These lovely fingerling potatoes were part of our lunch.
SO easy and tasty. They really don't require much prep and just take some time baking in the oven so it's a no brainer in my book.
Speaking of books. The baking time gave me 20 minutes to read a few more chapters out loud to my boys for school. We are reading "Hatchet" by Gary Paulsen. It's about a 13 year old boy that gets stranded in a plane crash all by himself for 2 months with just a hatchet. The city boy learns all about how to survive in the woods. It's right up the "boys' alley" of interest.
Oh. Where were we?
Give the potatoes a good rinse and a scrub if you are so inclined.
This was a 2 pound bag of potatoes. Just enough for lunch for 6 with a nice bowl of raw veggies (and a muffin for dessert!)
Slice the potatoes in half. Some of them were a little large so I sliced them in quarters.
I put them in an oiled baking dish and seasoned the potatoes with garlic powder, ground italian seasoning, paprika, salt, pepper, and ground minced onion.
I put in a few pat of butter. My boys need the fat and I need the flavor.
Bright and colorful with Instagram.
I love sunshine on my food!
Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes till nice and browned and crispy. Give it a stir halfway through the baking time so they cook evenly.
These were finger licking fingerling potatoes!
You could use any potatoes but the baby ones are very flavorful.
