Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes





Bonus recipe!!!

This couldn't be simpler. Get these in the oven, after less than 5 minutes of prep, then get to work on your chicken and it should all be done at about the same time.

Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

1 lb fingerling potatoes
olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper
herbes de provence (optional, and you could also use your favorite herb blend instead)

Heat oven to 425°.
Wash potatoes. Dry on paper towels and put them on a baking sheet.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Add garlic to the potatoes, then sprinkle with salt, pepper, and herbs if you're using them. Toss to coat, really getting the garlic mixed in well.
Cook for 30 minutes.
Enjoy!

Awe. Some. We're grilling today, I think I might have to pick some of these babies up. Great recipe as always, Elle! :)

Fingers! Mmm I think that's what I'll do with those Jersey Royal new potatoes that I just bought for the Sunday roast. Thanks! You didn't parboil them at all, and they all cooked in 30 minutes in the oven?

Elle said...

Veggiegirl, Noble, Tiffany, Rita, and Nikki--thanks so much you guys!

Nilmandra--no, no parboiling, just put them in as is. They were perfect--tender and fluffy inside after roasting. TJ's was out of the little fingerlings when I went a couple days ago, so I bought small red potatoes, and I'll just cut those into wedges first.

I am a big fan of roasted fingerling potatoes but is hard to find it here in PA. I used to get it from the farmers market in OC, CA.

Elle,

For some reason, I have this obsession with fingerling potatoes, and I've never even had them. The day I finally try them will be a good day in my life. Perhaps I'll use this recipe. :)

I LOVE fingerlings. We used to have them all the time as kids because my grandpa grew them. They have a delicious, buttery flavor. YUM!

AMY VIG said...

These potatoes sound delicious! I'm going to have to give them a try.

Ann said...

I adore fingerlings! I also like to roast them and then serve them with aioli dip, yum! Oh, you made me hungry. :)

Renae said...

This is one of my favorite ways to cook potatoes because it's super easy and super tasty. I don't think I've ever made fingerling potatoes, but I think I need to give it a try.

Deborah said...

I just love potatoes and could eat these every day!

Shaye said...

L, Can I come over and have you cook salad and potatoes for me???
I'll bring my kid to entertain your kids, and my corgi to entertain your corgis!!! ;)

I've never heard of fingerling potatoes (outside of American cookbooks) but now I really want to suss some out. They look gorgeous - and I LOVE a roast potato :)

Fingerling potatoes are always so cute!

These look really good, and much easier than mashing potatoes. Love it!

Thank you, everyone! :)

Rhyleysgranny said...

I didn't have your fingerling potatoes but when I read this I rushed off and cut up some baby new potatoes and gave them the same treatment. Delicious. Thank you

I've never seen fingerling potatoes round here, but I did something similar with whole Jersey Royals - and they were utterly gorgeous!

The fingerlings are so cute though!
