Place the tin in the oven for about 25 minutes or until the potatoes are crisp, brown and cooked through.

- 4. Combine the rest 1/8 cup water with the cornstarch and whisk the mixture into the boiling sauce stirring continuously for 1 minute. Turn of the heat and let the sauce cool down before serving.
