Garlic and Thyme Fingerlings

I’ll admit, potatoes are my favorite vegetables if I didn’t have to hear from the peanut gallery that they aren’t veggies, but starches. I mean, the good Lord gave us a veggie (starch) that can be made into a cold picnic salad, mashed goodness, french fries, or hashed browns and tastes damn good boiled or pan-seared like the recipe I’m sharing today. My pan-seared fingerling recipe is a delicious dish to add to meal prep combinations, weekday meals, and of course those long, stressful days when you could just use a potato… or is that just me?

Fingerlings are a small, usually narrow potato that has more potassium than a banana and also a great source of vitamin B6 and is fat and cholesterol-free (that is until you add other ingredients. I like to serve these with a hearty meal like steak tips or even with baked salmon.

Instructions
  1. After your fingerlings have been quartered, add butter to a large skillet (I always prefer my cast iron skillet) over a medium-high heat
  2. In a large bowl, mix olive oil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper to quartered fingerlings and stir to combine ingredients.
  3. Once the butter in skillet has melted, add potato quarters and cook for 4 minutes before stirring and cooking for an additional 4-6 minutes until the quarters are crispy and fork-tender.
  4. Once finished cooking, transfer sauteed potatoes to a plat and serve warm. Eat up and dont forget to share a picture and tag me! @elle.thefoodie
