One of my favorite ways to prepare any kind of potato is to roast them, so it seemed like an obvious choice to roast these fingerling potatoes.

The recipe for these Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes is simple — slice them in half length-wise, toss them with olive oil and a few seasonings and roast until tender, about 25 minutes. You can change up the seasonings however you’d like — I love using salt, pepper, garlic powder and smoky paprika. Feel free to use whatever you have on hand and keep it as simple or as complex as you’d like. They’d also be very delicious seasoned simply with salt and pepper. Make sure to flip the potatoes halfway through roasting so that they cook evenly.

Easy Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes work so well with beef, chicken, pork, and just about any other main dish you can think of. Miles, my 3 year old, loves kielbasa sausage, so I made these potatoes to serve alongside sausage and another of his favorites, corn on the cob. It was a super simple dinner that was ready in about 30 minutes with very little hands-on work. Serve with ketchup and enjoy!
