How many spuds do you need for a roast?
The BBC’s Good Food magazine has come under fire for suggesting that one roast potato per person is enough when cooking a Christmas roast.
I love BBC Good Food magazine but this is just all kinds of wrong, imagine a Christmas with one roast potato each pic.twitter.com/nMTmSG1oij— Alice Pope (@Alice_Pope) October 23, 2019
As someone who has eaten 19 roast potato pieces in a sitting, I don’t have a problem with the suggestion.
Ideally you should get at least four potato pieces from one roast potato, which I think is enough for Christmas dinner plans, given not everyone will even eat potatoes given the amount of food on offer at most Christmas dinners.
How many potatoes per person do you prepare for your Christmas roast?
