  • Fingerling Potato ???

    I'm hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for friends this year and I'm planning on having just about everything other then the turkey prepared and/or cooked the day before. I was thinking about having rosated fingerling potatoes. My questions is ..... so that I'm not "roasting" potatoes forever in the over on turkey day, do you think that I could boil the potatoes until almost done the day before and then roast them for just a little bit on turkey day to finish cooking them anf or course to heat them thru and give them a pretty color that day?

    I don't know about cooking them ahead of time and then reheating, not sure about that. Why don't you make a "dry run" so to speak and see how it comes out.
    I make a lot of roasted fingerling potatoes, I just love their flavor. I usually cut them in half , small ones I leave alone, drizzle with olive oil , salt, pepper, paprika, and spread on cookie sheet and put in 400 ° for barely 25 minutes. I don't know how many people you are serving, but you probably could roast the potatoes together with some other food at the same time ?

      I MADE THESE AND THEY WERE AWESOME!! I BET YOU CAN BOIL THEM THE DAY BEFORE AND SMASH (NOT MASHED POTATOS) OIL AND BAKE WHEN YOU WANT THEM.

          I do mine like Sabine.
          Just before putting in oven, I have zapped them for a few minutes in Microwave in a bowl of water to precook them. Dry off well, then proceed as Sabine said.........this gets the cooking started, then finish them off in the oven. Cannot tell the difference.
          All veggies are great roasted!
          I love adding baby carrots with the potatoes also! So wonderfully sweet! Amazing taste! Beautiful color!
          Try it!

            Roasted Veggies are so good, and so easy to prepare. Sometimes I do a medley of squash, zucchini, red bell pepper, japanese eggplant, red onions and cherry tomatoes, so good. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper and pop in the oven. Or roasted fennel. roasted asparagus.

                  Japanese eggplant is so much better then regular eggplant. It's almost shaped like an english ( hot house ) cucumber, lighter in purple color, not bitter, no / less seeds. I don't even peel it. Cooks quickly. But when I make eggplant parmesan I use the traditional eggplant.

                      It's called either japanese or chinese eggplant, right now I am drawing a blank on which name is correct. But your produce manager will know what you are talking about. In my store it's not located with the regular eggplant, it's with the oriental fresh veggies.
