Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Roasted potato is one of my favorite side dish. Potatoes are so versatile, they can be made using so many different techniques. And roasted potatoes is one of them. I went for grocery on weekend and bought these cute fingerling potatoes. Fingerlings are small, stubby finger like shaped potatoes hence the name 'Fingerling'. Roasting potatoes with herbs or just salt and pepper makes a quick side dish.

10 Fingerling potatoes
1 tsp freshly chopped rosemary
Salt and Pepper as per taste
Extra Virgin Olive Oil to drizzle around 1 tbs
1 tsp balsamic vinegar

Preheat the oven to 420 F.
If the potatoes are big you need to cut them in half lengthwise otherwise use as it is. Wash and pat dry fingerlings.
Arrange fingerlings in a oven proof baking dish. Drizzle olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Mix everything together so all the fingerlings are coated with oil, herb and spices.
Roast them in preheated oven for about 20-22 minutes until nicely roasted, turning twice in middle so that potatoes are cooked and browned evenly. Remove the dish from the oven, now add balsamic vinegar and mix it with potatoes stirring once or twice so that potatoes are coated evenly. Slid the dish back into the oven and bake for 5 more minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
They may look weird once done because of the balsamic vinegar but tastes amazing. Just a different take on regular roasted potatoes.
