A few Sundays ago I had plans to roast a whole chicken for dinner but with zero side dish plans. Pat and I  headed out and stopped by our nearby market to grab some things to go with the chicken and a few things for the week. Three pound bags of fingerling potatoes immediately caught my attention, so I grabbed a bag and a few heads of broccoli (for roasting!) to go with our dinner.

Once I was home I quickly pulled this recipe together with the help of my rosemary plant. I love the smell of fresh rosemary. The plant is right by our front steps and I frequently rub my fingers along its branches just to breathe in that woodsy smell.

This recipe is one of those just-sort-of-happened kind of recipes. It’s so incredibly simple with its straight forward ingredients and the smoked salt really adds a whole lot of flavor. A simple side dish consisting of 5 ingredients and goes with just about everything. What’s not to love?

Here are those simple ingredients I was talking about. Nothing too fancy, well, except for that smoked salt maybe.

Slice the fingerlings lengthwise in half.

Next, place the potatoes onto a metal baking sheet and drizzle with oil.

Next, toss until the potatoes are covered generously in oil, the salt and rosemary. Roast in a 400 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until the bottoms are crispy and deep golden brown.

Don’t attempt to try to flip them while they’re in the oven or half of the the potato will be stuck to the pan. Be patient and allow the potatoes to cool for about 5 minutes before trying to remove them.

Then season the potatoes with a few grinds of fresh black pepper. Done.

Crisp, salty and rosemary-y on the outside and soft, tender and buttery on the inside. You will love them. Promise.

Enjoy!
