Calories: 166kcal


  • 1.5 pounds fingerling potatoes - washed, dried, and cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon butter - melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh chopped parsley - to garnish, optional


  • Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean-up.
  • Wash and thoroughly dry your potatoes. Slice each potato in half lengthwise and transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil and melted butter and toss to coat with salt, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  • Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on your prepared sheet pan and transfer to the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown, fork-tender and crispy around the edges.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, chives, or another fresh herb, if desired.


You may also cook your potatoes in a large cast-iron skillet (instead of the baking sheet) if preferred.
You may also use this recipe with baby potatoes. Simply replace the fingerling potatoes with 1.5 pounds of halved (red, yellow, or purple) baby potatoes.
To store leftover roasted fingerling potatoes:
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days. Reheat in the microwave, or, for best results, in a preheated oven set to 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes.
  • To freeze these potatoes, simply transfer to a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 8-10 months. To reheat, tent with foil and bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes; remove the foil and continue to bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until crispy.
