These Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes, seasoned with fresh herbs and garlic, make a tasty side dish for steak, fish or chicken!
I want to start by saying that my heart aches for the community of Sutherland Springs. It’s heartbreaking to hear the details of what happened. I myself came from a small town and went to a small Missionary Baptist church. I can only imagine the pain they must be feeling.To lose anyone in your church family is difficult, but the number of lives lost that day is unfathomable. We had some amazing people in our church, many of whom have gone on to be with the Lord in the last several years. This week, I am especially thankful for the opportunity I had to grow up surrounded by a loving church family. One that encouraged me in my singing and taught me the gospel. I was baptized in that church, met my now husband and got married there. So many fond memories that I will always cherish. I hope you will join me in praying for the families and friends who lost loved ones and those who are recovering from their injuries.
Speaking of being thankful, we are quickly approaching the day where we all give thanks for the blessings in our life.

How do you roast fingerling potatoes?
One great thing about this recipe, is that it doesn’t take long to roast fingerling potatoes. They only take about 20-25 minutes to cook, and you have one easy and healthy side dish! I used my 10-inch cast iron skillet to roast mine. It was the perfect size for one pound of potatoes. Preheating the pan is a key element in this recipe. It helps in getting the potatoes evenly browned and saves a bit of time.
If you are hosting a small Thanksgiving dinner, these roasted fingerling potatoes are one of the easiest and best side dishes you can serve your guests.
*I recommend adding the garlic about halfway through the roasting time so that it doesn’t burn and turn bitter.
Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes
A deliciously easy and healthy side dish for steak, fish or chicken.
- 1 pound fingerling potatoes, scrubbed and dried (halve any really large ones)
- 1-1/2 tbsp melted ghee or olive oil
- 2 tsp chopped fresh sage
- 1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
- 1/2 tsp fine sea salt or salt to taste
- 2 small cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 425°F and place cast iron skillet or baking sheet in oven while it heats.
In a large bowl, add the potatoes, oil of choice, fresh herbs and sea salt. Once the oven is preheated, carefully remove the skillet from the oven, add the potatoes to the pan and place back into the oven. Roast them for about 20 minutes, adding the sliced garlic about halfway through cook time, or until crispy on the outside and they pierce easily with the tip of a knife. Exterior will still be slightly firm, with tender insides. Serve immediately.
