These duck fat roasted potatoes are a game-changer. Like my melting potatoes, they are easy enough for busy weeknights, yet perfect for special occasions or holidays.


Fingerling potatoes

Duck fat

Ground black pepper

Kosher salt

Whole grain mustard

Sherry vinegar



Duck fat gives these potatoes a richness that you don’t get from plain oil. Don’t worry, the potatoes won’t taste like duck, but they do have a deeper flavor than those roasted in oil.

The first step with any potato recipe is giving them a good rinse. If you have a scrubber, use it to get any dirt off of your spuds.

Then slice potatoes in half, lengthwise, and toss in a large mixing bowl with rendered duck fat, salt and pepper.

Next, place the cut potatoes on a baking sheet, ready for the oven.  Roast potatoes in a hot oven until they are easily pierced with a knife.

Allow potatoes to cool slightly (enough to handle them), then toss in a medium mixing bowl with whole grain mustard, sherry vinegar, parsley and chives.

These fingerlings are done in roughly 30 minutes, from start to finish. No more boring side dishes for dinner with this quick and easy recipe in your back pocket and it’s special enough for holidays.
