Whether you’re making baked salmon for dinner or some pesto chicken, this crispy roasted fingerling potatoes recipe is an excellent side dish to pair it with. If you love this recipe as much as we do, you’ll be looking for more and more excuses to make these fingerling potatoes as much as you can.
We prefer cooking fingerling potatoes in the oven because of the ease and convenience of doing so. When you use a dark coated baking sheet in a hot oven (400°F), you get fingerling potatoes that have superior texture compared to potatoes that have simply been baked or boiled.
Unlike baked fingerling potatoes, which usually cook at a lower temperature, these oven roasted fingerling potatoes are extra crispy and delicious. We also like to make these roasted fingerling potatoes with rosemary and olive oil for the lovely aroma and flavor they provide.
The best part about making fingerling potatoes is that it’s a recipe you don’t really need to prep for or set aside a tremendous amount of time for. Simply drizzle olive oil over the potatoes and garnish them with rosemary and seasoning, then roast them in the oven for about 40 minutes until brown and crispy. That’s all you have to do to make the best fingerling potatoes recipe for you and your family!
