Here’s one of Jeff’s favorite side dishes.  They are super easy to make and very tasty.  Fingerling potatoes come in many varieties – you can buy white, red, or multi-colored (which include purple).  I personally love the multi-colored because I love the mix of colors on my dish.  Try this recipe instead of your typical potato to mix it up!



  • 2 pounds fingerling potatoes (any color or variety)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Sea salt & pepper
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, chopped
  • 3-4 leaves of sage, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter (optional)


Wash the potatoes and put into a large pot.  Cover with 1/4 cup olive oil, butter (optional), then sea salt and pepper to taste.  Add in the chopped rosemary and sage and mix thoroughly.  Cover the pot and let cook on medium-high for about 30-40 minutes, or until soft and golden-browned. I would recommend opening them periodically to stir and check them.
