Simple Side Dish

Sometimes I need a simple side dish to complete my dinner menu.  I make these roasted fingerling potatoes when I don't have a lot of extra time to prepare a starchy side dish.  Even though they're simple to prepare, they were elegant enough to serve for Christmas dinner this year.  The fresh rosemary from the Dekalb Farmer's Market made all the difference in these little potato gems.

Herb Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Whole Grain Mustard
1 pound fingerling potatoes
1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon whole grain mustard
salt and pepper

Combine rosemary, oil, mustard, salt and pepper in bowl.

Add potatoes and toss to coat.

Spread on a foil lined baking sheet and roast 40 minutes at 400. 

The roasted potatoes were a big hit with the beef tenderloin that I served for dinner on Christmas.  Everyone really seemed to like these little potatoes.  They were nearly gone by the time dinner was over.  Fingerling potatoes are readily available at supermarkets all over the states.  Don't be afraid to pick some up and roast them for your next family dinner.

Bon Appetit!
