Roasted Fingerling Potatoes


Over the past few weeks,
I have been seeing fingerling potatoes again in the grocery stores.
I love these little potatoes.
Fingerling potatoes have a creamy, almost sweet flavor that goes well with meat, poultry and fish. They're a nice alternative to white, gold or red potatoes.
They also cook up fast,
which makes them great for a quick,
hurry up supper side dish or potato salad.
Plus, they are delicious~

My favorite way to prepare fingerling potatoes is to roast them.
Roasting brings out their mild and earthy flavor.
I like to serve fingerlings as a side dish
with Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing~

A fingerling potato is a small, stubby, finger shaped type of potato,
hence the name, fingerling potatoes.
Fingerlings are varieties that naturally grow small and narrow.
They are fully mature when harvested and
are not to be confused with new potatoes.
Popular fingerling potatoes include the yellow skinned Russian Banana,
the orange skinned French and
the purple skinned Purple Peruvian.
Fingerlings can be baked, broiled, boiled, fried, roasted, sauteed, grilled or mashed.
Fingerlings are used as a side dish or in salads.
Anyway you make these little beauties, they are delicious~
