Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

by zesty on February 1, 2010 · 9 comments

Hey there and happy Monday!  I feel I have a little bit of hop in my hands on the keyboard tonight.  I am writing this post and watching the Grammy’s at the same time in preparation for tomorrow.  My calendar tomorrow is jam packed with work stuff as well as a meeting with the folks at OpenSky regarding product sourcing.

As an aside, you will never guess what I had for breakfast Saturday morning!  Another classic rendition of Super Star Toast.  You can never get tired of this.

On Saturday evening I was wandering around the kitchen and pantry trying to figure out what I can make for supper.  I was in a weird mood and totally unsure what to prepare.  We had just finished shoveling for about an hour and we were starving.  I remembered that I had bought some fingerling potatoes a week ago and had yet to crack them open.

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Just then the light bulb went off…. some roasted potatoes topped with red pepper flakes, chives and some Parmesan cheese.  What a choice!

Ingredients

  • 8 Fingerling Potatoes ( cut in 4)
  • 1 Tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
  • Dash of Garlic powder
  • 1 Tsp. Black Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 Tsp. Chives ( dried or fresh)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees
  2. fingers2

  3. Slice potatoes and rinse ( hand dry)
  4. fingers2

  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and grab a large bowl.
  6. Toss the potatoes in a large bowl and coat with all the ingredients ( preserving half the cheese and chives for the end )
  7. fingers2

  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown
  9. Top with leftover cheese and chives
  10. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: Ensuring the potatoes are dry before starting will ensure they get nice and crispy.  I also like to give them a quick turn in the oven about half way through so they get brown on all sides.

These potatoes were amazing!  The red pepper heat warmed us up from being outside and the Parmesan cheese added a great flavor.  I have also been on a huge sea salt kick as of late. Do you use sea salt when you cook?

I am going to watch a little bit more of the Grammy’s, do a sudoku puzzle and call it a night.  Have a great Monday.

Take care

zesty

These look amazing! I don’t use much salt at all when cooking, to be honest. I just picked up some pink salt the other day though. :)

These look pretty darn good, Zesty! Question…do you know if fingerling potatoes go by another name in some places? I could never find them in the UK and was just wondering if they have another name in Canada.

@Thinspired – They are basically just potatoes that are small and narrow that almost look like fingers. I am not sure if they have a more technical name.

The Grammy’s were kinda weird, I dunno! Something just seemed a little off about them. The MJ tributes were sweet, especially his kids.

Anyways, the ‘taters look delicious!! Mmmm!

Red pepper flakes and Parmesan … a match made in Heaven. Especially on a vehicle of crispy potatoes.
