And with Christmas just around the corner, if you’ve got your family coming over for a festive feast, you’ll need to listen up.

“Drain them, give them a shake, and then they'll break up a little bit.”

Once the potatoes were cooked, he added: “[Add] two tablespoons of goose fat. If you want these to be vegetarian or vegan, vegetable oil is a good neutral oil to use.

“Now just coat these all in the oil – into the air fryer for 20 minutes at 190.”

Harrison then checked his potatoes, as he beamed: “Yo! They're looking good. That's really good for 20 minutes.

“We're gonna put them back in for another 20 minutes.”

After 40 minutes of cooking time, Harrison admired his spuds and claimed: “I'm genuinely in shock.”

He then explained: “Back in, same temperature, 15 minutes.”

Once the potatoes had cooked for a total of 55 minutes, Harrison continued: “These are actually spot on. 

“Top with rosemary salt. Look how fire they look.” 

The TikTok clip, which was posted under the username @harrisonwebb97, has clearly impressed many, as at the time of writing, it had amassed 543,100 views.

Social media users were open-mouthed at Harrison’s roast potato tutorial and many were eager to express this in the comments.

One person said: “UNREAL!!”

Another added: “These look amazing! I’m going to try this.”

Meanwhile, a third commented: “Made them tonight and they were perfect.”
