Setanta Potatoes with Basil & Dairygold

dgold setanta pot mar 16

If Roosters always rule at your dinner table, why not give Setantas a go? Named after the young Cú Chulainn, these floury new season potatoes have Rooster lineage – and speaking of Irish legends, they’re only fabulous with a dollop of Dairygold! If Setantas aren’t in season, Home Guards are just as good.


  • 1 large Setanta potato
  • 1 tbsp / 15g Dairygold
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Sprinkle of fresh basil (optional)


Boil or steam a large Setanta potato until light and fluffy (this should take about 20 minutes).

While you’re waiting for the potato to cook, if any of the family want to know who the original Setanta was, now’s a good time to tell them. You can’t beat a good Irish myth.

Add a pinch of salt, a dash of cracked black pepper and (of course) a dollop of Dairygold.

If you have some to hand, add a little extra depth by topping with a sprinkle of fresh basil. This will really bring out the potato’s natural flavour.
