Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Apples

Roasting potatoes alongside another vegetable or even in this case combined with apples, is my favorite way of serving up the yummy spud.

These distinctive crescent shaped and thin skinned fingerling potatoes are a perfect match with a great baking apple such as the Cortland or Empire. Really though, any apple that holds its shape when baked will do for that matter. However, I wouldn’t use the McIntosh as this variety gets mushy and falls apart when roasted.

Also, look for apples with bright red skins that will provide aย lovely contrast to the more palish yellow skin of the fingerling potato.

Keeping the seasonings to a few simple ingredients allows a nice balance between sweet and savory.

Aside from the customary salt and pepper, I added dried organic mountain oregano which I use quite often when making any kind of roast. You can purchase the dried stalks whole and keep in plastic bags for months since these retain their natural fragrances and pair brilliantly with meats or vegetables.

All that’s then needed is a generous drizzle of good quality olive oil and a few squirts of fresh lemon juice to make the flavors pop.

Author:
Recipe type: Vegetarian
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1½ pounds fingerling potatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 3 medium red apples, cored and cut into wedges ( I used Cortland apples )
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice from half a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano ( I used an organic brand )
  • fine sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet pan with parchment paper (for easy cleanup).
  3. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat all over.
  4. Transfer the potato and apple mix to the prepared sheet pan while spreading them out in a single layer.
  5. You'll want to leave some space between the potatoes and apples so that they roast beautifully.
  6. Roast for about 30 minutes, turning the slices over after 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and enjoy while still warm.

  1. Why are fingerlings so darn good?! I love them! They’re not sold where I live, but I always grab them when I’m out of town. Great recipe with the apples and oregano!

    • I LOVE them too Mimi! Funny thing… I went out of town to search for them and only to finally find them sooo close to home. The apples add a lovely contrast in texture and taste and are so delicious. Thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚

    • That is how hubby and I coordinate our summertime meals. He’s in charge of the barbecue while I whip up some type of potato dish and salad!! Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•

  6. Omg I can’t stop drooling, Marisa! I feel like going in the kitchen right now and making this ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Excellent recipe! Love the contrasting flavours of sweet and savoury here! I much as I love roasted potatoes, this is so much more exciting than plain boring roasted potatoes!

  8. This comes under the heading โ€œ why have I never thought of thatโ€, but fortunately you have and I cannot wait to pair this with a plump roast chicken. Thank you as always Marisa.

    • I am certain you would have definitely come up with it eventually Bella and it would be outstanding!! Also, accompanied with a plump roast chicken sounds delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ’•

  9. Beautiful recipe Marisa. Amazing combination of flavours and beautiful captures.

  10. That is a tasty looking combination Marisa. When I cook a German meal I combine sauerkraut, apples and potatoes. I’ll be doing your combo next.

  11. I love fingerling potatoes, and this combination looks amazing! Can’t wait to give it a try!

  12. I just picked up some red and white fingerling potatoes today. I bet the addition of lemon really takes them up notch! I was just listening to The Splendid Table podcast where they were talking about the addition of acid to give food that zing. I am looking forward to making these this weekend!

    • Hi Sandra, the lemon does indeed brighten up the flavors! Over all its a delicious, quick and easy dish for any day of the week! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. This looks and sounds fantastic!! Your photos are beautiful!! I usually roast potatoes on their own, but I would have never thought of pairing them with apples! I’m wondering if Pink Lady apples would work in this recipe? It’s my kids’ favourite apple to eat, so they might be willing to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Pink Lady apples are really delicious and have a crunchy bite so they might just hold up well when roasted however I’ve never tried it. I love combining potatoes and other veggies together and sometimes apples. It makes for a lovely contrast in colour and flavour. Do let me know how it goes with the pink lady apples if you give it a go. Thanks so much Rosa๐Ÿ˜Š
