Fingerling Potatoes

Just received 2 lbs of fingerling potatoes from a nearby farm. Any ideas on what I can do with them? Should I prepare them the same way as baby potatoes or are there some recipes out there that are really good?

  1. I'd probably roast them then throw some perseillade on at the last few minutes of cooking. Yum.

    1. I love alton browns salt potatoes recipe on . It is really yummy with fingerlings.

      1. I usually throw them on a grill wok (or something with holes to let the heat flow through) on my grill/smoker Big Green Egg. Wood chips add a ton of flavor as well.


        12-15 Fingerling or baby Yukon Potatoes
        Kosher Salt to taste
        Fresh Ground Black Pepper to taste
        1/2 to 1 teaspoon paprika
        1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
        1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
        2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
        1/2 teaspoon chili powder (optional)

        DIRECTIONS: Preheat grill or oven to 350 degrees.

        Wash and dry potatoes thoroughly and place in a large bowl
        Pour olive oil over potatoes and use your hands to evenly distribute
        Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste and rub
        Sprinkle remaining ingredients to desired proportions (taste with your finger and then add more if needed) and rub thoroughly for even distribution
        Place seasoned potatoes in vegetable grill wok or pan (preferably with holes for even cooking).
        Cook for 30-45 minutes or until done turning once.

        1. They make great tasting hash browns with sauted onions and green pepper....even scramble a few eggs. Now I'm hungry..

          1. They make a great roasted potato salad served either warm or at room temp. Us a white wine vinegar/dijon mustard/grainy mustard dressing. Add some chopped green onions, maybe a little chopped celery. It's good.
