Ok, who doesn’t like bacon and potatoes? My guess is no one.

So, I don’t think it’ll take much convincing to get you sold on this recipe. Especially when we’re talking about fingerling potatoes!

What? You’ve never had fingerling potatoes? You’re missing out, my friend! But if you’re familiar with fingerling potatoes, you know how amazingly buttery these potatoes are.

Fingerling potatoes are deliciously buttery and earthy skinny potatoes

These skinny elongated potatoes are unique and flavorful! With creamy, buttery taste and firm texture, they are especially great for roasting.

I still remember that one morning in Canada when I was served amazingly flavorful, pan-roasted fingerling potatoes for breakfast. My very first encounter with this interesting variety of potatoes. We loved it so much so we’ve been growing these potatoes ourselves every summer for the last couple of years.

A few words about the recipe…

To take things up a notch, I smeared pesto on the fingerling potatoes and wrapped them in thin bacon slices. Boom, flavor explosion!! If potatoes could talk, they’d tell you how incredibly happy they are. 🙂

Oh and if you don’t have pesto on hand, don’t sweat. A little bit of extra sharp cheddar cheese would be a great alternative as well.

  1. Yummy! Potatoes and bacon are my family’s favorite! I’ve actually never seen fingerling potatoes… im gona have to look at local farmers market… Thank you Shinee for sharing this recipe with us!

    • Hi, Olya! Farmers market is the right place to look for those fingerlings. Hope you’ll find them. It’s my favorite type of potatoes in the fall, as we harvest ours.

  2. I love fingerlings…wrapped in bacon with pesto…that is a home run! Hopefully our CSA will have fingerlings this week because I just made a fresh batch of pesto!
