I'm not much of a potato fan, they usually just kind of bore me. But at a BBQ a couple of summers ago, I tried the most amazing potatoes. They were so sweet, and so salty, and so much chewier and substantive than I'd ever imagined a potato could be. I interviewed the chef, and learned two secrets: surprisingly low heat, and lots of salt. —linzarella
What You'll Need
fingerling potatoes on the small side
plenty of olive oil
more salt than you think you need
Preheat the oven to 325. Put the potatoes in a baking dish, toss them with olive oil and salt, and roast for 60 - 90 minutes, turning a couple of times throughout, til they are crispy and caramelized on the outside, and chewy on the inside.
Note: depending on the size of your potatoes and the heat of the oven, cooking time may vary, so start checking after 40 minutes.
