Desiree potatoes have a firm, creamy tasting flesh making them ideal for smooth mash or being cooked in a sauce, such as our favourite Potato Dauphinoise/Dauphinoise Potatoes. Desiree are available across the major retailers and are easily recognisable by their lovely red skin and light yellow flesh. Desiree are normally larger, longer and oval shape.
An easy dish to make taking just 10 minutes to prep, this casserole is healthy and nutritious containing potatoes, sausages and peppers.

A perfect centrepiece to a lunch occasion - served with so many different combinations to suit the time and the weather.
Quick, simple and comforting, this recipe is so easy to make and curl up on the sofa with a good film. If you have a particular favourite, switch the chives out for your preferred herb or spice.
This variety was named after Lady Eve Balfour – a pioneer of the UK organic movement. It has a uniform oval shape, creamy skin and pale tasty flesh. It performs well as mash, boiled or wedges.
