Small fingerlings become deliciously fluffy inside when they’re roasted. We like the crunchy texture of kosher salt, but you can also use 1/2 teaspoon regular table salt. Red-fleshed fingerling potatoes are waxier than yellow-fleshed, so they crisp on the outside; use whatever variety you can find, though, since either will work.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1-1/2 pounds red- or yellow-fleshed fingerling potatoes
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
Preheat oven to 400°. Combine oil and potatoes on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with salt and peppers; toss to coat. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until tender when pierced with a knife.

Cate’s Notes: The recipe didn’t specify cutting the fingerlings, but I cut mine in half.
