Potatoes and onions

This month, Farm Chef Mary-Ann Beaty wanted to share some recipes that use a lot of milk, in support of the British Dairy industry.

These potatoes are a firm favourite of Mary-Ann’s and are actually “the only thing” her husband has ever learned to cook.

These potatoes are a great side dish to Mary-Ann’s roast pork dish
