Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

The average American eats somewhere around 140 pounds of potatoes a year or 365 potatoes per person—that’s an average of a potato a day.  But only around a quarter of those potatoes are fresh (versus frozen, dehydrated or in chip form).  Let’s give that percentage a little bump up shall we?

What are Fingerling Potatoes?

Fingerling potatoes are small, slim, stubby potatoes – finger-shaped, as it happens.  They have thin skins and cook up quickly, especially if you slice them in half, so when time is a factor they are just the ticket.  Besides being cute and delicious and all of that.

Roasting is my favorite way to cook these little nuggets – 25 minutes in a fairly hot oven and done.  You can stick with olive oil and salt and never be disappointed, or you can add in some fresh herbs, garlic, as well as various spices, and fancy them up a bit.

I can’t think of a meal that these wouldn’t make a little bit nicer.

And they also make a terrific appetizer.  You serve with cute little toothpicks, or just let people pick up with their actual fingers.  You know your crowd, you decide.

What to Serve with Fingerling Potatoes:

They are delicious on their own, but you might also consider a dipping sauce, like Easiest Herb Dip Ever, Arugula Basil Dipping Sauce, or Creamy Mustard-Oregano Sauce. These would be fantastic next to a roast Porchetta or a slice of Classic Meatloaf.
