Crispy Salt and Pepper Fingerling Potatoes

salt and pepper fingerlings: foodie with a life

This recipe is such a classic, and straight comfort food, if you ask me.  I like to buy the tini-fingerling potatoes because they cook so quickly, they are naturally sweet and really cute.  Get a pound of little potatoes and cut them lengthwise into small bite sized pieces so that they have an opportunity to get crispy on as many sides as possible.
