Oh, these British Gems Baby New Potatoes are so cute! Loaded with tasty guacamole and black bean salsa, they are perfect as a side dish for barbecues or buffets. We love them with veggie sausages or a salad.
I used Sainsbury’s British Gems Baby New Potatoes, Taste the Difference for this recipe. Fresh from field to store in just 48 hours, these baby potatoes are the ‘perline’ variety and are exclusive to Sainsbury’s. British Gems are the perfect potatoes to take over from Jersey Royals during the summer months and available in Sainsbury’s stores from May until then end of August. They are delicious in roasted, fried or boiled.
British Gems have a thin skin and a slightly sweet buttery texture which balances perfectly with the fresh guacamole and juicy salsa.
It is a very straightforward recipe. All you do is roast the potatoes while you prepare the guacamole and salsa. Once done, you could fill these British Gems Baby New Potatoes as mini jacket potatoes, but I found it easier to crush and flatten them carefully and add the delicious fillings on top. Serve them warm or at room temperature.
