Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. In a casserole dish; 30cmx5xm, place the McCain Potato Roasts/Wedges and Brussels Sprouts and onions, toss through the olive oil and rosemary leaves. Roast until the vegetables are tender and golden, approximately 30 minutes. (Throughout the cooking, using a lifter; turn the vegetables to ensure even cooking and colour.)
  2. Meanwhile for the sauce: in a medium saucepan; heat the butter on a medium heat. Add the flour and stir using a wooden spoon until a thick paste is formed. Slowly and gently add in the milk, stirring continuously. Season; once the sauce has thickened and flour cannot be tasted, add in the cheese and allow to melt through.
  3. Pour the sauce over the potatoes and Brussels sprouts; stir through to ensure the vegetables are coated. Bake at 220°C until the top is crispy.
  4. Meanwhile, for the carrots: in a large saucepan, heat the McCain Carrots Julienne, with the oil, honey, paprika and seasoning. Allow the carrots to cook until tender and are coated in a dark sticky glaze. Add fruit juice to loosen the glaze and serve immediately.
