Garlic & Parsley Fingerling Potatoes

I have wanted to try fingerling potatoes for a long time. I’m not sure why I always put off buying them though. Probably because I always had a 10+ lb. bag of potatoes at home already. So when I ran out of potatoes the day before a quick trip to the grocery store, I decided the time had finally come.

I found a wonderful bag that contained a medley of different fingerling potatoes. (I think it’s from Green Giant, but I’m not positive.) It was perfect! Plus the different potato types made for a beautiful and interesting presentation.

I decided to top the potatoes with a garlic and parsley butter mixture that’s always been a hit at our house and I think it was the perfect decision. These were so good! The fingerling potatoes were a huge hit with the kids and the adults LOVED all that garlic and butter.
