Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Chive Butter

A lovely side to this week’s suggested main dish.

1½ pounds fingerling potatoes, washed and halved lengthwise
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
Lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
Fresh chive sprigs for garnish
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

1. Preheat your oven to 400°. In a large bowl, toss the halved fingerling potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper until evenly coated. Spread the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

2. Roast the potatoes in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden and tender. Flip the potatoes halfway through cooking for even browning.

3. While the potatoes are roasting, prepare the chive butter. In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, chopped fresh chives, minced garlic (if using), and lemon zest. Mix until well combined.

4. Once the potatoes are roasted, transfer them to a serving dish. Dollop the chive butter mixture over the hot roasted fingerling potatoes, allowing it to melt and coat the potatoes. Garnish with additional fresh chive sprigs for a pop of color and added freshness.
