Crunchy Fingerling Potatoes

  • Author: nocrumbsleft
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 30 min
  • Total Time: 40 min
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 lbs fingerling potatoes,
  • 2 Tbsp duck fat, or more if needed
  • 1 tsp salt


Pre-heat oven to 400°F.

Par-boil the potatoes for 5 minutes. Drain and let cool. Then cut the potatoes in half.

In a cast iron pan (or oven-safe pan) over medium heat, melt the duck fat to cover the bottom of the pan. Place the potatoes cut side down and sprinkle with salt.

Cook in the oven until brown and crispy, about 30 minutes.


The timing depends on the size of your potatoes. Start checking the potatoes at 20 minutes by pulling the pan out of the oven and looking at the underside of the potatoes.
