Potatoes? With Lemon?

Yup, it works. The olive oil and Meyer lemon team up and crust the bottom sides of the potatoes with a sweet, flavorful patina.

Roasted Fingerlings with Meyer Lemon
Recipe 319 of 365

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat 1 pound fingerling potatoes with a teaspoon or two of olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Squeeze the juice of half a Meyer lemon on top. Slice the other half of the lemon into four wedges, toss in with the potatoes, and roast 35 to 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

  1. Great idea to add lemon wedges to the roasting potatoes – did you eat the lemon pieces afterwards, or just let them flavor the fingerlings?

  2. Good Q, Jessamyn – they weren’t quite soft enough to eat, so I just squeezed their hot juices over the potatoes.
