Parmesan Basil Fingerlings – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Fingerling potatoes are finger-shaped potatoes which are naturally small in size and are perfect for roasting.  Fingerlings comes in several varieties such as; Russian Banana, Purple Peruvian and French Fingerlings.  Any of these varieties can be used in this recipe for Parmesan Basil Fingerlings because after cooking, they all achieve a creamy interior texture and crunchy skin.

Fingerlings are perfect for a side dish with roasted meats, sausages and burgers, but they are also fun to add on top of salads for a nice vegetarian meal.  I like to serve these family style right out of the oven and if you have any leftover, you can puree them up with a little broth or cream for an outstanding potato soup.

Ingredients

12-15 fingerling potatoes, any variety

1/3 cup parmesan cheese

5 leaves fresh basil

salt

pepper

olive oil

(Serves 4)

To Prepare:

1.  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Wash and slice each fingerling in half.  Drizzle 3 tablespoon olive oil on a sheet pan and toss with potatoes.  Sprinkle the potatoes with salt and pepper and lay them cut-side-down on the sheetpan.  Roast the potatoes in the oven for 30 minutes.
