Cut And Season The Potatoes! 

To get the fingerling potatoes ready to go in the oven, I like to cut them in half. Cut them lengthwise along the long side of the potato. This will provide a bigger surface area which is great for the roasting because it allows more of the potato to be coated in the oil and seasoning.

One the potatoes are cut in half, toss them in the oil, salt, pepper and minced garlic. Then spread them in a ceramic baking dish or baking sheet (lined with parchment paper).

That’s it. Prepping these potatoes for the oven is simple and quick. These oven roasted fingerling potatoes are perfect for a weeknight meal!
