Oven-Fried Fingerling Potatoes

I discovered fingerlings at a Farmer's Market a couple of years ago and found the best method that makes them fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. The parboil method may not be necessary, but otherwise it won't be so fluffy on the inside. Duck or goose fat is ideal for this, but I have never tried it due to cholesterol. Make sure to rough the potatoes up well in the colander to get a maximum crispness on the outside. I tend to eat them cold from the fridge the next day, but they can also be used as an appetizer with an Aioli dip or one of your choice. They are seriously addicting in our family!

  • Shake the potatoes in the colander to rough the outsides and fluff the insides.
  • Place the potatoes in the hot oil and toss carefully to coat them.
  • Turn oven down to 400 degrees.
  • Turn potatoes over once to help them "fry" more evenly.
  • Let them cook for about 40 minutes or until the outside are golden brown and bubbly.
  • Salt the potatoes with some coarse salt and enjoy!
