Grilled Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Grill Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

There’s something wonderfully satisfying about discovering new things in familiar areas. I found myself visiting my family in northern Michigan this week. It is an area I know all too well as it was where I spent all of my childhood.

I decided to make a quick stop at a local bakery for a piece of pie (more on that later) while visiting a few shops. I then realized there was a grocery market next door I had not yet explored. The space featured a butcher counter with a bounty of beautiful meats. Around the corner from the butcher was a nice selection of local produce. I’m a huge fan of fingerling potatoes and I couldn’t help but take advantage of their reasonable price.

Instead of heating up my mom’s kitchen, I decided to make an impromptu roasting basket by punching a few holes in the base of a disposable aluminum tray. The potatoes were wonderfully tender and lightly browned with very little mess. Paired with grilled steaks and sautéed confetti corn, it ended up being a great meal.
