Forget the ketchup. Serve roasted potatoes with either of these creamy sauces for a special side dish.
Chive Sour Cream
In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. For extra zing, stir in 1 minced garlic clove.
Garam Masala Yogurt
In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon garam masala, and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes
Serves 4 to 6
2 pounds fingerling or small red potatoes, cut in half lengthwise
2 tablespoons extra- virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, oil, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to toss potatoes and coat evenly with oil and seasonings.
3. Transfer potatoes to the baking sheet. Turn each potato cut side down and spread potatoes into a single layer. Bake until skins are wrinkled and spotty brown, 30 to 35 minutes.
4. Place baking sheet on cooling rack and let cool for 5 minutes. Serve.
