Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Well, it's Tuesday, gang. And you know what that means. That's right, it means that if I happened to cook anything even remotely tasty in the last week, then I'm going to post it as a Tasty Tuesday recipe. I'm nothing if not predictable.

This week's Tinalicious treat is Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Being completely moderately obsessed with the Food Network, I like to think of myself as quite the food connoisseur. Granted, nobody else thinks of me that way, but there's nothing wrong with a little self-delusion on occasion to keep life interesting, no? Anyhoots, I'd seen fingerling potatoes in the store several times, but then also started seeing some of the Food Network chefs cooking them. So that was enough to sell me on the idea. And it turns out they are quite tasty!

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes Recipe

So here's the simple recipe, in case you'd like to try them too.


  • 2 Pounds Fingerling Potatoes

  • 3 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 TBSP Kosher/Course Salt (trust me, table salt will NOT do), to taste

  • 1/2 to 1 TSP Garlic Powder (to taste)

Wash the potatoes and quarter the larger ones. Put them in a bowl. Add the other ingredients. Mix well. Pour onto a baking sheet, making sure any cut potatoes are cut side down. Then bake  in a pre-heated 450° for 25 minutes or until tender.

The Hubs and I really liked these potatoes. It was a nice alternative to fried potatoes or French Fries, and they are just so easy to make. The only real downside for me was the cost of the potatoes. I think I paid $3.50 for the 2lb bag of potatoes, and that just seems pricey. But hey, they were good!

And life is short. If you can't eat some pricey fingerling potatoes once in awhile, then can you really say you're living? I think not.

Bon appetit!
