Roasted Fingerling Potatoes
Over the past few weeks, I have been seeing fingerling potatoes again in 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’re delicious.
with creamy blue cheese dressing. Roasted fingerling potatoes are great used as a leftover add-in to an omelette, frittata, fried or as potato salad. So make extra!
What is a Fingerling?
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.
