Water for the Gravy
a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a full kettle.
b) Halve the salad potatoes widthways, then pop them onto a baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer, cut-side down.
b) When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf, 20 mins.
c) When the potatoes have cooked for 20 mins, remove them from the oven. Use the bottom of a bowl or pan to lightly crush each potato half. Drizzle the smashed potatoes with more oil and return to the top shelf until crispy and golden, 10-15 mins.
a) While the potatoes roast, halve, peel and thinly slice the onion. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Once hot, add the onion. Season with salt and pepper and fry, stirring occasionally, until golden, 10-12 mins.
b) Meanwhile, pick the sage leaves from their stalks and roughly chop (discard the stalks). Roughly chop the cranberries.
c) Once the onions have fried, add the water for the gravy (see pantry for amount) to the pan, then add the sage and cranberries. Bring to a boil on high heat. Stir in the red wine jus paste, then reduce the heat to medium-high. Allow the sauce to bubble and thicken, stirring regularly, 6-7 mins. TIP: If your red wine jus paste has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.
a) Once crispy and golden, pop the smashed potatoes onto your serving plate and drizzle over the onion gravy.
b) Finish with a sprinkle of crispy onions.
