    I just cut mind and spray a baking tray with fry light and then spray the potatoes themselves and perhaps sprinkle a few herbs on them - depends how ambitious I am feeling!

    If you want a nice crisp to them you can use some sea salt as well.

    Yes you can use frylite in the actifry. Things like sausages & meat are brilliant with frylite. Chips & potatoes are very nice, but I do try to reserve a few syns for olive oil with them because I think they are better than ordinary chips & roasties with with it.

    I've just had roast potatoes tonight, my own kind though. lol

    I microwave two medium sized potatos in their skins for approx 7 mins.

    Then cut them both in half, place on a baking tray, sprinkle with some salt and spray with some frylight and then bake in the oven to crisp and golden brown.

    Delicious!!!!

    Update on the Actifry Roasties - they were lovely with the Frylight, but even better using the olive oil right enough ..... my daughters are going to try the Frylight for other things in their Actifry's too ..... they're keen to lose a couple of extra pounds and this could help a bit, together with my Slimming World books they've "borrowed"! - I'd better get them back though .... lol
