How to Make Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

These oven roasted potatoes are incredibly easy to make… and even easier to eat!

  1. Toss the potatoes. Toss the slices fingerling potatoes in a mixture of melted butter, olive oil, freshly grated parmesan cheese and your seasonings.
  2. Roast the potatoes. Bake the potatoes on a baking sheet, cut side down, for about 25-30 minutes at 425°F.
  3. Flip, garnish, and serve. Flip the potatoes and let them cook for another 5 minutes before removing them from the oven. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.

What do I need to make Roasted Fingerling Potatoes?

One of the best parts of this recipe is the fact that it’s made entirely with kitchen staples that you probably already have on hand! If you do need to go to the store, don’t worry – your shopping list is nice and short.

  • Butter – I prefer using unsalted butter to avoid a lot of sodium.
  • Olive Oil – You can use avocado oil instead if you’d like.
  • Seasonings – A simple mix of garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper is all you’ll need to add subtle, yet delicious flavor to the potatoes.
  • Parmesan Cheese – Freshly grated parmesan cheese always yields the best flavor.
  • Fingerling Potatoes – Any color of potatoes will work just fine in this easy recipe.
  • Parsley – Fresh parsley is an optional garnish. I like to add it for a pop of color and the light herbaceous aroma it provides.

How long will Roasted Fingerling Potatoes stay fresh?

Once the potatoes have fully cooled to room temperature, transfer them to an airtight container and pop them in the fridge. Properly stored, your leftovers should stay fresh for about 3-4 days. Feel free to reheat them either in the microwave or right back in the oven until warmed through.
