You will see all types of fingerling potatoes at the grocery store. They come in golden, red, purple, yellow, and even mixed like what I used.

What You’ll Need

  • Fingerling potatoes – Fingerling potatoes have a thin skin, so there is no need to peel them.
  • Olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper – The only seasonings you will need!


 You can try different flavorings such as rosemary or thyme. Add some fresh minced garlic or garlic powder.

How to Cook Crispy Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up.

Give them a good wash.

Potatoes cleaned, sliced, on a kitchen towel.

Mix olive oil, coarse sea salt, and pepper in a small bowl.

Dry the potatoes.  Slice in half lengthwise, and place in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and seasonings. Toss the potatoes to coat evenly.

Place on a baking sheet pan in a single layer.  (I used 2 pans for 3 pounds of potatoes.)  Roast for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are soft in the middle and crispy on the outside.  

This made a lot but you are going to need them because they disappear fast! This is also the perfect side dish for a dinner party.
