Roasted Potatoes tossed in olive oil, lemon juice, and Parmesan cheese. Just a pinch of salt makes these a perfectly flavorful side dish for any meal!
Confession time: I’m not much of a potato person. I know….great way to start a post about potatoes, right? But it’s true! It’s not that I don’t like them (I do)….it’s just that, when it comes to all things delicious, potatoes are not at the top of my list.
While other people swoon over french fries, hash browns, and tater tots…..I’d take salad or roasted veggies any day! Or at least I would have….before I discovered fingerlings.
What makes fingerlings more delicious than any other potato? Well, they’re super moist, they’ve got a great skin to flesh ratio, and they actually have more flavor than most other potatoes. Also, since they’re so small, they cook quickly. Which works well for someone who’s always a little short on time.
But the best part of these potatoes is that they’re so darn cute. Ha! But really…..don’t you just want to eat them up? And, as is the case with cute things, they’re fun to dress up! The possibilities are really endless, but with Easter just around the corner, I decided to keep it simple and light with a little lemon juice and a lot of Parmesan. Because potatoes are an essential part of any Easter meal…..but if you’re going to serve them, they better be delicious!
