkey is cooked, pour the juices from the roasting tin into a jug. Skim off the fat from the top and discard. Make up the juices to 600ml with the giblet stock, or other stock, then pour back into the roasting pan and bring to the boil.
Blend 3 tbsp port with 1½ tbsp cornflour, add to the pan and cook, whisking, till thickened. Season. Serve in a warmed jug. Serves 10.
