F2F Chef Tips: Fingerling & Petite Potatoes
Fingerlings and petites are darling ingredients for their concentrated potato flavor and stand-out appearance. Whether roasted, pan fried, tossed into salads or simmered in stews, they make a statement. Take culinary innovation to the next level with these easy-to-work-with potatoes.
Here’s some inspiration to spark your creativity:
- Split fingerlings lengthwise and oven-roast to serve as a small-plate or side-dish alternative to fries, enjoyed with a flavored dipping sauce like spicy ketchup, romesco or Sriracha mayo.
- Convert petites into succulent confit potatoes by slow cooking in butter and oil.
- With little to no prep, fingerlings and petites are optimal for off-site cooking and catering.
- Roast a combination of colors for an attractive side.
