Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes Recipe

Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes only have 2 ingredients besides the potatoes. Another SIS (simple is smart) recipe to make your dinner prep. easy.

Those fingerling potatoes are looking a little gnarly. That is because they are potatoes that grew from “volunteers.” That’s right, last year when I dug my fingerling potatoes, some of the potatoes were missed and left in the ground over the winter. Come spring, they sprouted and grew, yielding a nice crop of organically grown gnarly looking potatoes. The important thing is that they taste better than those pretty fingerling potatoes you buy in the store. They didn’t cost me a dime, unlike the organic $5/pound fingerling potatoes in the store.
I have another recipe for oven-roasted potatoes on this site. However, the seasonings for the potato in that recipe are all fresh chopped herbs with garlic and onions. This involves a lot of chopping and mixing, so I created this SIS recipe for the times you just want a fast, simple, and tasty side dish.

SIS is the key to this delicious dish of Oven Roasted fingerling potatoes.  This recipe is so simple because it only has 2 ingredients in addition to the potatoes.  A package of onion soup and some vegetable oil to drizzle over them before they are baked.

  3. Sprinkle a package of onion soup mix over the potatoes and toss again to let the soup mix coat the potatoes. 
  4. Bake at 425-degrees until the potatoes are crispy on the outside and fork-tender on the inside.  This usually takes 45 minutes to an hour.
