Cooking Instructions

Oven cook
Instructions: Here's how to cook 500g of McCain Roasts. If cooking a different amount, adjust the cooking time accordingly. To get the best results cook from frozen, our instructions are guidelines only. For the most delicious results, do not overcook!
Preheat the oven to 220°C/210°C Fan/Gas Mark 7.
For best results use a Deep edged baking tray with No Holes to prevent any of the basting fats from leaking into the oven and preheat the tray for 5 minutes.
Spread your roasts evenly in a single layer onto the baking tray. Pop it into the centre of the oven for 35-40 minutes, turning them every now and again, until they're lovely, crisp and light golden.

Preparation and Usage

  • For a crispy golden finish these roasts are basted in beef dripping & vegetable oil so please use a deep edged tray with no holes.
  • Take care - the fat will be hot!

Don't Buy This Rubbish

1 stars

These used to be the best but now they are too small for roast potatoes, beware when on offer, the price goes up and the quality goes down. I won't be buying again, Tesco's own brand offer the right size potatoes' or better still, roast your own, as I will do. McCain products are now out.

Greasy and wouldn’t brown up or crisp.

1 stars

Bought these for Christmas lunch. Cooked as per instructions and for recommended time but they did not brown or crisp up and were swimming in fat. They were in for over an hour and still did not brown. Very greasy and not pleasant. Will stick to Tesco’s own in future.


2 stars

Make sure you use a high sided tray for these as lots of fat comes out of them. Very small pieces but even so in the advised cooking time they did not get brown. They leave a very greasy aftertaste and I'm afraid the rest of the bag will be going in the bin. Very disappointing for a McCain product and not clear on the packaging that these are prepared using beef dripping [lots of it too!].

Roast potatoes made easy!

5 stars

Just opened a bag of these to test cook a few before the holidays and they are perfect. Easy to cook and good, consistent quality.

Inedible and would not purchase again.

1 stars

I thought I would purchase these for convenience in the run up to Christmas. Wished I hadn't. They were very different in size so did not cook equally. However, most importantly, they were dripping in grease. Even after they had been placed on kitchen towel twice. The kitchen smelt of fat until I had cleaned the oven. Annoying as I had only cleaned it that day and was not anticipating needing to clean it again pre Christmas. The rest of the packet was thrown away I normally make my roast with goose fat when needed and never have this problem?

Look raw even when cooked!

2 stars

Cooked for 1.5 hrs and still didn't get any colour on them! This was the second try as husband thought he'd messed up timings last time. I cooked this time and can confirm that they stay way too blonde to enjoy.

Probably the Best "Convenient" Roasties Available

4 stars

A roastie is a roastie, right? Wrong, my friends! These are the roasties to aim for, if you're not slaving lovingly over every last detail of them yourself. I should say that they are not vegetarian because they use beef dripping, so be warned about that. But if you follow the directions, you get reliably delicious roasties every time: crisp and crunchy on their golden outsides, fluffy and soft on the inside. Well worth the money if saving time and effort is your priority.

Not as good as mum used to make.....

4 stars

Nice roasties, but cooking instructions are a bit off, they take a tad longer to crisp up than they say on the packet. There not as good as your mum used to make for a Sunday roast, but they're not bad for a quick mid-week meal.

rather disappointing,not bad tasting,no colour

3 stars
